    Just got my htc one and trying to beam some stuff to my GS4, any reason why it won't even acknowledge the fact that 2 nfc phones are close together????

    I think Samsung S-beam is a different standard. Have you tried turning off s-beam but leaving NFC on?

    It may be the aluminum affecting the connection

    It's not the aluminum. Turn off S-Beam on your S4 and leave NFC enabled on both devices, it will work.

    It works. Have done it with my Lg Optimus Pro to and from my Htc One. Odd thing it didn't with my s4 always went to the market and said not available or something like that. Someone mentioned turning of s beam. I didn't think to try that.

    I have no problems beaming from my HTC One to Galaxy S3 and HTC One X. May be a Galaxy S4 thing.

    One thing I noticed the Htc One has to be lower than the other phone also. Almost the white lines at the other phones camera level or lower

    I hate it when you try to beam something and it goes to the play store. If theres a case on it, it could affect it. It has a very small range if a cm or two. Also ive notice that sometimes you have to move the phones around to fine a sweet spot. Im not sure where the nfc radio is located on the one but im sure they still put the nfc in battery for the s4 like the .s3

    Did you put them in the right spot?

    From the AnandTech article:

    "The camera aperture sits near the top of the One and has a third small plastic band attaching it to the primary one. It turns out this is a critical feature to enable NFC, whose active area is the loop antenna formed by the ring around the camera."

    You might have to align the active areas or "sweet spots" on both phones to get it to work.

    Ok thanks it worked! You do have to put the Htc one lower to the GS4 where the battery is and it works. I beamed 7 movies one at a time with no problems. Sweet

    yeah its very simple, you just put the two phones back to each other and it automatically beams whatever file photo or movie that you have on your screen

    With the HTC one the nfc chip is in the ring around the camera, and in most phones it's right in the middle of the back. So tap your camera to the back of the phone

    Whenever I try to transfer a video between my HTC one and galaxy s4, it says my s4 is not able to receive large files - so what's the problem there? Thanks!

    I turned off S Beam on my S4 & it worked. I had to move my phone around the back of the HTC One until they connected, so my phone was actually a bit higher than the HTC One. Then it took a few taps to actually start the beam. But it eventually worked.
