    Hi and welcome

    YES you can do that (between any android devices with a local wifi network)

    Install ES file explorer on both devices (there are other apps that will work but this is the one I use)

    On the first device open the menu by pressing the top left "globe" button
    tools
    remote manager
    turn on

    Device 1 is now an ftp server with the address shown

    On device 2 open ES file Explorer
    menu
    network
    ftp
    new button
    select ftp
    enter the address from device 1 in the server box eg 192.168.0.13
    enter the port no in the portbox (thats the number after the colon in the server address)
    tick the anonymous box
    press ok

    If it does not work, check both devices are connected to wifi. You now have both devices appearing in the file explorer on device 2. You can copy paste and delete as you wish!

    The slightly simpler but less private method is to use the ame dropbox account on both devices and move files via dropbox.
