Edited by Daniel, Eng, Nuance
Technology is evolving every day. What you deem indispensable today might not be available tomorrow.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy S5 phone and you want to send a contact to a friend who also has a Samsung Galaxy S5 phone, did you know you can send contacts through NFC?
Aside from doing business cards or sending them via Bluetooth, this is one of the easiest ways to send contacts to any other phone that supports NFC. NFC stands for - Near Field Communication. This is a short-range wireless connectivity standard that uses magnetic field induction that allows two devices to communicate when they touch each other, or at the least, brought within a few centimeters of each other.
