    Transfer speeds are really good, but the only thing bothers me is connecting time, it take way longer to connect with devices

    This is a great feature. Used it a couple of times.
    But the file dash In Oneplus File Manager is Nice when I want to transfer large files.

    Screenshot_20210219-205314_1.jpg I've found an issue when shared an app this way.
    Some apps need to be installed from the play store.

    Thanks for the informative thread :D

    Sure, why not :) I'd love to apply it to sharing of hidden apps ;) jk ofc... sorry, couldn't resist ;-p

    I just have one issue with it... "Nearby Share" doesn't quite roll off the tongue... and as such doesn't really suggest a smooth procedure to me; "NearShare" would've already been better imo, but eh well, I guess in the end it's not about the size of the feature's name, but about how you use it that matters :cool:
    Was it named by Celine Dion? :D (do I need to tag @Cakepips now?)
    "Nearby, far, wherever you are,
    I believe that the share does go on
    " :p

    Are you sure? :rolleyes: The result of that could end up being quite risqué :eek:

    In all seriousness, I'll definitely give this Nearby Share business a whirl some time.

    They do indeed, the screenshots you can see on the starting post were grabbed from my own experience with it. ;)

    That is actually a way better name for it. I hope Mr. OnePlus can read your message and start working on their own version of it. Maybe tweak it to "AirShare" or "NearDrop". :rolleyes::D

    Hehe, indeed. @Cakepips is the de facto tag when Mrs. Dion is summoned. :cool:

    Perhaps she did, but it was not well configured. :rolleyes:

    Ironically, I believe Rose and Jack, more than Nearby Share, wished they could have... Airplane Mode. :D:p
