Wired connections are the most reliable method, and they’re often the fastest too. But it isn’t 100% seamless given the need to plug things in. Meanwhile, email-based sharing is pretty painless for documents and a few photos but can be extremely slow for large files.

There are other wireless-based sharing methods though, such as Nearby Share, Microsoft’s Link to Windows feature, Pushbullet, FTP functionality, and more. But some of these methods require either a Chromebook (Nearby Share) or a specific phone brand (Link to Windows).
