You should be able to connect a small usb hub to your s8. Then transfer from your memory cards directly to your external storage.

Sounds interesting, any recommendations for reliable hub?

I should note that this is mainly a more convenient process, it can still be slow. Ideally devices like the WD Wireless Pro which can automatically perform unattended incremental backups are best.

I believe I have this tiny one that I use with my S10 and Tab S4.

I also have used USB c multiport devices that have built in card readers along with USB ports.

Im aware of products like the WD wireless, but i'd rather have something more simple and cheap, as I mostly do backpacking.

I found this on amazon

seem to have pretty good reviews, and have just about the ports I need (SD, micro SD and USB)
