    My smartphone are international (Portugal) free from carrier. And if any carrier suppress that or  another status icon it will be very strange. Thanks

    Press the 4 squares in the upper right corner to activate NFC then it should appear on your status bar. I think you can drag the icon to the top of the list.

    Settings-Notification Panel. Then configure however you like.

    mikedt 你好

    I'm wondering, is the NFC antenna actually working or not? It is a real Galaxy S8 you've got there, and not a fake one? Where did you buy it? There are quite a few knock-off S8s around, and they have fake features that don't work.
