External harddrive for mobile phone

Recommended Posts

Hi all.. I don't have a PC or laptop etc and the memory on my mobile is getting full.. instead of buying another memory card.. is it possible to connect a mobile phone to an portable harddrive etc?

Just so I can save/share my pics.. videos etc.. and so I don't have to keep swapping cards.. I've got thousands of pics (grandkids) and was kinda thinking that if I had them all on one drive etc I could not only free space on my phone but also just connect and browse my pics etc when I want.. any advice ?? Recommendations ??

if your using either an iphone or an android phone then just let them sync with the cloud and you can delete the originals from your device.

It's really a bad idea to keep them on the phone..

 

plug it into your computer or laptop every so often, and copy them over, and also make sure to have a regular backup of the files from your computer also...

 

as for the original question, yes, to an extent, you CAN connect an android or iPhone to an external HDD, but compatibility would be down to your specific device and android/iOS version....
