From at least Android 4.0 to at least Android 8.0 (most likely Pie as well) we are forced by Google-Microsoft trust into using MTP as the only (?) files transportation method between Android-based device and Windows-based computer (if not count as pity, sad and dully methods as attaching files to e-mail messages).
For at least five years billions of users around the world are forced into using solution that is:
- extremely slow (transferring large files collections or huge files takes hours even on USB 3.1),
- extremely unreliable (device can stop responding even after sending just a few files),
- not working at all most of the time (device that stoped working may not "restart" and may not allow you to copy files even after dozens of unplug cable-plug it again sequences).
(I can see above message after each and every file that I copy; I have to unplug and plug the USB cable again after copying each single file)
- Supporting, OT and philosophic one: What am I missing? Why we are forced into using this madness? Why nothing had been done for five years to resolve it?
- Main and real one: Is there any other way? Any fast, reliable method of transferring files from Android-based device to Windows-based PC?
Described problem was tested on Windows 7 and Android 8.0, so not the newest ones, but still very widely used. And on the quite modern phone -- Motorola Moto Z2 Play -- but of course happnes on dozen other Android-based devices that I own and billions of Android-based devices other uses.
And, as stated in links given in first sentence, absolutely nothing had been done into resolving this problem for at least five past years. Is this some kind of sadistic way of understanding market and treating its customers, developed by Microsoft and Google or what?
