Just thinking of getting a Nexus5 and, while I don't expect to use the full 32G for a while I was wondering about external wireless storage - NFS or Samba. A quick google has not revealed anything useful about NFS.
Just wondering if anyone's played??
Though I may wait till I've got linux on it.

My understanding was, when I got my latest android, that root access was needed for NFS.

I played with samba shares via android without much reliable success (seemed very slow). I think it was CIFS Manager I tried.

I tend to use SFTP for most of my Android file <--> PC/server traffic.
