Use NFC to send files to your contacts.
There are plenty of ways to transfer files from one device to another, but none are as quick and easy as the Near Field Communication (NFC).
The Galaxy running Android 4.0, that is, the Ice Cream Sandwich, and luckily have the ability to run Android Beam. This function automatically sets the NFC connection for the user only has to select the file you want to send and the recipient.
Unfortunately, in older devices, Android Beam is not available, and the NFC connection is harder to set up and use, and is usually not 100% compatible. If this is your case, and you want NFC on your phone, it is best to download the app File Expert.
In this tutorial we will teach you how to set Android Beam, and the first thing you have to do to sign up and start sharing files. We also show the File Expert application, highlighting its various menus and you need to establish a connection quick NFC.

To start sharing files and contacts with other NFC devices, marks the NFC Eyelashes. Once enabled, Android Beam option opens beneath her.

If you know nothing of NFC, be sure to read the instructions. Although it is a simple process can be a bit confusing at first. Then put in “On” the top right option.
4 – Prepare the other Galaxy
Repeat the steps with the second phone. When ready put the two phones “back to back” to vibrate or hear a click sound.
5 – Save the file
Keep your phones together until you see the Touch Screen to Beam in each. Touch screen terminal that has the file to pass to another.
