How did I find out that the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have a very annoying limitation
LG surprised with the launch of the G5 with modular structure, and also surprised Brazilians (but not in a good way) with a weaker version of the device called the G5 SE. Following this less encouraging trend, Lenovo also plans to bring the new Moto Z to Brazil, with a processor whose frequency is slightly lower. The news that I discovered that the Galaxy S6 also lites. I explain.
During the announcement of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, one of the major innovations of the handsets would be Samsung Pay, Samsung's virtual payment method, which would be accepted on any current credit or debit card machine.
The system utilizes both NFC and MST technology, which is ultimately responsible for simulating magnetic stripe cards and making the system compatible with non-NFC machines, the South Korean company's biggest differential over Apple Pay and Android Pay.
After much waiting, Samsung finally started testing Samsung Pay in Brazil. And just now, I've found that neither the Brazilian Galaxy S6 nor the Galaxy S6 Edge are compatible with the payment system. That is, the national devices are true capped devices.
This is because they do not have MST technology, precisely what would be the differential of the Galaxy S6 compared to competition, making the service compatible with any current card machine. From the Galaxy S6 line, only the Edge + version will be compatible.
