I really want to control my Android phone with a touchpad. But I don't have a bluetooth keyboard with touchpad. Is it possible to use one Android phone as a touchpad for another Android phone? If so, please explain how to do it.

(I want to see a mouse pointer on my main screen and control it by moving the fingers on the screen of the Android phone used as touchpad).

  • @Izzy I suspect there's a downvote reason for "intention too weird". – iBug Dec 31 '17 at 17:26
  • @iBug not if you think about it. If you've got your finger on the display, you can't look through the finger. There are some use-cases where an external touchpad comes in handy. But you might be right that someone thought differently – which is why I asked to state the reason. Except for very obvious cases (e.g. completely off-topic wall-of-text with gibberish) it's always a good idea to leave a comment. If it's a good reason, OP can learn from it. – Izzy Dec 31 '17 at 17:30
  • @Izzy And we may soon face questions like How can I use one Android phone as a joystick/control panel/remote control/external storage/extended battery/camera/microphone/light sensor/proximity detector/ for another Android phone? – iBug Dec 31 '17 at 17:31

    Does your phone have OTG support? You can connect a standard mouse using OTG cable. This may be the easiest option here. – Firelord Dec 31 '17 at 17:55
