Default [Q] Transfer Large Files From PC To Device

sup,

i wanted this device as a media tablet, i currently use plex on ipad to watch media which reqs having a computer on to stream it which isnt ideal. I tried usb and was so slow and then i tried the xperia connect thing which transfer ed one hd movie (7.64gb) in 10mins+ thats far too slow to be useful.

does anyone know of a way to transfer much faster than that, using wifi ideally since my router has 600+ on the 5ghz band?

Download the PC client on your Web browser.
Be aware though. The XZ2 is restricted on its wi-fi download speeds.

Ive actually tried superbeam. It's very buggy and frequently drops connect no matter what I try.

Do you mean with the setting "wifi optimization"? I've unchecked that and get somewhere in the region of 460mbps from the tablet and z2 phone on 5ghz. It seems really odd to me that transfers are so slow, even via USB. It's a brand new device, they should have this crap sorted by now. It seems transfer rates haven't improved at all since android's conception.

Wifi will always suck for large files. It's never going to actually run at the speed it says it can do. Copying to a MicroSD directly using the pc and then putting the MicroSD into the tablet will always be quickest. Don't forget to change the disk policy in Windows to performance or it won't be the best speed.
