Transferring files over Wi-Fi Direct within the Samsung device family is an easy seamless process.

First you need to set up the Wi-Fi Direct connections.  Here we first connect the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge with the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Overall Samsung has done a good job at implementing Wi-Fi Direct to share files between other Samsung devices.  However, if you are trying to share files between a Samsung device and a non-Samsung device, most likely you will run into problems.
