How to transfer big files using S Beam？
Transferring a file between two phones couldn't be simpler. You simply navigate to the image, video or music track that you want to send and hold the back of your phone against the back of another S Beam-capable device. Your phone will tell you to 'tap to beam', and the file transfer will begin.
As the transfer uses Wi-Fi Direct, you can then take the phones away from each other and the transfer will continue uninterrupted. You don't need to be connected to the same network for this -- it all happens automatically between the phones.
At the moment, S Beam is only available on the Galaxy S3, although as Samsung continues to release more Android 4.0 devices, you will be able to transfer files in this way between more models. You can use the Android Beam functionality with any phone running Android 4.0 or later that has NFC capabilities.
