Samsung S5 Android Pay problem = Answer!


I have a trusty Samsung Galaxy S5 which totally refused to lower itself to tap and spend at all. The reason is simple and may affect others. The NFC antenna is inside the battery. I got a new battery for the phone a year ago or so - but got a Chinese non-original battery. This didn’t have the all important NFC antenna - so no-go on Android Pay. Replaced with an original Samsung battery - and hey-presto! Now its only to happy to Tap and Spend!!
Hope it helps
I was totally mystified by the problem - until I recalled I had changed the battery. (BTW = by storing the original battery in the fridge for a year = seems to have revived its power.
