One of the best things about the PS4 is the remote play feature that allows you to mirror the screen onto a Sony device running Android, or a PS Vita. You can even pair your DualShock 4 controller via Bluetooth to your Sony phone or tablet to have the full PS4 experience away from the big screen.

The biggest caveat was that it was restricted to a Sony smartphone or tablet, until now. Thanks to the guys over at XDA, PS4 Remote Play has been ported to work on any Android device running KitKat (4.4) or higher.
