Wrong connection, it should be a female USB, not a Samsung type of port.

Its not the wrong connection, the female micro USB part is where your charger plugs into to give power
And the big female USB is where you plug in flash drives etc...
And what do you mean "not a Samsung type of port"

Haha no worries
I really wish the N4 does supports an actual port for flash drives or any other kind of USB
It really defeats the purpose of having OTG
Good thing I got a portable solar powered external battery to plug into

Believe it only affects the pinout for MHL though, so OTG should work fine. Not 100% sure though since a friend with an S3 ran into issues with an OTG cable I gave him.
