    So I just used NFC for the 1st time. My gf just got the S4 and I was like hey let's see if NFC works awesomely. So we both turn it on and I transfer a picture, works magically!!!!

    Thought I share for people who haven't used NFC yet. Very awesome feature IMHO.

    Yeah I've tried adding a friend with another z10 through. BBM with the nfc tap. It works like a charm, it's such a cool feature.

    Way faster almost instantly than its a simple hold the file and click save on the receiving device

    Actually, all the NFC does is automatically pairs bluetooth. So, the connection is faster, but the the transfer is the same as bluetooth.

    Speaking about the S4, I really like their new quick settings options. I hope BB10 implements the same thing.

    We might as well have the quick settings panel go all the way down and have more toggles, it's not like we need to see the screen behind us for it to go half way down.

    Seems slower than bluetooth. it depends on the file though. I sent a few YouTube videos and it was instant and pulled up the app on the S4 to play automatically

    Why not just send data via email? Wouldn't that be just as fast?

    I guess. Just the point of NFC being on today's devices so why not make some use of it.

    Because if you're not in wifi, you have to pay for data.
