That is probably about your phone settings. I had the same issue at first.

I had to change the USB settings on my Android phone from "Charge Only" 
to "PTP connexion" (Translated from French so terms may differ) to be 
able to transfer photos to the PC.

Then Konqueror can see the device (the phone) and its contents.

Note: my android phone is old...
