  • 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.

    You can read about the USB OTG specification details here :

  • 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.

    Live....and Let Live!

  • 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.

  • Yes, Lenovo Vibe K5 does supports the OTG cable connectivity, The users may feel free to connect their external pendrives to their Lenovo Vibe K5 using an USB OTG cable and explore the data on their pendrives to their Lenovo Vibe K5 smartphone.


    I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.

  • As per the detailed review, Lenovo Vibe K5 will support USB OTG support. This allows you to support some of the peripherals like Pendrive, mouse and Keyboard. In the test results, this device can be accessed by OTG support. If you connect your Pendrive with the OTG, you can access your files from your device through file manager. While purchasing the mobile, the manufacturing unit won't be providing the OTG cable. So the users need to buy the OTG cable from the market.
