I don't know if this is due to a firmware update, but my Huawei P10 Plus Android phone (stock-standard with no rooting!), has recently started popping an option screen when I plug in the cable to connect it to the RC Controller (I'm using the USB-A connector in the base). When I open DJI Go4 and plug in my controller - a half-screen pop-up gives me three "Use USB for" options as a separate window overlaying the Go4 app. These options are:
Transfer Photos
Transfer Files
Charge only

'Charge only' is the default - but If I select 'Transfer Files' - then the phone just doesn't charge the controller ... Simple as that!

Not 100% sure why that appears, except that when I look at Settings / System / Developer Options ... I have - 'Always prompt when connecting to USB' - selected to ON, in the 'DEBUGGING' section. I guess this must be it, because when I turn that switch off, I no longer get the pop-up!

I'm surprised the Chinese have not come up with an affordable data only cable----USB A on one end and micro usb/usb c/lightning connector on the other.
