    Any phone that has NFC can use Google pay, even Samsung phones.

    Is Google Pay good enough to not need to carry credit cards?

    In the UK the limit that you can pay with Google Pay per transaction is £30, maybe around $40?

    It will only work at places that accept NFC payments.

    Google Pay, Apple pay or any pay that uses NFC payment system is same, nothing special

    Samsung pay in addition to NFC also use MST technology that will let you use it at pretty much every place even though they don't have NFC terminals. So at this point Samsung pay is most useful.

    It's good enough to make it preferred when available. Much faster/easier than CC chip reader payment. However, not anywhere close to universal access, so you'll need to carry cards.

    Not yet, but more and more places accept it now. I always prefer to use Google play if I can. Much faster than waiting for chip card to authorize, plus it's more secure. It always uses a randomized generate number instead of your real card number so if the store get hacked, your number is safe.

    Iv'e never tried Google pay because my understanding is that it's not as widely accepted as Samsung Pay which I've used quite a bit.

    Anywhere you see accept NFC payment will accept Google pay. So if Apple pay work, Google pay will work also. Samsung does have an advantage since it uses magnetic secure transmission, it mimic the managetic strip on your credit card so it can be use at more places.

    No, still to many terminals don't take NFC. Samsung Pay is still superior on this point with the MST tech. That may be the Sammy feature I'd most want on a Pixel.

    The Costco I shop at take a tap of my card, I've not tried Google Pay because they need the card out for ID anyway.

    This is the only place I've just tapped my card to the terminal to pay.

    Yeah, but still more secure to use Google pay since your real card number isn't used
