    just hit my feed..

    But I wonder for how much longer it'll get a boost from being able to be used on swipe machines.

    I can't believe the slow rollout of these pay systems be it android pay / samsung pay / apple pay .... They are all still just a mystery here.

    So more Apple Pay users would recommend over Samsung pay, but Samsung pay is better liked? Ok then.:confused:

    Because Apple users are blinded to the world outside of Apple by their own fanboyism, and refuse to accept that something could be better than what Apple offers.

    But I guess is not as recommended. So people recommend a non-existent product?

    Don't know if your serious or not, if you're not, okay ha. If you are, perfect example of "extreme fanboism" on the "other side". People who live in glass houses and all of that...

    Samsung buying LoopPay was a smart (and costly) move. It immediately lets them say Samsung Pay is available everywhere. While Apple and Android Pay is not. However within 5 years, they will nearly all be identical in usage. So arguing over which is better today is just a pissing match. It is not like Samsung actually made any technology here. They outbid everyone else and implemented a legacy technology in their phones first.

    It would have been better for everyone if LoopPay remained 3rd party and could be used with all devices. But that isn't good business for the "we have what you don't" mentality of corporations and consumers.

    They absolutely refuse to accept that certain things can be well implemented than what Apple does
    Your point?Samsung Pay tops the list because I don't have to worry about it being unsupported at any location .Apple Pay scores lower because of a lower sample size due to low population size

    In one year when everything is chip and pin there will be no advantage to Samsung pay. Apple Pay will have the advantage as it will be integrated into websites as well.

    You mean chip and pin in the states..

    Both of these companies are world wide and I'm sure Sammy did the ROI on the purchase of loop pay.

    I barely use Apple Pay anymore because many places I go don't accept so i can't be bothered. When I had the s6 I used Samsung pay a lot because it worked in 100 percent of the places I shopped.

    This is samsungs biggest flagship market and when swipe goes away that advantage evaporates. I do look forward to Apple Pay on websites.

    I actually stopped using Apple Pay because it's faster to swipe a credit card as I carry two ccs in my pocket at all times. My son actually had a "hijack" attempt on his phone in the city when he used Apple Pay.

    Sometimes it was quicker to swipe than using Samsung Pay. But now all my cards have been updated with smart chips. Now Samsung Pay is always quicker than inserting my card in the slot and waiting for authorizing. And some terminals are a pain, if you don't insert your card just right, it will fail and you got to do it again. I've been using Samsun Pay much more because of this.

    Actually you make a good point. :)

    In those terminals where your card is to inserted it takes a while for authorization. But this is the states. When I was in Iceland I used my Amex everywhere and authorization was instant.

    Perfectly stated. I find Apple Pay the best implementation of all the NFC payment services I've used, with a near zero failure rate. Samsung Pay, however, when it works, is all kinds of awesome because no one ever believes my fancy phone is going to work with their old card swiper. :)

    Will be the same for Samsung once swipe is no longer accepted. It will just take a little while for that to become irrelevant.
