Yeah that sort of thing. I didn't know you could do that with a phone. I could buy a $10 cable and copy the images to a portable hard drive. Does the S4 have enough power to spin up a 750GB USB3 hard drive?

I've not tested with a spinning disk but from what I've read online no they don't have the juice to power one.
If you used a powered usb hub then you'd get around that issue though.

I personally use a Vosonic VP8870 but not sure if they're still available. Had it for 5 years and works a treat with a 500GB HDD in. Travelled all over the world with it and will be taking it to Namibia this year.

An alternative is this...

or this...

Hyperdrive is the sort of thing I mean. I ended up ordering the one I mentioned above that has memory card slots and Wifi, and I'll take a portable USB disk too. Not as easy, but cheaper.

I'll report back in a few weeks when I've tried it out.
