HTC One M8s - Does my phone support USB On the Go?
Does my phone support USB On the Go?At present, USB Host is only available on those devices which are shipped with, or have been updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or later.
This includes the One X, One X+, One and later.
The USB function only supports low power devices such as USB sticks and keyboards. It does not support USB Game controllers as these draw too much power from the phone to be viable.
If the device is stuck in USB host mode, or seems to be randomly enabling USB host mode when nothing is connected, this could indicate a hardware issue with the USB port.
- Ask the customer to check that nothing is inserted into the USB port.
- Blow into the USB port to remove any debris which may be in there.
- Soft reset the handset.
- Backup and master reset the handset as a last resort and if the problem still exists, please book for repair.
