A number of Android File Managers these days (Amaze comes to mind) include a toggle option to turn your phone into an FTP Server. You would then just pull it up on your computer via ftp://192.168.X.X and put an optional user/pass over it. I've used that for many years if I need to quickly transfer some documents or songs between devices.

Not technically internet so much as intranet.

And on the flipside, I've used AndFTP to connect to my laptop from Android 2.0 through 8.1 - it supports sftp and a few other protocols.

This is my preferred method. I use SolidExplorer to start the ftp server and use an alias to access via lftp.
