One uses a hdmi cable from tablet to TV, the other uses a chromecast dongle in your TV's hdmi port and sends the signal through your wireless network to the TV from your device.

Does cgromecast do the same as HDMI cables, mirror what's on the screen of the phone?  Or does it only work when the chromecast logo appear on the screen?

You can show your Chrome desktop through Chromecast, anything you can see using the Chrome browser can be pushed to the TV via WiFi. Also push YouTube, Netflix and several others.

I was more interested in using it with my galaxy s3..  I stream UFC fights from illegal sites..  Galaxy s3 has Adobe flash player.. My tablet doesn't anymore
