Best way to transfer files?
As a AndroidNewbie, I was wondering; what is the best way to transfer files (music etc) to the Note 3?
Samsung seems to have its own program, Kies, but when I had my Nokia N8, I never used the Nokia's program as it was TERRIBLE, is this the case with Kies too?
I tought I'll ask you this, before I get the phone.

The best way to transfer files (for me, personally) is a wired connection. Much more faster transfer rates and reliable connection especially if it is USB3.0 and you have a USB3.0 port.
Heck if Samsung gave me USB to Ethernet connectivity, I'd be jumping all over it. I do not like Wi-Fi and have most of my network hardwired. The only advantage Wi-Fi has is convenience, that's it.
One would only download and install KIES to get the proper drivers installed on the PC/notebook. Even though it uses MTP, you can still access it as a device/camera and move files simply by drag and drop. You do not need to have KIES running/open to do this.

You could opt to use a micro SD card adapter which you can just put into your computer>locate the drive letter for it and copy/paste back & forth. If you're not too savvy with removing the back cover and micro sd card, have someone show you and it becomes an easy to do task.
