File transfer through WiFi direct has never been supported by aosp android. WiFi direct is simply a means of connecting devices and allowing them to communicate even without a local wifi network. On android it allows apps to communicate for local games or as you say file transfer.

So you simply don't have an app capable of transferring files through wifi direct, which the Samsung does, because they included the functionality.

The problem with Samsung's implementation is that since it is using their own interface for contact, there is no guarantee that it will work with non Samsung devices, so in my opinion the better option is to be able to download the same transfer app on both devices, to guarantee that it works probably even between different brands of devices.

Try Superbeam app. I successfully transferred a 300MB video file from my wife's LG G2 to my N5 without any issues. Transferred really fast too.
