Default LS980 and USB OTG

cant find a solid info that the LS980 supports USB OTG. tried google and now that their discussion filter is gone, it make finding answers a bit harder. same thing here, nothing for sure that it works, but it does for other G2's??

anyway, just got this phone last week and also got a new canon t5i dslr. was hoping to be able to pull the sdhc out of the camera and get an OTG reader for my wifes phone( also a ls980) so she can post pics without the need of a pc, whilst out and about.

thanks for any info!

It should support USB otg I can't think of any reason that lg would disable that feature I know that it is supported in android 4.2.2 by default but it should work.

Works on my d800, I don't see why it wouldnt on yours. Buy a $3 adapter on amazon/eBay and check. I'm about 99.999% positive it will work.

Well i have a ls980 just like you and although i have not used usb otg on my phone i can say that when i go into recovery to wipe data there is an option to wipe usb otg data. I dont know why they would put an option for that if you were not able to use it.

I have a D802 and a generic OTG cable. My friends USB 4GB stick works without problem, but when I try to connect my Kingston DT101 4GB USB stick, that "stick animation" is shown on my LG G2, but memory isn't mounted. I can't see my USB stick in Settings -> Memory. Is there something I can do to make my Kingstone USB stick OTG compatible?
