Looks like Android Pay may beat Samsung Pay to the UK, but Google's 'few months' is typically vague.

It was suppose to be release when they released the s7 and s7 edge but because of some regulations, they are having to delay it again.
in a few years ? no ? android pay in few decades ?
will i need nfc or not ?
For the first time. should be set out the, what type of support payment, he would like most, around the world. So, will unite like system, others will want another system. A total nonsense.But either way, its implementation will take much longer.

The implementation of this technology, the future, it will still take a long time before today. It's huge amounts of money that needs to be implemented.
Let's be realistic. May lasts more than a few months. But please GSMArena, to look over the content published articles. Some data from the S.F. Par-example, stuff like USA, are 1.5 million new users of services pay monthly. A nonsense. I laughed myself to tears.
Hmm... TFL (London underground and train) is not on board and popular supermarkets such as Sainsbury's and Tesco which have stores virtually in every main streets are also not there.

AnonD-410872, 23 Mar 2016Samsung pay will put Apple pay to shame. It might just do that......
......if Samsung ever decide to launch it outside of S.Korea and the USA. I am in the Uk, and when I first powered up my Galaxy S7, the Samsung Pay app was present (obviously couldn't do anything with it, but at least it was there).
However after the first firmware update, the app has vanished, and there is no way to get it back onto the device (it doesn't show up in either the Google Play Store or the Galaxy App store), a strange move considering the supposed 'imminent' launch wouldn't you say???
Why should shops need to sign up for the service? If my phone is acting as a cards magnetic strip or chip, and it's linked to my debit card why does it not just work with existing card readers?
AnonD-204987, 23 Mar 2016no good banks, no good stores... could be a flopIt's early days, I expect the majority if not all banks in the UK will sign up. As for stores, expect to see this expand quickly. I imagine there will be as many stores as there are for the Apple alternative.
No TSB, yet they are related to Halifax?
After finding that I can't root and use Android Pay at the same time, I'm not too fussed anymore. Contactless cards will suffice.
