random-person, 01 Apr 2015WTF dude??WTF...u don't understand comments.
Samsung Pay is definitely the best. The store doesn't need NFC-equipped payment protocol--as long as it has the credit card swiping slot, Samsung Pay works with it.
harlekkin, 02 Apr 2015Rushed? Insecure? Use it yourself before you talk crap. Samsung Pay is RUSHED.And Samsung pay will standardize mobile payments because it works on MST as well as NFC.
It doesn't matter if Samsung pay is rushed and Apple Pay wasn't. It's unfortunate that Apple put out a buggy, useless and gimmicky app.
harlekkin, 02 Apr 2015Just wrong. I've got a CommBank PayTag and it plays up a lot as well, it's just an issue that ... moreWhere am I wrong?
When I saw the S6 at MWC, I balked because Samsung decided to use glass for both the front and the back.
After feeling it in my hands at Best Buy, I can safely say that the feel far exceeds that of anything Apple came up with.
But of course, I wasn't feeling confident because making a phone with 90% glass exterior might be too fragile.
But then the drop test videos came out. One of them was outright slamming the S6 to the ground multiple times and not even a dent. Another drop test took 10+ times for the screen to make a slight crack.
It is amazing. Not only does the S6 feel like a luxury car while Apple phones feel like a cheap Honda or Hyundai, its build quality is top notch.
In comparison, Apple phones feel as cheap as a Honda or Hyundai and are as unreliable as American cars.
yeah i said it, 01 Apr 2015Well said Rushed? Insecure? Use it yourself before you talk crap. Samsung Pay is RUSHED.

If you don't like Apple products, that's fine, but don't spread lies. Use an iPhone at least once before you pass judgement.

It's just like how Apple Maps is an inferior copy of Google Maps.
Engineering has never been Apple's strength. All of their attempted engineering feats are usually inferior to their competitors' counterparts.
Apple is only good for one thing: Designs.
It's unfortunate that even Samsung is trouncing Apple in this department, so what is Apple good for now?
They suck at design and they suck at engineering.
This just shows how pathetic apple pay is. Ive been using my google wallet to tap and pay from my Nexus 4 days. I have never encountered any problem what so ever. Never been charged twice. And payments are done quickly. Apple pay is a joke just a copy of google tap and pay.
AmateurHistorian, 01 Apr 2015Retailers are moving too slowly upgrading their terminals. And yes, this problem also affects ... moreThis article is about the great Apple's software experience being as poor, unpolished, inconvenient, and as much of a hyped let down as any other company, that they delude the public into thinking they are superior to, whilst mocking by that same inferred superiority. This should be copied an pasted plenty before it's hidden an burried like all the other potential big stories were, go check out the irish story and the scratched new iPhones brand new in box and see how many instances of those potentially massive stories you can find, remember them trying to silence the german site, even look at the last chapter of this story. If they fell in dung they would smell of media roses, no like all the botched ios updates and the unpounced on home button lag, this is just another day of apple not android, android has no part in this story, but of course .. I'm forgetting. . It's the stores fault not apple, for not telling the public its both unreliable and not ready..you know..like the maps weren't, but to publish that would burst the public bubble and, now, that doesn't sell well does it, now when I snap my fingers, you'll wake up.."snap"
Like how Apple releases garbage phones with poor build quality, they release software that, despite what many of their fans say, are buggy, gimmicky and useless.

The time it take for the transaction to authorize is complete acceptable. The only time I have issue is if there's a hardware issue with the payment system (can't read the NFC chip)

Anonymous, 01 Apr 2015Turns out Apple Pay is a rushed insecure gimmick.Well said
Retailers are moving too slowly upgrading their terminals. And yes, this problem also affects Google Wallet users so there is no need for snickering from stupid fans.
Got mine too, but I already replace i since I've got warranty, wanna see how it last long this time
It works perfectly fine when you bend it 41 degree to the back. Please, everyone with an iPhone, try this.
