Can anyone confirm activation by using a USB C male to USB A female OTG adapter inserted at the bottom of the Osmo Pocket connected to a USB Micro plug android phone.  There's been some posts on the Internet that this can be done.  But, I'd like confirmation through this/DJI forum, that it can be accomplished.  And, if it can be activated this way, can you also use the Mimo app to manipulate the Osmo  Pocket's functions on the android phone?

Hi!

I'm using the Osmo Pocket with Android phones (tried on Samsung S8 and Huawei P20). Is there any way to deny to charge the phone from the Pocket? This is not a good idea to charge the phone with the Pocket tiny (about 800mAh) battery. When I connect the Pocket to the phone it is starts to charge the phone, and I can't change the USB setting on the phone to reverse charge because it is jump back to charge the phone.

Please do let me know if you find a solution.  I'm also on the S8 and have the same experience...defaults to charging the phone from the camera.  I have yet to find an option to set the USB setting once the camera is plugged in.

Hi DJI Mindy, Miche has just activated her Osmo Pocket using her Samsung Galaxy S7 using the adaptor that comes with the Mavic Air charging cable.

So guys there is a workaround until DJI can come up with a compatible adaptor

Thanks for sharing, glad to know it works, but the APP compatibility be not be fully ensured, hope there will be no issue.

Hi pompi, I understand your concern, this situation only persists in Android mobile phone, this is decided by the Android's AOA protocol and the communication protocol of the phone adapters.
You can use the Wireless Module for longer operating time, sorry for the inconvenience caused.

I got mine today too. It's awesome. And I agree another person I don't remember his nick about the hole on the case to see the charging light.

Another question for Mindy. Spanish language is not included, the 3rd language in the world, spoken by many millions in the world and it's not on the device on 2018. Will it be soon after an update, please?

Hi algogoku, glad to know you have received Osmo Pocket, Spanish is not available, your suggestion of the language and the small hole in the case to check the charging light will be forwarded to our engineers,  enjoy filming.

I tried to connect USBC to my Mac using a USB C to USB C cable and the funny part is it's getting charged but I cant access my pictures / videos.
So have to use a stupid micro sd adpater all the time. If I connect it to my PC I can access the data. ODD!

Hi DJI Mindy, it works, but like I said, is just a 'workaround' and not a long term solution, but will allow users with micro connectors to activate the pocket Osmo.

DJI will need to provide additional adaptors for devices running micro connectors. OS and type C adaptors will not work for the majority of android users. Micro adaptor next in the store please.

It was good idea to put a charging port on the bottom of the case, but you should had made a small hole in the case so we can see the charging light. When I first got the Osmo Pocket, I charged it in the case, but I ended up charging it out of the case because I couldn't see the charging light when it was in the case. So I couldn't tell when it was finished charging. Charging the Osmo Pocket out of the case makes it vulnerable. I may have to get a hole punch and make a hole in the case so I can see the light. One more nit pick, you should have named it the Pocket Osmo instead of the other way around.

I think the design is very good. To check the charging stage, you only need to open the clip of the case, you don't nee to take it out...

Too bad that none of the accessories are currently available.  Some substitutes can be 3d printed.  I found a tripod mount and a base on thingiverse.com.

Just received my Pocket today. Still learning operation. Notice one thing though. I found a third party holder for iPhone attachment to the Pocket. Seems to me that if you use the lightening connector it will break or malfunction. Need a way to stabilize the phone to the Pocket.

DJI Mindy, there is an idea, it will sound strange, maybe not particularly interesting, as well as with a complex implementation. Add presets for PRO mode. Picture settings for dawn, morning, day, evening, foggy weather, cloudy, night without lighting, night with lighting. People would be easier to adjust to the situation when shooting.

There's a sort of way of doing this.
Use the OP into the phone and make the pro adjustments, then pull out the OP from the phone. Pro setting stay until you want to change modes.

Thanks Mindy, but it seems to me that if the issue was purely with the Android AOA protocol, then connecting to the base of the Osmo via USB-C cable would generate the same issue.  It does not.  To the contrary, using a cable to access the lower charge port of the Osmo to connect to my Galaxy S8 renders full functionality of the Mimo app.  Can you please clarify your position with regards to the function of the Osmo Pocket.  Thanks.

Not only the AOA protocol, but also the phone adapters, I'm afraid we are unable to optimize it temporarily, if there is any update in the future, we will release in the release notes.

To be clear, when you say phone adapters, you are referring to the usb-c device that DJI shipped with the camera, not something on my phone? I'm still trying to gauge whether a potential solution exists for my current equipment or any future devices that I may purchase. I know that this may be resolved with the Bluetooth adapter, but given that that device is still not released has me troubled. Thanks for your time in helping me understand.
