Connecting USB on my phone Android
Before having to buy the cable is necessary that you take notice if your d ispositivo supports OTG . For this there are applications that allow us to confirm this. The problem is that if you do not use those apps generally do not is specified in the features of the phone when we bought it.
That is why it is important that any download from these options: USB OTG Checker or OTG USB HOST Checker. Any of these options will serve you to check if your device supports OTG.
The only problem is that even these applications have a range of failure. The way to be completely safe is to purchase a cable and test. What we must make clear is that it is very likely to be quite old phones are not supported.
This USB OTG support was introduced in Android Honeycomb so that newer phones may have compatibility.

How to use a USB flash drive on my Android
Once you have the cable and secure’re sure your device supports it. The only thing left to do is simply connect it to the phone and from the USB connector type C connect the pendrive.
Possibly a notification appears on your mobile device where it notifies you connect via USB to be a storage unit. This way you can copy all the files you want to the flash drive or vice versa.
Another thing I would recommend is that you have a file explorer quality to browse all the files from your phone. For this we recommend the ES File Explorer application which is fairly complete in every way.
One thing to mention is that the Connection USB OTG can consume a lot of battery so we recommend you connect, use time wise and then disconnect, do not leave it connected If you’re not doing anything because you will see how the battery runs down pretty fast.
Another thing recommended is that clearing the pendrive and not a disconnect. Because this can corrupt all the files that are in it and lose that information unless you have a backup of it.
For this you will have to go to the notification that appears at the top of your device or Settings & gt; Storage and you will see the USB drive you connected . From here you can disassemble it and once you confirm the operating system you can safely disconnect your device.
