    I think that Oneplus chose to leave the nfc because of tbe styleswap.

    The nfc was the reason why the cancelled the styleswap on the OPO because it was increasing the price of the styleswap (and it was hard to change)

    I dont think NFC is a must..i prefer having 4 styleswap cover for a good price #AllAboutThatSwag

    Then they should have put it in the battery like other devices.

    Nfc is a must! They even added a fingerprint scanner! What's the point of fingerprint scanner if you can't use it for nfc payments! Oneplus 2 is not future proof!

    Agreed! Most of the people don't use NFC, probably those too who are complaining about lack of NFC.

    Are nfc in the battery as effective? Considering their is 2 or more layer after it (when we remove styleswap we only see black plastic so there is at lease two layers before battery (SS and blackplastic)

    also they are always over priced for what they are, a moulded piece of plastic manufactured in a factory in China must cost pennies to make

    I never used NFC. But if it becomes a standard it could quickly become an important piece of technology.

    Well the Galaxy Note 3 managed pretty well with it, the NFC was in the battery in that and I always used a case on it so presumably it would begood. :)

    And there are still more people prefering the NFC, rather then the StyleSwap...:(
    Maybe Oneplus should have gone for the NFC.

    There's still chance guys let them think of it and they can change the price a bit for the NFC or make extra styleswap covers with NFC we should wait

    the lack of NFC for people to date isn't the issue - so I don't think saying "no one used it" is a valid argument at all. The truth is NFC will empower the next generation of mobile payment systems, whether it's Android Pay or Apple Pay - and without it the phone isn't 'future proof'.

    the phrase "flagship killer" is very marketing based - and can be used in a lot of contexts. What they don't say is "future proof" because quite simply they can't now.

    Ok, and do you know if that type of NFC chips are more expensive?

    Honestly I have no idea but NFC is so wide spread these days I can't see it being much of a difference, probably a couple of dollars at most.

    Then what was the reason? I heard many time that the production wasnt effective because there was alot of probleme with the nfc, the antena and the byild quality

    May I ask for the source of your statistic? I for one complained about the lack of NFC, but use it extensively for payments, transferring images, sharing my apps, and interacting with my camera.
