How to transfer files from smartphone to computer quickly

If you're looking for a quick and easy way to transfer files from your smartphone to your home computer, the simplest solution is the USB flash drive

Most users no longer use them and have replaced them with the most modern cloud storage services. We are talking about USB flash drives, the most used device up to five years ago to transfer files from one computer to another and to have always with you the documents useful for work.

Although they have been replaced by cloud storage services such as Google Drive or Dropbox, there are still many users who use a pendrive to exchange files with their friends or to transfer heavy data from one computer to another. Wireless systems are definitely safer and more convenient to use, but the pendrive allows the transfer of documents even in offline mode. Besides, it seems strange to say, but USB devices are the best way to transfer wire, photos and documents from your smartphone to your home computer, without having to waste time with faulty Wi-Fi networks.

How to use USB On the Go

Many Android smartphones support USB On the GO (USB OTG), a special specification that allows devices to communicate with external HDDs, pendrives, keyboards and mice. By connecting an external hard drive to your smartphone you can transfer files from one device to another in no time, without any kind of problem. Although it may seem like an "old" method, the dear old USB stick is still one of the most reliable methods. Even when it comes to smartphones.
