    Like iphone and some android devices...
    With an addapter USB-C to VGA/HDMI a lumia 950 or 950 XL can project slides in a projector?

    I believe it does. It will either let one perform a straight screen share OR connect as a continuum device...this is based on how it behaves with Miracast.

    You can certainly buy a continuum device, more useful in the long run and we have one for sale here in our marketplace.

    For the video over USB-C and HDMI, you can read this Reddit post:

    You already have a projector, right?
    If not, a lot of newer ones support Miracast and WiDi, so you don't necessarily need a physical connection.
    I haven't looked recently, but I'm betting there will be "lightly used" continuum devices going on sale soon, cheap. I just missed the free continuum deal when I got mine, sort of bummed about that, and waiting for a bargain myself...

    nice long discussion about this in the regular 950 forums.... http://forums.windowscentral.com/mic...inuum-vga.html

    The key is getting a GOOD USB-C to HDMI adapter and a POWERED (needs power supplied, normally by USB) HDMI to VGA adapter

    I have used this with a 28" "gaming" monitor (used in casino games, has VGA and DVI) as a test

    Here's one.

    It's 4K capable (the 950 isn't), I guess that's the reason for the high price.
    I think this is a better solution than continuum if you use it in different rooms, all you need is the cable. With continuum you need three cables besides the box.
    Only drawback with just this HDMI cable is that it won't charge your 950.
    Wireless charging can solve that if needed.

    The third alternative is Microsoft wireless display adapter (preferably version 2, not 1), which is a Miracast adapter for any display or projector with HDMI. Your phone will be free of cables, which means that you can charge it while using Miracast. The drawback is that the adapter needs power from a USB port, make sure the projectors got that.
