I have few HD movies each occupying around 1Gb to be transferred from one Android phone to another. I've read the question How to transfer files over Wi-Fi without a hotspot and its answers. Even before reading the question, I explored transferring one of the above said movie file from my LGP500 to my Nexus 7 (2012) successfully using ES Explorer and Wi-Fi.
Now at my work, I am trying to do the same to my friend's Micromax A110 and all my efforts goes vain. I tired to make Micromax A110 to host a random Wi-Fi network and I join my LGP500 to it before transfer. After selecting the file and choosing
Send option, the upcoming UI just shows
scanning... and a progress bar goes on and on. There are no visibility settings like Bluetooth in Wi-Fi transfer mode.
I tried the reverse the connection and again it failed.
I am bit puzzled and think I am missing something obvious. Can someone help by providing a step by step guide to transfer files between two Android devices with ES File explorer using Wi-Fi?
I am sticking with Wi-Fi because the transfer rate was too good. I saw near to 10 MB/s. And I do not want to install other apps as I find ES File explorer available with many of my friends.
- My LG P500 is rooted and runs stock v2.3.3
- My Nexus 7 is rooted and runs stock v4.3
- My friend's A110 is not rooted and runs stock 4.0.1
- Size of the file that I transferred successfully is 600Mb and face failure on the same file.
