Because you aim wrongly lor. I'll be posting a s9 guide on Samsung forum.

A parent note 8 s8 series s9 series have special nfc wireless charging module. Nb, their engineering really special one sia..

Samsung pay on my s9 seems to be having a much harder time tapping on bus compared to Google Pay on my pixel 2.

Not sure why but it'll take like 2 seconds on the s9 and I have to try and find the sweet spot

Whereas pixel 2 I just hover the phone above the scanner and done.

Of course I can try using Google Pay on my s9. But samsung pay earns points and I don't wanna use more than one platform.

Saw this on SGAG and I think it truly represents us (or at least for me) when the terminal doesn't detect or work with our device.

How did you position your device? I realise that the NFC chip on the iPhone X is just beside the camera module.
iphone's nfc antenna is at top, so best is pointing the top like remote control style.
i tried putting a finger at top to make a gap and tap the top of back cover, the response is slow. seems like cannot put finger there, it will block the nfc. also cannot tap the top back cover parallel with reader, have to point the tip of iphone at the reader.

after some tries, i feel that the best gesture is like the following 2 images.
but the 1st image the gap seems too large, some weaker readers cannot detect. then 2nd image the iphone touches the reader, some of us found that touching the reader also cannot detect.
so how much gap is the best?

i don't know how you position your finger, but if i were to use finger as a gap,

when i grab my phone, palm on the screen, finger on the side, it's like a spider leg on the side of the phone, like that you can easily adjust a fixed gap

like the 1st picture, but palm at the screen instead of back

Finally added Citibank into Apple Pay already. Can see my premier miles as default rather than the POSB Everyday card.

your method means u r tapping the back cover? not pointing like remote control.
btw the 1st image is the correct way of using apple pay when paying at merchant. pointing the top at the reader

but the citi apple pay promotion is only 4 miles (around 2.8% cashback) compared to 20x points and 5% cashback for other cards. seems like the promotion for miles card is not that attractive. other bank's card no promotion also can get 3% or 5% cashback for paywave.

you just need to move your thumb and index finger up to the top, then you can tap the top of the phone with your finger as a gap

or if it look awkward, you can place your finger and the botom half of your phone, but the phone higher to your 2nd partition of your finger, while tilt the phone 45 degree or how many degree you prefer to look like pointing a remote control.

it's just how you position your finger

sounds complicated. so u have tested that the finger gap works good? which is around 1cm?

Wow bro. Thanks for pointing out. Looks like will use rewards card as default for the time being until the promo is over.

Also what other bank card no promo also got 3% or 5%?
