    I want to start using Android Pay. However, I do not tend to walk around with things switched on, such as bluetooth or wifi, unless I'm actually going to be using them. This is to prevent the battery draining, and to protect privacy. There are quick ways to switch on bluetooth and wifi, however, from the drop-down taskbar menu, but NFC isn't in there. Is there a quick and easy way to control NFC?

    I am not sure what device you are using, but I have NFC in my quick Drop Down, and have on previous phones as well, are you sure it's not there, my S8 and S7 have 2 pages and you have to swipe over to the second page.

    You can rearrange it to show up on the first page if you use it frequently.

    Pull down the top bar (the notification bar) with 2 fingers, then choose edit (the pencil icon). NFC should be in there. Long-press it, then drag it to the notifications on top, in the position you want.

    Don't know which phone you're using, but on my S8+, when using Samsung Pay it will turn NFC on and off as it needs it. Android Pay may do the same.

    Love Samsung Pay on my S8. 1st time I've used any mobile payment system and it works like a charm.
