"Our comparisons are written to help you decide which to buy rather than declare one an outright winner. In this comparison, it's clear that the Nexus 6P is better value with 128GB on offer for less than the 32GB Edge+ and with no Micro-SD card slot this is a big deal. It also has an 8Mp front camera, USB Type-C and the latest Android. However, Samsung's phone is arguably more stylish, is more manageable, has a better rear camera and has wireless charging."

"This technology will most likely be replaced by more secure options like chip-and-PIN one day, but it will take many years for the full switch to happen. Samsung Pay also communicates with NFC readers, so the strips aren't the only way it can function. Once you enter and verify your card data in the app, Samsung Pay generates a new virtual card to keep your financial data secure. As you make a purchase, your phone emits a magnetic secure transmission, and the card reader will think you just swiped that virtual card. But there's no need to actually swipe. Just hold your phone close to the terminal. If you check out your receipt, you'll see that the last four card digits listedaren't the same as your actual card.
This is a fantastic innovation that solves the single largest problem facing mobile-payment systems: you just can't expect most retailers to have NFC readers. Big chains like McDonalds and Walgreens have been pretty good about upgrading most of their locations, and the technology will surely spread as time goes on. But right now there are countless smaller establishments that only accept cards or cash. You don't need to worry about those discouraging hurdles when using Samsung Pay. It even works with mobile, external card readers like Square."
