Easy and Protected Mobile Payment
Samsung Pay, a new, easy-to-use mobile payment service that will be compatible with more locations than any competing offering in a single application, will launch on Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in the United States during the second half of this year.

Wow.. We still compare Apple to Samsung? Man phones are phones its simple.. Whatever you feel like buying then go for it? No one is stopping you to choose what phone you need to purchase.. If you appreciate samsung that much and love there tech then go for it? Same on Apple iPhone.. People has different taste in life.. If the phone they bought comes in handy for them so be it.. iPhone or samsung? Whatever buy what you feel/think is better.. If you want to compare both phones for features and design? Then go for it.. If it makes you satisfied.. Remember folks.. Every single year phones change technology evolves.. Until it reaches the era of nothing but pure computer running methods.. Until humanoids are amongst us.

Technology is what we are looking for either Samsung or Apple products.There are people who purchase any phones come to market, Tech hunger, no offence to anyone if have to mention that what options Samsung give on their phones is more than Apple iPhone.
Make believer - March 4, 2015 at 1:42am
the options of Samsung phones are barely different by outside or very little on inside like waterproofing, curved lcd, etc. but you can do most of these things on other devices as well in which most of these are useless.
SAMSUNGBEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - March 4, 2015 at 4:33am
Make believer- Very different on the outside, what are you talking about, the completely changed the designed, they upgraded from plastic to metal, and to have a curved glass and a bent screen to accommodate that thats engineering, so what you want, they have wireless charging built in a device charges in 10 min for 4 hours of average usage, and 30 min of full charge from 0-100 percent thats innovation, your going to say what you want it copied apple blah blah sorry to break it to you but apple wasnt the first company to put glass in the front or back, other phones had it way before apple. Secondly Android is a open platform which means you can do whatever the heck you want with it, unlike the close boring system of iOS its like a knockoff of Blackberry dont let you do anything. Also keep in mine the display is 2K and has more pixels then your stupid iPhone 6 plus which is still at 1080p even with that crappy screen, you cannot even use it for more than 4 hours. Stupid phone. How I know, I have all the phones from Samsung to latest iPhone 6 Plus so dont tell me otherwise im a developer and know more about phones and technology then you. First you diss Samsung because its not premium metal, now it has gone metal and you still find reason your a poor excuse for a human. I have news for you look at the benchmark, seems like S6 smoked your stupid iPhone 6, 6 Plus and iPad Air 2, what you have to say to that! Oh and by the way, if Apple is such a DESIGNER why is it that SAMSUNG made chips run your devices and why is that SAMSUNG EXNOS has 8 cores, ( 4 + 4 ) not true 8 cores, its quad core and smokes your ass. Could be that touchwiz is crap, ok it is and your point, the iOS 8 isnt any better crashes freezes reboots too.. Put cygenmod and then it will smoke the benchmarks even more. The oneplusone which is a new company has more features that your stupid iphone, and your NFC is only limited to Apple Pay a useless feature that only work with that, and 10 percents of merchants WOW NICE DESIGN... LOL its nothing more than a joke! And hackers already hacked your stupid SO SECURE APPLE PAY.... http://www.benzinga.com/exclusives/14/12/5111856/did-apple-pay-just-become-easier-to-hack whats a matter your so secure figure print scanner and unable to hack just got hacked. its crap so is the phone and the stupid Apple Pay, go with Samsung at least you can use it on all 90 percents of stores... Samsung is a technology company not a fashion designer that has no tech under it.
