NFC and Wifi direct not working

I haver tried nfs and wifi direct on my z3.

 

But today decided to try the with my brothers samsung galaxy s4.

 

The problems:

 

I can send files via nfc to s4 but s4 isnt able to send anything to me via nfs. Pretty strange!!

If we force again and again, only google play store opens automatically.

 

We enabled wifi direct on both our phones and it showed connected as well.

But whenever we try to share anything it says "Sending failed" after a while on his S4.

 

And on my phone it does nothing at all even though it still shows connected in Wifi direct settings menu.

 

What I tried is using File commander, select file, send via wifi direct, the s4 shows as connected and when I click on it nothing happens at all!!

 

Then whats the use of Wifi direct on Z3???

Re: NFC and Wifi direct not working

The issue here seems to be the S4, I was able to transfer files between Z and Z1 and Z1 with a Z3, I had hit and miss with Xperias and samsung but not with Xperias and other Androids.

Re: NFC and Wifi direct not working

So this is definitely an issue with the Z3 or is it the other device? Have you gone to Samsung to complain?

I managed NFC with S4 but like others complaint, wifi direct isnt working at all.

I'm **bleep** sure nothings wrong with my z3.

You should post on Samsung's forum and see what they say

Re: NFC and Wifi direct not working

Have same Problem with Z2 and Galaxy S3.

 

If i send a file to my S3 it works, but from S3 to Z2 not. It opens a window with text inside: Source not available.

 

Its a difference between S-Beam and Android-Beam, that the system cant work with no Samsung branded Smartphones.

Re: NFC and Wifi direct not working

I have the same problem of sharing my files from my Z3C to note 8...the only solution is to use DLNA that works perfectly
