Samsung's NFC has really done it's job. I'm not a big fan of Samsung's phone design (it's changing though), but in terms of hardware, I would choose Samsung all the day.
Endee, 31 Jul 2014Hahah..you don't go out that often do ya? NFC is THE future since 2010 bud.NFC has been around in phones a lot longer. It started in Japan in 2006 but failed to convert enough consumers to it. All phones have NFC to this day and can be used on public transport, as building access keys, etc., but it's not the breakthrough that they had hoped.
gam30toronto, 28 Jul 2014no i never heard of the future. but do you think there is a future so far with all the phones ... moreHahah..you don't go out that often do ya? NFC is THE future since 2010 bud.
gam30toronto, 28 Jul 2014and pukemon, what have you done with the NFC technology so far on current phones?
Therefor... moreAhh how about mobile tap and pay without a crappy paytag?
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2014All these apple users making out as though NFC is somehow miraculously going to be "usefu... moreI would immediately switch phones if Android was somewhat user friendly. I just can't stand it. I like iOS the way it is and will be. And yes, I do own an Android phone also, it's a spare and it will remain as that for a while.
As for the NFC option - how do we know it's there? Could someone point out which component on the board is the NFC bit? NFC has been on phones since 2006, but it's take up has been very slow, even in Japan.
I like NFC, but too many standards and systems make it hard for it to really take off.
All these apple users making out as though NFC is somehow miraculously going to be "useful" now that apple might innovate it. Wake up and smell the roses, It's been useful and used for years you just wouldn't know because you have never had it. And saying apple waited until its "perfected" is crap, maybe they have only just perfected a decent size screen? The original iphone was well ahead of the times but now they are behind and people just blindly stick with them because its what they know.
gam30toronto, 28 Jul 2014english is my 5thLike I said before, you're funny!
Jellybean , 28 Jul 2014English isn't your first language, is it?english is my 5th
gam30toronto, 28 Jul 2014why don't u go back to your Android Jellybean with NFC and educated me what have you done lately. English isn't your first language, is it?
Jellybean, 28 Jul 2014YOU are educating ME? You're funny. why don't u go back to your Android Jellybean with NFC and educated me what have you done lately.
Jellybean, 28 Jul 2014You ever heard of the future? Thought notno i never heard of the future. but do you think there is a future so far with all the phones that have NFC? alot of phones got it but no one is doing anything with it really.
Now i am educating you that with Apple's implementation there will be a future to NFC.
gam30toronto, 28 Jul 2014YEAH like you had alot of stuff to NFC.You ever heard of the future? Thought not
pukemon, 28 Jul 2014Welcome to the 21st century apple. Congratulations.and pukemon, what have you done with the NFC technology so far on current phones?
Therefore, welcome to Apple century, where they finally put THAT into something USEFUL.
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2014Didn't Apple say Airdrop is better than NFC. lol hypocrisy This is a leak pic. don't judge a billion dollar company with your little mind.
dlads, 28 Jul 2014For what? What can it share ? really? Absolutely nothing, it's had BT since it's inception yet... moreMy dear, don't use your current judgement for FUTURE products. it will make you look dumb.
Just like touch ID. it's been around, like people say, for sooooooo long already. iphone JUST implemented it and it is VERY useful.
So if NFC will be in place, I am sure Apple will think of ways that it will work out. NOT JUST PUT IT THERE LIKE SOME COMPANIES.
Don't just think with your current mind, think ahead or you will sound ignorant. Apple would never squeeze something a decade old for nothing.
For what? What can it share ? really? Absolutely nothing, it's had BT since it's inception yet it's been unable to share pics, videos or music, what really is the point of giving it NFC? Tagging to play music would be a Sony patent so Apple would be in the crap if they decided to go with that idea.
