Since 2015, more and more phones began to adopt type-c interfaces. However, not all people understand other function than the "free insertion" of the type-c interface. In fact, it can do many other things.
External USB deviceMost phones with type-c interface can connect the mouse and keyboard simply by plugging in a type-c docking station. People who like to play games can experience computer-like game operation on their mobile phones. If you want to use excel, word, and other office applications on your phone, you can do things more efficiently and move around with a mouse and keyboard.
In addition, USB flash drives can be connected via docking ports, which are the saviour of the mobile phone's lack of memory. Photos and video are very space-intensive files that can be stored on a usb flash drive. After the phone is connected to the usb flash drive, it can be opened and viewed directly without occupying the space of the phone.
Cell phones are getting better performance at taking pictures, but they still lag far behind SLR cameras. In daily life, mobile phone shooting is enough, but maybe not enough for people when traveling and working. When out, without a computer, photos taken by the camera can transferred to the phone and posted on social networks via the type-c interface on the phone implemented through OTG reader.
Connected wired networkFor phones with type-c interfaces, you can do this! Simply use the type-c transfer network card interface to connect the phone to the network cable, watch TV movies or play games. Please be noted that not all type-c phones can use this method to connect to network cables.
Cast screen mobile phoneTake huawei's Mate 10 for example. It can be connected to the projector in less than 10 seconds via the type-c HDMI cable. It's very powerful. Whether or not you need to connect to a projector when you're out at work, families want to connect their TV monitor to a large screen to watch movies, and the type-c interface is a great way to do that.
However, due to the limitations of mobile phone configuration, not all mobile phones with type-c interface can quickly transfer HDMI cable through type-c.
The type-c interface is so convenient that it was only a matter of time before it became mainstream. However, it is still a state where the Micro USB interface coexists with the type-c interface. Unfortunately, chargers cannot be Shared.
