Are you on Android 7? Older Android versions do NOT have the move function.
I'm on Android 8, ran into this issue last night.

Strange, works fine for me on Android 8. Did you try to move files between different volumes, e.g. from internal /storage/emulated/0 to sd-card or USB-stick (/storage/1234-5678)? This will always be slow because it requires copy+delete operations.

Woops, missed the reply. This was moving on the same volume (micro SD).

I'm using a Galaxy S7, maybe Samsung changed something that keeps this slow?
