    Default NFC and SBeam question

    I noticed this issue with SBeam...I was never told that there was a limit to the number of files you can send via S Beam so I selected 6 or 7 pics and placed my phone back to back with my wifes S4, it makes the beeping sound...but it doesn't beam...I try 3 or 4 times and nothing....I switch my batteries, same thing.... so I select one pic and it beams away in seconds no problem...go back to send the other 6 pictures and nothing happens...then someone else with an S4 tells me u can only send 5 at a time...I can live with that but it turns out my wifes S4 can send up to 8 pictures via SBeam with no problem. ..anyway my question is do you think its another 4.3 bug? Or do you think it has anything to do with the resolution or megapixels in the picture? Or something else....thanks in advance for any insight.

    Does anyone use S Beam to send files to other galaxy devices?

    I just tried using s beam to send 8 pics from my Note 3 to my husband's note 3 and it worked perfectly. I would have taken a screen shot to show the "success" part but it flashes and goes away too quickly.

    One thing I always forget to do when I try to s beam - is to separate the devices after the vibrate/noise so the pics can transfer cos it won't happen whilst they're back to back.

    For what it's worth we are both Verizon running JB.

    Maybe it's a note 3 to s4 problem? I hope you get it figured out. I like using s beam as its a whole of a lot easier to share photos with my husband.

    Sarks.

    p.s if the note 8 tablet has s beam (its not mine its my husband's) I'll give that ago in the morning, and I'll let you know the results.

    When my wife upgraded from s4 to note 3, she sbeamed over 300 photos, then a couple hundred songs to transfer back to her S4. . . no problems and only 2 beams and I had the note3.

    Yes, and I've noticed some issues sometimes sending to an S4 (which didn't happen with my S3 sending to/from the S4). Sometimes it just fails. Rebooting the phones tend to remedy it. Wonder if it's due to something else (like the Wi-Fi in the Note), because NFC Connects and Registers just fine. I haven't tried BT (Android Beam/S Beam off) because I doubt these phones retained the BT +HS that was in earlier Galaxy S devices, and transferring a 500MB video over BT EDR would take forever. I won't even try that.

    I don't have an s4 or know anyone with an s4,so can't test. Most everyone I know on Samsung is using the note series.

    My wife refuses to get the note3 she loves the size of her S4 its not a big deal, 5 pics at a time isn't bad especially since it transfers so fast...just another minor bug to deal with like the transition animation bug...
