It is available to transfer files via different tools, for example, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, OTG, and so on. However, not all of them fully support transferring Android large files.

Here, we are introducing NFC, which allows you to transfer both Android large files (videos for example) and small amounts of data such as text messages quickly and easily.

1. Check NFC Support
Before starting the task, you should make sure that both devices support NFC. To check NFC support, please follow steps as below:

When you see the option "NFC", enable it so as to allow data exchange. Then redo the process on another Android device and check NFC support. If you don't see NFC, your Android phone probably isn't equipped with NFC hardware.
