I've been trying to figure out how to transfer files between my Note 3 and Note 4 using WiFi, but have not been successful, yet .....

Please share your experience with transferring files between two Android devices via WiFi. I tried ES File Explorer, but can't get it to work.

I think, for Samsung Galaxy (or other phone) to Samsung Galaxy transfer, you can try Samsung smart switch, which supports audio, video, photo files and data like contacts, messages. Basically, you can say it applies WiFi. I've used smart switch for transferring files from HTC M8 to Samsung Note 5.

Just an idea, have you tried an FTP server? I had certain success with "FTP server" by a developer called The Olive Tree (sorry I can't paste links yet). It worked between cellphone to computer, but it should work the same way between two Android devices (you'll need to install the app in both). The interface is very easy to configure, it just gives you an ip number, you type it and boom...

The best option is to use Share it, u can download it from Play Store. For samsung devices you can use Wi Fi Direct which you can find in Wi fi settings. Wifi direct works well between samsung devices whereas shareit will work seamlessly with all devices and OSes, even with desktops.

Why is this done on the wifi? A simple transfer to computer via a USB cable is the simplest solution.

You can try Samsung switch since both phones are Samsung. Also you can try other apps, like Apowersoft Phone Transfer, to help you solve the problem.

SHAREit is one of the easiest and helpful ways to share files immediately. You may download this using google play in your device. I started using this late last year because I don’t have any music on my device and my friend insisted that I download SHAREit and he will share music files he has on his phone. Before I followed him downloading the file, I researched first to ensure the app would not harm my device and after that, I was able to clearly understand how [SHAREit][1] app works.
