finally decide to ditch my ol trusty feature phone and get a smartphone
pick a used Nexus 5 because Sheeky Forums says its a great choice for someone new to smartphones
and cheap
set it up, callendars contacts and all. And music
while copying and deleting files I discover bugs here and there with file transfers
files not showing up on PC, stalled transfers, cant even do more than 1 thing at the time. MTP is a buggy mess and so is Android
search for fixes
discover this bug is over 4 FUCKING YEARS OLD and plagues most phones since 4.1 but jewgle doesnt give a shit
the most widely used mobile operating system in the world cant even into usb file transfers with a pc
lagdroid fans are actually ok suggesting bandaids like airdroid, ftp and samba instead of an actual fix
later phone starts shitting itself for no reason, play services using all my data, ram and battery, chrome is a laggy fest and the ui is retarded, material design is a shit
have to revert to CM13, simple and non bloated it just werks but I still cant transfer files from my pc reliably
Why do people defend this piece of shit OS again?
Has anyone here found a fix for the unusable MTP file transfers?
I swear to god im going to get an iphone at this point, back then android was lauded for the freedom it provided to the user, if this freedom comes with half a decade old bugs and half assed features I dont give a shit about freedom anymore.

I have this issue too OP. I hate MTP. I usually just pull my SD card out now and use an adapter. I don't want apple as they're too fucking expensive for a phone so I'll stay Android. And I'll be honest, iTunes isn't much better. Can still be a bitch and a half to get working fully if you only want certain songs. Plus, certain codec support is none existent.

They bother to make their OS simpler to sell to the masses, google wants to fix all the shit on their OS's, but the mobile carriers don't let them because it will remove all the bloatware that they carefully made a contract to put in there.

@Fuzzy_Logic
Even if thats the case google and manufacturers are fucking retarded for taking out the mass storage option knowing mtp is a pile of dogshit beforehand. A friend used to have an old htc with no usable internal storage that he kept updated until 5.0 with custom roms. Never did it give him any problems like this. I know it has something to do with a linux filesystem and android emulating it for the pc, surely putting a trusty fat32 partition in the phone shouldnt be hard to do.

this is why you poor people stay poor. no sense with the little money you have

also i've never had this problem but then again I'm in 2016 and use google drive/dropbox, but yes MTP just isn't as good or smooth as it could be. the rest of the android community moved on and use newer methods, and yes they are better, which is why no one cares about it

also lol, first smartphone and not just using default OS for a while to even learn what you should do to it

Like? Are you just talking out of your ass here? If you think using wireless methods to transfer files is some meme shit that google is "pushing" you're an idiot

@Techpill
they don't care because it's not important. the few users who actually care about usb file transfers and use it regularly deal with MTP or get frustrated and move on to a new service.

then there's the subset of those few users, the chosen few princesses like the OP who feel the need to whine on the internet about it, but they aren't important and putting time into that failed protocol isn't worth it to them

@likme
@Sharpcharm
Let me see if im right, the S5 has both internal and external sd mass storage right? I have no doubts it works properly with the sd but what about the internal one?

@TalkBomber
Wireless methods have existed long before this and afaik googles official alternative is drive, ftp and samba arent theirs theyre just alternatives people are forced to use and were probably availabe in the gingerbread era.

Oh yeah because using a cable to transfer YOUR FILES FROM YOUR COMPUTER is so archaic right, better move to le google cloud and just put up with inane data caps and lack of internal storage because reasons, nobody cares right? thats why samsung didnt back up on its decision of removing external storage, oh wait.

I don't really like them either, especially after realizing how shitty touchwiz is. I'm not going to talk about the obvious facts that it sucks in general and samsung delivers updates quite late.

I updated my phone to 4.4 from 4.1 when I bought it and I realized that they added two shitty non-removable programs called "%100oyun" and "cellograf". The first one is a store program of gameloft and the second one is literally an app of a fucking printing house. A fucking printing house paid samsung money to have their shitty app included in the local version of touchwiz. That made me finally flash CM13.

Their hardware is usually quite good but their software is shitty. If you're going to buy a samsung phone, take your time and learn which ones has good community support. I wouldn't recommend actually using touchwiz to anyone unless voiding the warranty is a problem.

no, read the official description of Sheeky Forums

it specifically takes effort into excluding anime from being a subject of any higher importance

but besides this,
all the founders of Sheeky Forums have grown out of anime.
anime is not really something you can enjoy once you reach a certain level of maturity. and i don't mean that in a condescending way. it's just impossible to give a fuck about subject mater, be it the story, the writing or the drawings.

literally no one who founded Sheeky Forums watches anime anymore

Then why couldn't google force manufactures and make android treat the storage like an sd card?

Call me stupid but it's the little shit like this that makes android a forever shitty os. You'll never have the best of anything and the worst of any os that has ever existed. It's why people would rather use any other operating system than android on a mobile device if they could.

@BinaryMan
Not so much that its difficult but that its non standard for the average person. When I for some reason happen to be in a situation where I need to plug my phone for file transfers in a pc that isnt mine I should not have to bother setting up an ftp connection or installing airdroid on the pc. Standards exist for this. Ask the average person what adb is and watch their confused eyes.

If youre putting the option there either make it work properly or remove it so the actual working option becomes standard.

I dunno about applel but if it works im ok with it then,

Thats exactly what im trying to do but jewgle and its pajeet legions insist I should do things their way.

Search for "not all files showing up mtp", it goes back to 2012, probably a mix of lack of external storage and incompetence from google. Samsung tends to try doing things their own way if they can, they want to move away from google claws and their phones dont have this problem according to anons itt.

Well both have a microsd slot, and the razr m is from the ics era. Dunno what exactly google did but seems something to do with the media database, but samsung fixed it though, I woudlnt be surprised google intentionally avoids fixing it so idiots move to their services. Thats what I get for getting a meme phone for fanboys, oh well.

I have an xperia Z2, and I have never heard about this "bug". If you download files to a directory on your device after you've opened that directory on your pc, you probably need to refresh, but that's it.

gentle please
let me reiterate

there is a difference between watching anime, occasionally. yes, no matter how old you are anime will always be somewhat relevant.

my 83 year old white american grandmother watches anime. she actually enjoys it.

but she certainly will never store any images of anime on her hard drive in any unironic sense. i believe storing more than a few images or videos of anime draws a basic line somewhere. you obvious take anime more seriously when you do this. you think 'deep' anime is extremely original and creative, while mature people see otherwise because their mind is more developed, they are 'smarter' and thus consequentially not as entertained

do you still believe the PS2 system had an amazing library of games?
this is a good way to determine how fucking retarded you are.
if 99% of the library hasnt aged to shit for you by now, then you certainly are an idiot
