I have the same problem with my LTE Galaxy S5 G900F !! Speed is about 40-45 KB/S !! while my Nokia n95 or Samsung GT s6312 Speed
was about 100 KB/s ! I'm so confused too ! I understand you... For such a modern smartphone, it's too weird !

I think WiFi direct is faster, maybe give it a try?

Try the Superbeam app in the playstore. It uses wi-fi direct and I've gotten transfer speeds > 40MBs. I think you need the paid version ($1.99) to transfer to pc.
