    I love how Samsung has a shortcut even on lock screen. They all do the same shit anyway so it's irrelevant whichever you have.

    I would definitely choose Samsung pay been using it for about two years now and it's the best never had a payment rejected at a store. You forgot to mention the fact that there is Samsung rewards with the Samsung pay app. You get rewards points for every purchase you make with Samsung pay. You can use those reward points to buy things or to trade them in for gift cards

    I have tested Samsung pay for months now and it is AMAZING. Maxed out my cash back and got many rewards by using Samsung Pay.

    It actually does work on iPad POS stands that have the Square Reader. What I have noticed is you have to slowly move your phone like if you were "swiping" in order for it to read the MST.

    Great update @CNET, I follow your videos all the time. I am always field testing technology like this.

    Hmmm I doubt it. Almost anywhere across the UK accept Apple Pay. How come “this place” so far behind?

    I bet they went a long hard way trying to figure out how Samsung would not win and at the end they just didn't want to say Samsung but they had to iknowledge the facts. It's okay CNET, everyone already knows by now Samsung it's the best and the ladies love it too

    Far out the US is so behind on banking.

    Where I live, everyone has nfc payments, even small food vans.

    Sending people money, 1 business day through your bank (no fees) and a lot of banks are moving to NPP which I can send money instantly (even to a different bank, no fees)

    Google pay is the only broad payment type that encompasses many people, unlike the typical ipay and now Samsung for specific devices ?? Only reason that a specific device would make market headway is the money involved cause clearly why would want to be stuck to one vendor type? Not me…

    Lost your credit card and still have not called the bank to cancel the card? That’s just silly!

    You CAN use a Samsung device in the ATM, but you need to use the bank app, not the Samsung Pay app. CNET should do their research

    In Norway almost everyone have this app called "vipps" and it's instant transfer if you have the bank that made the app. you could also use another bank but it will take a few hours to a day for the transfer to complete.

    Actually Samsung Pay also works in Hungary (which is nowhere near some western countries) and I was very surprised when I saw that. It means Samsung is beyond the competitors.

    Cash all the way !!! Never hand over my credit/debit cards to anyone who might want to skim them and never use the Samsung pay on my S8. Every single offline transaction I make is not tracked in any way. Online it's paypal all the way.

    So you lost your credit card a month ago and haven't replaced it?!? Hope you at least had the sense to have the number cancelled so no one else can use it.

    Enough to sway you to buy the phone. That is total BS. Bet your not saying that about Apple Or Google. The old Samsung days are gone. The phones from the past two years has been the best phones on the market. Your not losing anything by switching. Hell your Actually gaining by switching. This video is just one form of Samsung doing everything and better than the competition.

    Would love to go cardless but here in the UK at least we still have £30 limit for contactless payments, is there no limit elsewhere?
