Question [Q] How to share GPRS internet of S5 to Tab S wen they are connected via WiFi Direct

I have Galaxy S5 with GPRS internet connection and Galaxy Tab S (non LTE version)
I know to use a Mobile Hotspot and it works perfectly.
My question is, when I connect S5 and Tab S via WiFi direct- the GPRS internet of the phone is not shared to Tab S.
If I try to make a Hotspot during WiFi direct connection- the WiFi direct gets disconnected.

You don't use wifi direct to share internet.

Just make hotspot with your S5, then connect your Tab S via wifi, NOT wifi direct.

I know, but I am looking for solution,
For example, when I am on places where there is no WiFi connection, but I established WiFi direct between Tablet S and S5 and I am working on the Tablet (also answering sms or phone calls from the tablet)- I want to use GPRS internet of the phone.
Sounds logical that this option should be...
May be there is some other way to do it?

Nope. You can't use Sidesync without a proper external wifi connection.
