Share & connect allows you to transfer data and media with other devices.


NFC (Near Field Communication) is a wireless technology that enables data transmission between two objects when they are brought within a few inches of each other. When you enable NFC on your phone, your phone can exchange data with other NFC-enabled devices or read information from smart tags embeeded in posters, stickers, and other products.

  1. From the Home screen, tap the Apps  > Settings  > Networks tab

  2. Tap Share & connect  > tap NFC switch  to turn on.

    When Android Beam is turned on, you can beam app content to another NFC-capable device by holding the devices close together. For example, you can beam Browser pages, YouTube videos, contacts, Polaris Office files, and more. Just bring the devices together (typically back to back) and then touch your screen. The app determines what gets beamed.

    1. From the Home screen, tap the Apps  > Settings  > Networks tab

    2. Tap Share & connect  > tap Android Beam switch  to turn on.
