    May be silly, but Samsung Pay is the most interesting thing about this device for me. Having had my CC as part of the Target hack, tokenization seems like the way to go. NFC payments are so few places I shop or I'd use my Note 4 for it more often. The fact that it will work with any traditional card reader and this is one of the reasons I strongly consider this device.

    But it won't be available until summer?? If that's approaching the end of summer, I'm tempted to wait for the Note 5 with (presumably) a bigger battery and likely to have Samsung Pay also. Very disappointed none of the initial reviews will have a chance to properly use Pay. Don't like the idea of buying it hoping to use this feature only to find out it's a dud.

    My main concern for the mag stripe emulation is that it will be finicky. I can just see the checkout person looking at you funny as you try to get your phone to talk to the card reader and they say "It doesn't work with Apple Pay yet." And you're like "It should work, with any reader", and they just roll their eyes like you're an *****. Or they think you are hacking something.

    Anyone use LoopPay before and can comment on it's effectiveness or strange looks they get?

    Release in summer could mean towards the end. So it might be wise to wait if you are open to considering the next Note device, which historically has been released in the Fall.

    I'm also interested to see what others think about those payment options as well.

    I've been with one of my friends a few times when she used Apple Pay and nobody really gave it a second glance. If Samsung Pay works and the Galaxy sells well enough then I don't imagine it'll get that many odd looks if people use it regularly.

    I'm curious to see if cases have a big effect on it. I think it's 'range' is 3 inches so hopefully cases won't block it otherwise it's fairly useless.

    I used Apple Pay on my 6+ while I had it. It was pretty cool.

    I have the Samsung pay beta, and I must say it is awesome. I used it even at a 711 where the card swipe is left to right and it worked like a charm. It's is smoove and fast even more it is user friendly from the install to setting up to using it. There are only a certain number of banks that support this but I bet more will catch on. With the token involved it's is a great security feature the fingerprint to use the app is awesome so that there are no worries if someone has your phone.

    I absolutely love Samsung Pay. I have been using it for about a week and it has worked flawlessly. I love the fact that I don't have to carry my wallet everywhere.

    The only thing i hate about samsung/android pay is that it requires you to use a secure lockscreen with a pin or pin swipe method which disables the use of bluetooth. What i mean is, you can't initiate a call until the screen is unlocked.

    If this is the case, which it has been on android pay so far, then this is totally useless for me. And yes, i set my BT as a trusted device and etc. If there is a setting or something I'm missing, tell me dangnabbit!

    Thanks. Android pay won't work. If you shut the pin lock off, it disables it. Although, i honestly can't comment on Samsung pay as i don't have it yet. I just assume it will be the same for security reasons.

    Samsung pay requires finger print or password. So even if the screen doesn't have a lock the paying process has its own security block.

    Android Pay lets me use my fingerprint lock screen, not a password or pin lock screen. Fingerprint lock screen shouldn't disable the BT

    Everything is still on track, there was an update today with some changes on the UI, now it can even be launched with the Screen Off.

    I don't have the new Samsung phones yet. But I was curious, has anyone tried using it at the gas pump?
    With the card reader inside the pump housing, I was thinking it would be hard to get the card reader and the phone close enough to work.

    I think the problem with the pump is that Samsung pay closes out transaction within 3 seconds. But the gas pumps work differently in that the final dolar amount is not available until you are done pumping gas

    From what I've read, gas pumps won't work because there's a physical mechanism inside the reader that has to be pushed by a card to start reading the magnetic strip.

    That seems to make sense. Too bad, but hopefully they will start shipping Swpe cards soon. Preordered one about 10 months,ago. Between Samsung Pay and Swyp card, I'll just need my CDL and medical card for work on me.

    I was curious to try it before I sold my S6 but with AT&T not pushing the 5.1.1 & Samsung pay update yet I have a feeling I won't get to at least play with it a bit :/

    AT&T will probably push 5.1.1 and Samsung Pay at the same time.

    I'm in the Samsung pay beta and it works perfectly. Its one of the big reasons I bought the s6. No more wallet for me.

    Yup, but since My S6 goes off to Samsung for repair on Monday and then once it gets back it's getting sold so I won't even be able to try it. That is, if AT&T even releases it on Monday.
