    Hey all,

    Been using Android pay for a while now, click and pay. Works in most locations I use, not all but, a lot of them.

    Samsung pay seems to support more hardware devices...

    For people who use Samsung pay, is it worth it ?

    I hate having a credit card in 40 places and it seems like that...

    in the UK where I am I do t think k there are any direct advantages of using Samsung over android pay. but I prefer Samsung pay because it is inbuilt, doesn't require NFC to be left on and requires authentication every time it is used

    Overall, the biggest advantage of Samsung Pay over Android Pay and iPay is the MST technology. You can use it to tap, just like Android Pay and iPay, but where taps are not accepted, it can simulate a swipe. In fact, I find that the MST (magnetic secure transmission) works better than the tap technology. The big trick is to get the cashier to get the machine ready for a swipe, when you aren't handing them a card. I used Android Pay for a while, but IMHO Samsung Pay far surpasses Android Pay and iPay.

    There is no comparison, IMO. If I see a slider, my Samsung Pay works. I don't have to look for Android Pay available notices etc.

    Bring up a card you've registered on Samsung pay by sliding up from the bottom of the phone screen, authenticate with irises or fingerprint, and hold the phone near the slider as it pulses. Use it all the time and it works well.

    I haven't use Google Pay, but I use Samsung Pay all of the time. I have my Costco Visa card registered which gives me money back when I use it almost anywhere. Along with that, I am also getting Samsung Reward Points, which is a bonus you don't get with Google

    I used Samsung pay until I moved to the Pixel 2 XL.
    I miss it, and my bank, Suntrust is still not on Android Pay, BUT, Master Card MasterPass works.

    Really Samsung pay works on a pixel? I'm surprised I thought it was just Samsung devices maybe they have branched out

    Don't think that's true. Samsung pay only works on selective Samsung devices. I have pixel XL 2 and Samsung pay is not an option nor you can install samsung pay app.

    How did you get that to happen? I’m pretty sure Samsung Pay only works on select Samsung devices S6 and newer.

    Visa Checkout now works with Samsung Pay so as Samsung Pay gets more integrated into online payments, I would say there is less and less reason for me to use Google Pay. Google doesn't seem to be interested in pushing Google Pay to be better while Samsung seems to be really pushing features and incentives like there's no tomorrow - and it's working.

    Also back when people said MST was not a big deal because magnetic stripe was dying - here it is like 2 years later and I still use MST a lot on magnetic strip readers. It'll be a while before that is phased out and Samsung Pay has all your bases covered.

    I've a few issues with Samsung pay and none really pertain to the service. First is just usability. I'm a recent Windows Phone convert and enjoy the Microsoft Launcher. Between the launcher's app drawer, the navigation bar, and the Samsung Pay drawer, I'm in drawer hell at the bottom of the screen. Next, I trust Google just a tad more than I do Samsung with my stuff. Lastly, I just loath the cluttered screen that is the Samsung Pay app itself. Android Pay fits more easily into how I use my phone and works at all the places I used my previous phone. But, if I could alieve issue 1, I would consider Samsung for the rewards.
