Android devices sometimes orient the micro USB connector in different directions or locations. For correct usage the USB port should be located on the bottom, with the widest portion of the port aligned with the back of your smartphone. Many LG and HTC devices orient the connector in the opposite direction, and many devices from Sony and Motorola often position the port on the side. In these cases it is recommended to use a micro USB cable or adapter to allow proper aiming and positioning of the camera.
