Whenever I connect my Phone to my pc via supplied original Cable to transfer photos to my pc.... it takes loads of time to load. The thumbnails takes ages to load. (Both, Pics in Internal Memory OR on my Superfast Microsd)
BUT, if I use say Card reader everything is extremely fast and normal.

Same thing with my other Samsung phone. So want to ask why this happens and how it can dealt with?

Also, Your phones exhibit same problems ?

NOTE: Want to buy Samsung A80 tht doesn't have MicroSd and scared that while transferring to PC it will take hours to even load on screen.

Isn't the greatest solution, but if you take the photos on your phone and split them into smaller folders (like less than 200 photos) before you transfer them, they should go quicker. I have this issue when im transferring stuff in and out of folders that have a ton of files in then. It seems like it had to reload the folder information after every single picture transfers so it makes it super slow when transferring in bulk

I seem to remember one time when using my phone as a sd card reader, and copied it to the PC, it mbps of transfer speed went way down and even failed a few times, but I just attributed it to something wrong with the PC. When I have moved large files like roms, it seems to go pretty normal. Phones should support USB 3.0.

Well it seems all people are facing similar problems from ages !
I would not buy upcoming Samsung A80 then, coz I really don't want to deal with 5-15 minutes Load time whenever I wana move stuff from my Phone-to-PC.

Will switch to A70 as it has Microsd card slot and there it loads in few seconds for me always.

PS: As above poster, yes it fails to load and hangs too many times in my case. (Win 10 Pro)

Why would Samsung not put an sd card slot on the a80? Seriously, I thought they had learnt their lesson with the note 5.

Maybe give the airdroid app a try.
You just need to install airdroid on your phone.
Start it up.
On the PC point your web browser to the address that airdroid shows you.
Press the allow button on your phone - this allows your PC access to your phone.

You can them upload/download content to/from your phone PC.
Of course your phone and PC need to be using the same network.

Nice will try it later on… BUT, this basic functionality of transfer at ease should be provided by manufacturer by default. its 2019 and still Lags/hangs/Slow just to transfer stuff ?

Dunno about other manufacturers coz never used anything but Samsung yet. So, how's the situation with other phones ?
