Otg for cellphone

As our phones get more powerful, we use them for everything. In fact, our phone is so capable nowadays that many have completely eliminated both the landline and the desktop or laptop computers. So how can we make this small technology even more functional? We find ways to make them do even more! If you are ready to ditch the computer and explore the freedom of transforming your phone with simple solutions, listen up.

OTG adapters are accessories that come in dongles or compact adapters and allow you to connect external devices to your mobile device. What can you do with this? It's kind of an unlimited thing. Here are some fun and productivity-boosting ideas:

  • You can add a full-sized keyboard to your phone, so next time you travel you can quickly reply to emails and complete work tasks without having to carry your laptop and you can do it from anywhere!
  • Add a game controller and make your gaming experience more exciting.
  • Access contents from memory cards, cameras and recorders and manage them as if you were using a computer.

You can also do other things, such as make your MacBook compatible with standard-sized USB accessories, use your phone to access data without possibly sharing it with other computer users, forgo a desktop or computer for everyday tasks, and more.

How to choose the right OTG for your device? 

There are so many to choose from and the price range doesn't help or tell you anything, right? Use this simple guide to get you on the right track:

  1. Locate the USB access port for your device. Mobile phones and tablets use the charging port, while laptops have dedicated USB ports. 
  2. Identify the connection your device has. Most iPhones have a Lightning connector which has white stripes on the plug that goes to the phone. If you have a Samsung phone, you might have a micro-USB or USB-C charging port. A MacBook normally uses a Type-C connection for USB ports.  
  3. Select your compatible OTG. The most popular ones right now are USB-C or Type-C USB and Lightning Connector OTG
  4. Buy a quality OTG that uses the FILES native app on your phone. If you are new to this, making sure you don't need a dedicated app will make things easier.  

Now you got the basics and can enjoy more flexibility and privacy using your phone. Hope you liked this short read. Subscribe and follow us on social media for more useful and fun content.
