Words in the End:
The above are the five powerful methods we listed for you to connect Android phone to laptop without cable so that you can complete the photos transfer from Android to PC without USB.
Using Bluetooth is the oldest method, but its transfer speed is very slow. And the two devices must be placed closely with each other. Both Google Drive and email must rely on a stable WiFi network, otherwise the transmission speed will make you crazy. Also, Google Drive only provides 15GB of free storage space, and email also has strict requirements for the size of attachments. Therefore, these three methods are only suitable for a small amount of file transfer. ShareIt is an excellent transfer app, but it is cumbersome to use. You need to download and install the app on both devices at the same time.
In the end, we recommend MobiKin Assistant for Android, which has a fast transfer speed, no restrictions on the size of the file to be transferred, and is easy to use. It is the most ideal tool for transferring photos from phone to laptop without USB.
