Once you have it and you are having latest android smartphone then that’s it you are ready to connect USB storage devices or dongle to your android phone like below.
(By latest smartphone I mean smartphones like Sony Xperia C, Moto G, Xiaomi Mi3, Samsung Note or any other smartphone which is having latest android version as some of the android with older version requires your device to be rooted and also you require an app to get USB detected).
Once you connect USB to android using OTG cable you will able to see the message “USB device connected…” like one in the above image. Then you can transfer files between android and USB from any file manager.
I have tested this with my Xperia C and Mi3,Moto G and Samsung Grand 2.
If still you are not able to get USB detected then you can try installing StickMap from Google Play.
