As with the advancement in the OS and interface of the phone, transfer of the file has become the most important part between phone and other device. We will discuss about some tips for the transfer of the data in simple terms, but this is not possible as different Smartphones uses different ways to transfer. Android, iPhone, and Windows Phone all have their own ways to send files and they don’t like talking to each other.


NFC technology was introduced in the file transfer process application, so any Android phone operating 4.1 or later with NFC enabled can send the files with the help of Android beam. NFC chip is installed in the Smartphone and with the help of this chip transfer is done. If you are sending data like pictures and videos then this is handled smoothly by NFC but to send the data like files and other data it is still not available with NFC, so there is a limitation in this application that you cannot send every file.

Major issue with this NFC is of compatibility as iPhones do not posses NFC hardware and Windows and BlackBerry phones have NFC enabled but the problem is that Android beam cannot communicate with those devices.
