Android Beam data transmission:
Two devices with NFC close together, you can transfer data to the NFC, Bluetooth may not be significant compared to upgrade the transmission speed, but eliminating the Bluetooth pairing time, relatively simple. But on the other hand, from the NFC technical characteristics we have just listed can be seen, NFC transmission distance of more stringent restrictions must be strictly controlled within the range of 10 cm; the same time, the compatibility of this function is not good, different brands of mobile phones often there will be transmission incompatibilities, so use this feature experience greatly reduced.
NFC smart tag:
