    I've used Google Pay since it was first introduced on the Galaxy Nexus, though I've only really started using it frequently in the last few years its availability has become more ubiquitous.

    Now that I am getting the S20, are there any advantages to Samsung Pay? Perks? Is it easier to use if I attach multiple cards? Does if manage store reward cards as Google Pay does.

    I think it is no better/worse. I always thought of them (apple pay included) being which one is used at more places.

    Also, if you have a WearOs watch I think Google Pay is a must. But if you get a Tizen/Samsung watch, chances are using samsung pay would be super useful (from watch)

    In my experience, Samsung Pay (on my Note 8) works at a lot more places than Google Pay. I freak out the cashiers when they ask if I have Google Pay or Apple Pay. I say Samsung. Then scan it and it goes through perfectly. Meanwhile the cashier forgets how to finish the transaction and has to void something and do it all over LMAO.

    I will say Google Pay works well (where it is accepted) on my LG V40.

    I do use 2 credit cards on Samsung Pay and i just swipe to the card I want to use and it's very easy. I don't used it for Store rewards as they are all loaded in Google Pay (Yes, I am too lazy to move to Samsung Pay)

    I've found most places accept Google play even if they don't know it. If it has the mobile pay icon it is accepted.

    Also strangely not surprised. Google has been known to half ass things here and there. Maybe I will give it a fair shot.

    Probably because Samsung Pay has MST (if you have a phone that supports MST), which means you can use it anywhere that takes only mag-stripe cards. AFAIK Google Pay doesn't have MST.

    Not surprised at all. Most have no idea.

    Samsung Pay works at a lot more places than Google Pay. If you live in a big city, Apple and Samsung Pay are everywhere and are used all the time. :)
