Default What different ways are there to copy folders between two different nexus 5's??

I want to transfer two folders from my SD card download folder on my n5 to my sister's n5..

I tried turning on NFC and touching the phones, but I didn't see any way to transfer the folders.. Same for Bluetooth..

Upload it to an online storage (Google drive, dropbox, box, etc.) and send her a link.

Or there are probably some apps in the play store that will transfer files over WiFi.

Folders and files can't be sent with NFC. It's mainly for smaller things like photos, links and contact info.

Well good luck with that. Depending on how big the files are, you will most likely need some kind of internet. Bluetooth will be slow or have errors.

Get an OTG cable and use a USB stick.
