Lenovo Vibe K5 does support the OTG Cable as per the specification listed on the site. Lenovo however does not ship with the detachable cable with the device. So you have to purchase the OTG cable with the device package. The same cable can be used for file transfer. It can be used for charging the device too. And if you wish to use the device as a host with another device then that is also possible. Tablet keyboards and mouse can be attached as well.

Well, the specification sheet for the device confirms the availability of USB OTG functionality on Lenovo Vibe K5. The phone lets you connect your external hard drives to your phone to view the files stored on them. It may be noted that if the file system format on your drives is not supported by the phone, you may need to format it to the requisite format. Ensure that you have backed up all your important data before doing so.
Your phone will work both as a host and a peripheral device by the virtue of the USB OTG functionality. You can connect USB mouse or a keyboard to your device and use with it. You may also add gaming controllers.
Please note that the OTG cable does not come as part of the standard sales package. You will need to purchase it as a separate accessory. Kindly ensure the compatibility of the cable with your Lenovo Vibe K5.

Yes, Lenovo Vibe K5 supports OTG cable and you can connect your external devices directly to your smartphone and use it. Make sure to check the file format and support for both the device and external drive.
You need to buy the OTG cable separately, as that will not be coming along with the phone. Make sure to buy the standard one rather than going for cheaper.
