The Android release on this phone is 4.4, not 4.2 as shown in the specs

Will the phone recognize an external usb flash drive to read and write files to the drive?? I ask this question as there does not appear to be any way to expand the 16gb of internal Flash memory!
When the phone was first released you could access USB storage using an OTG cable. That capability was lost with the 4.4 update. However, there is an app or two that allows you to access files on USB storage.

See https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.homeysoft.nexususb.importer

The only issue is that you can't access the storage from other apps. So, if you're looking to play music from external, you'd have to use the app to move some media on, after deleting other from storage - pretty kludgy.

Maybe this was an unintentional bug and support will come back with another OTA? At this point, we don't know.
