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.
