In terms of speed, convenience, reliability and the benefit of minimal terminal typing, Yoda's ("standard way") isn't even close to MTP between the PinePhone and another computer. Sure--SSH / sftp can work, as can the less reliable samba, but they are all a pain compared to just plugging-in a USB cable and immediately using a graphical file manager (like Nemo on my PinePhone and Thunar on my MX-Linux laptop). Having to do anything on a terminal on the PinePhone is a pain--even a simple "ifconfig" or "ping"!

nmbd isn't reliable (and it's slow to detect) so connections are slow and iffy without discovering the other machine's IP address (which isn't always the same over USB, in my experience) and then manually typing in an IP instead of the unrecognized hostname,...etc. makes it even more slow. dnsmasq is a pain to setup as is samba, even at the best of times.

It's not even close. Once I get MTP running again, I'll race ya'! Ha--I would probably win even rebooting to Jumpdrive.

In any case, the beauty of Linux used to be that users get to decide what's best for themselves. It's so "Microsoft" for a dev to think they know so much better than the users that devs now often feel compelled to put up roadblocks to keep users from using their machines as they wish.
