The Bottom Line
With the help of File Explorer or Photos, you may find there is no need to apply a third-party data transfer tool. Personally, that is not completely right. No one will deny their convenience. But you should know that they only help to transfer photos and videos from your iPhone to the PC. That means you can't transfer videos from a PC to an iPhone or share other types of files between these devices using File Explorer or Photos.
Given that, if you only want to copy iPhone videos to Windows 10, using either of them is advisable. While if you want to do more, using a tool like EaseUS MobiMover will fulfill your needs better. As for iCloud, feel free to choose it according to your situation.
