NFC not working transferring pictures...
« on: December 20, 2012, 06:08:41 PM »
I have a Nexus 4 and a Nexus 7 but I can't get NFC to transfer pictures from one to the other, I tried it with my N7 16GB and 32GB before selling the 16 but with the N4 and N7 is not working?
Once turned NFC and Android Beam on, both on the N4 and N7, I choose a picture from the gallery on either device and place then back to back and nothing happens...

Anybody successfully done this with a N4 and N7? Is it me? An I doing something wrong or do I have faulty hardware?

Yup, I did it Jay.  Both devices back-to-back and you hear a weird sound, then it says 'touch to beam', so you tap the pic, etc. and then on the other device it says 'incoming beam' and presto; it appears! Using the stock gallery on the 4 and 7.

I have just tried NFC between my Nexus 4&10 but very hit and miss.

Always worked with my S3 and Nexus 7.

I'll try it again at some point but have tried half a dozen times and zero success rate so far...

I've got it working but had to move the N4 around to get a connection...

Yeah, finally got it to work myself.

As you say, had to move the Nexus 4 around a bit for it to connect to my Nexus 10.

How do you transfer a file though? What app is better to use? Does seem to work in ES FILE EXPLORER.

As far as I'm aware NFC transfer only supports photos, contacts and You Tube videos...

Google Maps, web pages...

I found the NFC to be touchy myself.
