Also its not as convenient or fast as NFC enabled payments. If I had to use primitive magnetic card systems then I would use magnetic cards instead, why use a phone? NFC is the future mate stop living in the past.
All those tech illiterate people complaining. It's obviously done for security.
Root is such an important thing, who cares about Knox or Smasung Pay. These are unnecessary features, no one will miss them.
Until developers of phones decide to give the end user the flexibility that root can provide, people will always do it.
"I don't like my battery being green"
"I don't like this app"
"I'd like my settings to be dark instead of light"
"I'd like to back up apps as they are, with all data and progress intact"
Simply can't do things like this without root, security like Knox is just over the top and voids warranty once tripped, companies like Samsung need reminding of what android actually means, they need to stop trying to be apple and be themselves.
As for the payment method, i think it's a bit crap and i wouldn't miss it, call me old fashioned but i prefer good ol cash in my pocket.
To all people who dont know . You will be able to use Samsung Pay on all regular magnetic card swipe machines unlike Apple one.So yes im 100% sure people would actualy use this payment system.

I'm pretty sure any use for it requires at least more information...
Were people actually planning on using it?
Ofc , why would they risk being sued because some stupid user got hacked by root apps and had his Credit Card and other sensitive data stolen.
I would disable Fingerprint reader too, that carries sensitive data which some root apps can access(access , but ofc not use due to heavy encryption, but still).
