Using NFC

With built-in NFC (near field communication) on HTC 10, you can share content to another NFC-capable mobile device in an instant.
Note: The availability of NFC varies by phone model, region, and country.
Beam webpages, photos, contact information, and more by holding HTC 10 and the other device back to back.

You can also use NFC for contactless payment. Availability of NFC payment depends on when your mobile operator launches this service. Contact your mobile operator for details.

Turning NFC on or off

  1. From the Home screen, swipe up and then find and tap Settings.
  2. Tap More, and then tap the NFC On/Off switch to turn it on and off.

Beaming content

Important: Make sure that both devices are unlocked and have NFC turned on. If the other device has an Android Beam option, make sure it is also turned on.
  1. While viewing the content that you want to share, hold HTC 10 and the other phone back to back.

    Make sure that the NFC area (shaded part) of HTC 10 and the other phone's NFC area are close to one another. Experiment by slightly moving the phones until a connection is made.

  2. When HTC 10 vibrates, tap the screen to send the content to the other device.
The shared content appears on the other screen. For some items that you've shared (such as contact information), additional instructions on how to save the item will appear on the receiving device.
