FAQs:
q: Why my transfer speed decrease when I turn off the screen?
a: Enable the option 'Lock Wifi'. If your device is running at least Android 2.3.x, you should get full speed transfer even when the screen is off, otherwise enable the option 'Lock screen' too.

q: I got the message "Can not find a valid WiFi interface", how can I solve it?
a: On some devices (Galaxy Note 2 in particular) the WiFi interface is not detected from the application, please set the option "Bind interfaces" to wlan0

q: How can I use this app if my device is connected with an ethernet cable?
a: Disable the require WiFi option and set as bind interface eth0

User reviews of SambaDroid
Have PRO version with whitelisted WIFI and ability to add user accounts. Only minor issue is that I need to unlock the phone before windows can connect, Hate MTP, love RoboCopy! I am using Windows 7 with my Nexus 4 (Android 4.2.2) and am having no issues with setting up a unique userid and password. On the Windows end you must specify "domain\username" otherwise its a user error :-)

Excellent app......but..... throws an "invalid argument" error at exactly 2.1GB into any large file transfer (I have >50GB available space). This is the only Samba app that has worked for me (on a linux machine). It is extremely simple to use and very effective for smaller file tranfers. Hopefully the large file transfer problem will be fixed very soon.

Fast server on lollipop After a few hiccups (related to another samba app not working, and causing issues), Sambadroid is working a treat, and anecdotally faster than ServersUltimate in transfer speeds. Also working with my sd card. Thanks dev.

Nice job done, but.. This is the only one samba server which is working on my minix perfectly: gigabit ethernet + multiple internal & external drives, so I bought the pro version. But.. I found out, I cannot copy larger files from my w7 computer then approx. 6GB :( This is only one problem I have, but it's quite bad as I cannot copy full hd movies to my minix, I will rate 5* when this problem gets fixed.

Best SMB app I have found Having tried many other apps to turn my android stick into a dedicated SMB server, I can safely say this is the simplest and best out there. Already bought because its worth it! For people with an asus router and a ddns name who access their shares via aicloud webpage or however, you can see and access your android device from Lan or Wan. I would recommend this app to anyone looking to samba share because it just works.
