Can I connect android phone to arduino using usb? If it can be done how am I supposed to connect them together? My phone doesn't have a big usb port. It only has a small one. I am talking about usb serial btw.

Thanks.

You can use an "USB OTG" cable. Just a few bucks on ebay and works perfect.

Download, install & run "USB Host Diagnostics" from Google Play Store.  This will tell you if OTG works on your phone.

I use OTG to manage my datalogger with my Samsung Galaxy S III.

I checked my phone doesn't support USB OTG. That doesn't come as a surprise to me though.
