I'm using this phone more than 5 months and stil works great. If someone said using this phone 5 months and begin to had trouble, how hard you used your phone?? Much people didn't realized sometimes their habit when using the phone can make a trouble for the phone.
If people said this phone not supported OTG because not listed on the specs, read the specs Galaxy S8, and you can't find the OTG listed too. But on the S8 you got the adaptor, and when I tried the adaptor on my A5 (2017), the adaptor work fine. So my conclution is THIS PHONE SUPPORT OTG.
Lucky me, I had A5 (2017) and Galaxy S8, so I really really tried before I write this opinion.
Meeh, 01 Jul 2017Yes it supports otg but type-c only. The free adaptor (micro usb to type-c) is for charging on... moreThat's true, we have to buy separately the adaptor or buying USB type C flash drive
Reptilian, 01 Jul 2017If it doesn't say in the specs then it doesn't have OTG.really? I have both A5 (2017) and S8, both of them no otg on the specs, but on S8 I got the adaptor, so I tried to my A5 (2017) using the adaptor from my S8 and work.....
