when I use a USB keyboard with my XZU, the cable sticks out "up" or to the left when phone in landscape mode



I haven't been able to find a right-angled USB OTG cable where it turns the other way

can anyone help?
thanks!

I found these:

However, what might be more useful are right angle converters in both Liberal and Conservative forms (left and right leaning)

a little bit off topic but I have bought 2 USB OTG cables off eBay and neither works with my Z ultra, but they do work with the wife's Note 3. Does anyone know if there's a setting I'm maybe forgetting to turn on or if I need a specific cable?

There's no power at all going to the devices I connect, have tried everything from keyboards, thumb drives and dualshock controllers.

The one i bought from Amazon a year ago works perfect, it was $1.99

I didn't do anything special to get USB OTG working.
It could be that your USB device is drawing too much power, which a Note could manage but the XZU can't?

I don't (yet) have this phone, so maybe I'm missing something...
Why not flip the phone the other way, so the USB port is on the top?

the fully rectangular version is from when not all devices supported otg so they made them that way as a sort of failsafe to stop unsupported devices being tampered with (i personally believe it was to coin in further on cable replacements on high end devices)
if you have one of the old rectangular otg cables laying about just carefully file away at the edges a little bit until it fits smoothly (dont force it!!)...

tested with an old nokia n8 cable on my lg g2 and it works just fine!!!
