    I've got an HTC One M8, and I got a couple of OTG cables to use a controller with it. While the flash drive functionality is nice, I can't seem to get it to work with a controller of any kind. It runs Android 5, no root. I actually can't root it because it can't seem to connect to any computer very well. But all other devices work just fine.

    OTG works on flash drives, keyboards and mice (even on some wireless mice if you plug in the adapter). But it won't work for devices like game controllers, because they need drivers, and the manufacturers (of game controllers and other devices) don't write them for Android. It would cost them another whole software department.

    Anything that doesn't need a driver (or needs one of the kind Android already has, like drives, keyboards, etc.) will work.
