Very Slow Photo Uploads. Any Way To Speed It Up?

Very Slow Photo Uploads. Any Way To Speed It Up?

Good day!

A friend came to me with a Android phone that they want to replace with a new iPhone. I don’t know much about Androids, but I know enough to check if they have photos BEFORE they ditch the phone. Yep, 2500+. Set them up a paid DropBox account and started photo (and contact) uploads days ago. It is at 2427 photos left to upload now. Yep, the local telco internet is slow (very rural here). I have tried sharing my iPhone hotspot instead, still dragging. THIS WAY is gonna take w-e-e-k-s. Any suggestions?

Not a solution for dropbox, but you can use a pendrive on most android phones to move the photos there, and then copy them to a computer and then sync that to the new iphone. That would be a lot faster.
