Re:how do I transfer files, especially video, to an external usb-c thumb drive?

2020-05-22, 2:50 AM

Thanks Motorola Tom...  I think that other data transfer options besides the USB port need to be explored.  Maybe ask these too?


  1. Wifi transfer via local LAN.  What is the maximum throughput for large file transfers that the phone is capable of transmitting via wifi?


2. Transfer to internal MicroSD card and then use that to transfer to computer.... Biggest issue here is that you will probably eventually break the tray or screw up the contacts inside the phone if you pull this tray in and out too much......  What is the maximum speed of sustained transfer the phone can do to a MicroSD card?

Hi PatrickRio,


I apologize for the wait. We just got an update on this. Our testing with SanDisk and Samsung 32GB U3 SDR50/SDR104 Cards = WRITE: 36MB/s (Avg) w/Max 55MB/s, READ: 58MB/s (AVG) w/Max 75MB/s. Note that this is dependent on user's SD Card.


As for the WiFi, the phone supports WiFi 2.4G/5G (802.11ac), so maximum WiFi throughput is 433MB/s.


Let us know if that helps. Thanks.


Best regards,
Motorola-Lenovo Support
