Actually, your Android phone may offer a native function to help you share pictures with others – Android Beams, allowing data to be transferred via NFC. If there were no computers, it may be a good idea to get your photos synced with this built-in Android feature. But remember, this function only works between Android devices version 4.1 and above. Next, let me introduce you the steps.

1. Go to the "Settings" and tap the "More…" button under "Wireless & networks" to enable NFC on both mobiles.
2. Open the Gallery and then select the photos you want to transfer.
3. Make sure both devices on and unlocked and then hold them back to back.
4. After hearing a sound when the NFC connect, you will see "Touch to beam" on your screen. Touch the item and the image will be transferred to another phone.
Note: Indeed, the transfer happens over Bluetooth, which means file transfers isn't super-fast, therefore, it is suitable for transferring few images.

Either approach above is practical to transfer pictures from Android phone to another. Phone Transfer makes the transfer comprehensive and fast, while Android beams is appropriate when there is no computer and you have to send few pictures. So you can use them depends on your situation.
