wifi transfer without using router PowerShot SX710 HS

hello all - does anyone know if its possible to upload photo's directly from the PowerShot SX710 HS directly to an Android cell phone sort of like in an Ad-Hoc connection rather than going through a wireless 802.11g wi-fi router . And if so could you please tell me how in a step by step for a novice please? 

I have sucessfully transferred photos by wi-fi using our home wi-fi router but i am just thinking  if i am out somewhere and I want to upload the photos from the camera wirelessly directly to my andoid phone and then upload to social media by 3G/4G UMTS all without using a router. Is that possible? can I do it that way? 

Thank You.

It depends upon the phone, really.  Does the phone have Wi-Fi or NFC?
