Just bought an external USB DAC to my phone. Android is supported, the only thing needed is an On-The-Go cable. In theory at least. Does Xperia E5 support OTG?
I know the DAC works on Z5, and topics there talks about Settings-Devices-USB, but the only option there is to install application for Xperia on my computer. On Z5 there is a setting like "Detect USB device" aso, but not for me.

Well according to the white paper http://dl-developer.sonymobile.com/documentation/whitepapers/Xperia_E5_WP_1.pdf
OTG is not listed as a connectivity option

It is really up to sony devs to enable this officially, you can pitch in your request for this feature by emailing them: Local support
That is if it is not based on hardware specs.

Hi Everyone, as mentioned above - I am sorry to say that there is no official support for the OTG technology. I do not know why such a decision was made during the development process, but I'll make sure to forward your feedback regarding this.
