WiFi Direct, quickly transfer files between Android phones

We have smart phones, we have internet, we have Bluetooth, but there's no way to transfer files between two phones at high speed. Bluetooth, speed is too low. Through the internet, we are limited by the bandwidth provider. The solution would be to connect directly to phones. Fortunately there is WiFi Direct, which together with the application not throw Super Beam files from one phone to another speed WI-FI.
Wi-Fi Direct is a protocol that allows devices to connect with each other directly, without requiring a router.

WiFi Direct, quickly transfer files between Android phones

How to transfer files directly from one phone to another android?
1. Connect phones with WiFi Direct (as in the tutorial).
2. Install the mobile app Super Beam in Play Store.
3. Open the application and go to "files and folders"
4. Find the file you want to send / select and press the blue button below.
5. Put phones back-to-back and confirm sending or scan the screen, with your destination file.

What is the speed of transfer?
Transfer speed depends on the speed you can reach your wireless network card. On most modern phones with standard AC 802.11, 433 speed can be Mbps (55 MB / s) or greater, that if both phones have AC.
In my case only 40-speed 42Mbps because the phone was receiving was a Nexus4 that being older does not have a very fast network card.

  4. A crap tutorial via bluetooth is simpler and faster, you don't need additional programs, you don't have to turn off wireless overall, it's not worth "direct wifi", but it's not directly made to be complicated and I can't force friends to download super bim ala, so I'm still on bluetooth.

    • Good luck with 1-2 GB via Bluetooth!

    • Daniel if you do not go Hulk as you try and explain how to be simple is not Christ's fault. and you do not need connection with WFI WFI when transferring directly. I transferred to the speed of 24 mb / s through a file wfi mb in 6 3 seconds. by blutooth take 2 3 minutes transferu. Now you can have even greater speed through direct WFI WFI depends on how it's plaque.

    • You're worse than moonless night. No apple bone!

  5. Very good this method for transferring large files, small files via Bluetooth is still simpler.

    What are grumpy! On this website you can find tutorials from the simplest to the most advanced. Now everyone depends on the level of IT that needs! Although I consider myself advanced in IT, more and take a look here for updates. Let the man to publish what he wants, it's his website, and end with whining.

  8. what large files are transferred from one phone to another? apart from 2, 5 pictures, 1, 2 songs… ..
    I didn't need to transfer anything so big, nor do I have "big" files.
    if I transfer from my desktop or laptop more, I use anysend on my phone. pictures, pdf, a song….
    the method presented in the tutorial I think is most suitable for offline transfer (without internet, router…) when they are not found via Bluetooth as there are still cases.

    • you're right man to transfer some pictures and music and a small video no need for "direct wifi" is enough and bluetooth to share with friends, to put on the pc pictures or video made with the phone use data cable not wifi direct

      for Christ, you need to transer so large amounts of data through WiFi directly 2gb data (photos, music, video and documents) between phones, do you understand?

      • For your information, today most have phones that shoots Full HD, thou hast ever once asked to check how a movie deal 5 minutes of Full HD? Of course not, if you have a S5 and shoot with maximum clarity, 5 minutes is about 1Gb. And pictures already 5-10 Mb deal today, if I have to send 20 what? Stay 3 hours?

  13. I have an opinion, just an opinion! I'm new here and new to the computer…
    I want to say my opinion, and I hope not to be upset, that I don't like Daniel's "specialist" intervention, especially his tone and wickedness in expression. The intervention is vicious and I don't see why !? Cristi is a generous, altruistic person, because his blog is indispensable for beginners interested in perfecting themselves….

  14. good evening ,

    I'm looking for a free application for android phone for network printing.

    many thanks

  15. Thanks for the tutorial Cristi did not know this method; I think everyone should watch what he wants, and he wants to accept that; Free after we benefit from some updates without needing to search us being busy with daily life (work, family) we start criticizing style so mischievous and pointless; Who does not want, does not like or is it too good to be remembered and ready; if we say something is wrong, but civilized and not upset anyone; and yes wait a tutorial and windows, use wi file transfer but has limits in speed and size (free version); Thank you again.

    Hello ! I have a problem.
    Recently I bought an asus zenfone 2 laser phone (ze500kl) someone called me and told me that he had "network busy", although I was not talking on the phone, I had a full signal, but the second time it worked. The problem is that it did not happen once, but several times…. sometimes it works first, sometimes it doesn't. I don't know where the problem comes from: from the network (card) or from the phone? I am waiting for an answer ! Please ! I want to mention that I am on telekom, and I bought the phone from the black friday emag.

I limit myself to two possibilities, either to transfer them directly (if possible) from one phone to another, or to copy them from the "internal memory" on the sd card ”Or, if you can suggest something else..thanks in advance, I wish you a quiet day
