Which is the easiest way to access the external SD card of a Pinephone from a PC?
#1
Since I m writing a lot, a appreciated to ability to have all my files on an Android phone on the external SD card. But starting from Android 5.0 it was not possible anymore in an easy way to write to the SD card on Android, nor to access the SD card from a PC.



I went pack to a Samsung Galaxy S5 and Android 4.4, which was the last version of Android which allows an easy way to write to the external SD card.



One of the main reason for me personally to buy a Pinephone would be to have a writing machine with SD card in my pocket, which allows access of the SD card from a PC. SD cards are practical storage devices, which allows easy back up, no need to sync over the Internet etc.



On older Android Phones it was possible to plug in the phone into a PC, and it was a storage drive. But from Android 5.0 it was not possible anymore. I did not even manage to get access to the files on my phone over a wifi network.




All these options are gone. How is it with the Pinephone? Which is the easiest way to access the external SD card of a Pinephone from a PC?
