I currently use the Local send app to send files wirelessly between devices.

Its max speed is ~3.5mbps when sending on a 2.4ghz wifi mode and ~5mbps on 5ghz. If I turn off encryption it can reach 10-26mbps of transfer speeds with 5ghz wifi.

Is there a faster way aside from usb data cable transfer?

I have tried nearby share and found it unreliable and slower. Total commander wifi transfer is not functional on android 13.

Files I transfer can be a gig in size.

    Interesting. I’m using Syncthing to transfer between my Pixel and my desktop. I’m seeing 20-30MB/s or 150-300Mbps. That’s more or less the throughput of my WiFi setup. It maxes out at 400Mbps.

      Thanks for the suggestion. I checked and was getting somewhere around 20-40MB/s with current devices. Localsend was more straightforward and with hacks could send at similar speeds.
