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 .....

I can transfer via Bluetooth, which is quite slow. Took a little over 20 minutes to transfer audio files around 250MB total size.

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.

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.
