    Here in this section, we have "NFC", and underneath this it says, "Allow data exchange when the phone touches another device".
    What the Near Field Communication function does is it allow us to beam information, or files, or photos from our HTC One M8 to another device. As long as that device has NFC turned on, then we can beam information by placing our HTC One M8 back to back with another device. We can then beam information to and from it. If we want to turn this option on then, we need to make sure that the box on the right is turned on. We can see that it's currently turned on because there is the word "ON" inside, and we can see that part of the box is green.

    If we press down on the box, it will turn the option "OFF".
    We can now see the box is a much grayer color, and it says the word "OFF" inside.
