With a lot of people owning smartphones, it’s surprising only a few people are maximizing their devices. When all you do with your device is to make and receive phone calls and surf the web, the device is being underused. Your Android phone or tablet offers a lot more than you know and there are lots of accessories to get the most out of your device.
One of such accessories is an OTG (on-the-go) cable. You probably have it already and it’s possible you’ve never seen it but this tiny cable opens your device to more possibilities. 6 Awesome Things You Can Do On Android With an OTG Cable
1. Charging a phone with another phone
This isn’t new and it’s one of the things most people do with an OTG cable. An OTG cable easily lets you charge another phone with your phone so far it supports it. It’s as simple as connecting the OTG cable to the host and then plugging the phone to be charged into the female port of the OTG cable as shown above.
The host device should have a high battery capacity though.
2. Super-fast File Transfer Between Devices
When transferring files from one Android phone to another, the first thing that comes to mind is Flashare or Xender. These apps connect through WiFi and it’s a known fact there’s a limitation in terms of speed. As far as I know, using an OTG cable is the fastest way to transfer files between devices.
When transferring heavy files like game data and HD movies, using an OTG cable is the best way to the get it done within a very short time.
