Is the any difference between using USB (Type-A to Type-C) VS (Type-C to Type-C) for data transfer?

If I wanted to transfer videos from my phone to a laptop, would there be any difference in speed between to the two different types of connections?

Update:

Is THERE* any difference

    Depends if the Type-A device you're plugging into has USB 3.1. If it does, the speeds will be the same. If it doesn't, the USB-C to USB-C will be faster.

    Type A and Type C are connector standards, not speeds. While most USB-C devices and ports are USB 3.1, this is not always the case. If both the type A and type C ports are 3.1, there would be no difference in speed. Most laptops have at least one Type A USB 2.0 port, so make sure you are using the right one.

    not for phone transfers. in the future, C will be better, but right now it is just overkill.

    the important thing is that you use a USB 3.1 port on your PC.

    As long as you choose a type A USB 3.1 port the transfer rates are similar, USB 3.0, USB2 are slower than USB C, if you have a choice go for USB C

      type A B or C makes no difference, it is the underlying USB protocol that controls the speed. USB 3.1 through regular Type A is just as fast as through type C, just a different connector. If you connect a type C to a USB 2.0 it will go at USB 2 speed every time.

    If you try to transfer from type A to type C the files will go into hyperdrive and explode, killing everyone in a 5 mile radius.
