I need a remote desktop app for Android to control my Huawei smartphone using my big PC screen.
Pocket Controller for Android would be the perfect app but it's only for Samsung.
Is there an alternative to it for smartphones different than Samsung?

TeamViewer is free for personal use, but it uses a Web server for initiating the connection.

Thanks!
I thought that it were only for controlling a PC from a smartphone but I found that there is another app named "TeamViewer QuickSupport" that acts as a server on smartphones  (although not all brands are supported) to be controlled from a PC.

Take a look at AirDroid, www.airdroid.com, that will do what you want.

AirDroid offers a lot of options for remote controlling particular features, but no full remote control (using the Phone directly from the PC). I use both.

You can dial the phone from your PC, then talk using speaker phone or earbuds/mike plugged into the phone. You can't actually use the PC instead of the phone for phone calls.
