Default Galaxy S4 OTG

Well I had seen a few people asking if the S4 supports OTG and this video shows it does.....





I was a little concerned regarding this as well as the Nexus 10 running android 4.2.2 doesn't !

Here's the link if the embedded video doesn't work for you - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFGUmDqRKHE&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Can you use regular formatted USB Flash Drives? What file systems are supported? NTFS?

NTFS is not supported by Android by default. It can be used with root. If you have a FAT32 formatted USB stick it will be suppported without any issues.

The Nexus devices are trying to corral people into the cloud, so do not have the function by design. Samsung wants the customer to have the options for this device. They do not have preconceptions they know what is "best" for the customer.

Even though I really liked nexus 7 that I bought for my nephew recently, I would not replace my Note 10.1 with it.
