The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)
A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

I am only able to speak for Apple. Here we go: Example is using an iPhone 5S as that is what I have.
Using the iPhone lightning connection port:
Then the actual lightning cable:
You would then need to have a Seagate Backup Plus Slim Portable Hard Drive
Next step using the iPhone 5S the Apple App store, the Seagate Moble Backup app installed (free)
This way, the male USB from the lightning cable can connect to the Seagate external hard drive and you're good to go!
I own a Western Digital external hard drive, it has a male USB..unfortunately. Even if it had a femal USB connector it would not be compatible with the iPhone.
No doubt the same pairing would take place with any other phone; start with the phone, connectors and work backwards to the external hard drive.

Thanks for that, I have an IPhone 5S also!
The link you gave me for that particular Seagate Drive had some seriously negative feedback against it, I currently posess a Samsung hx-m101tcb/g driver so I am guessing I would have to transfer over whatever I have stored on this device:
Is their other options available other than the one you mentioned?

AFAIK...Apple has their "exact fruit" pairing! In other words, for your iPhonee 5S..this particular Seagate external drive is their spec.
Not knowing where you live, if you have an Apple store close, go inside to the Genius Bar and stretch the options, I'd certainly give it a go!
In that I don't have an Android phone, I am not able to make any suggestioins there.
Perhaps other members who do not have an Apple phone can assist you further!
