Re: Thanks for the summation
@nasimson,

A agree with your comments. Apple users do spend more, since Iphones are considered premium devices.

But hopefully Android Pay will lead to take mobile payments to the finish line.

Now, I'm very curious to see how Android Pay and Samsung Pay will co-exist (if they can), since they live in the same ecosystem, but are direct competitors.

I think only time will tell how that turns out...but my bet is that Android Pay will surpass Samsung pay simply because it's part of the Android OS, and because it'll probably be intertwined with gmail, so it won't require many additional steps to set up.

What does the community think?

Re: Thanks for the summation
@nasimon, aren't we talking about two different things? I'm not talking about apps purchased through the Andoid Market, that isn't what Android Pay is. We're talking about the ability to pay merchants through your mobile device.

I stand by my original comment - I think Anroid Pay is going to spin circles around Apple with that.

@progman: The appstore $ spend tell a different story. Last time I checked Apple users were spending far more $ on AppStore than Andoird Users on Google's PlayStore.

So given Apple Users are relatively wealthier than Android users I think ApplePay would continue to give tough competition to Google.

Re: Doze
> but you could just switch off your phone at night and go to sleep

For lazy and crazy people like me (and there are millions others) this is not an easy option.

At 10PM in night, all you want is to fall on bed and sleep with the phone in your hand to read the IMs and WhatsApps received in the last hour. The last thing you want is to plug the charger.

But now I know an alternative of Android M Doze. Buy another phone charger with a really long wire and plug it in the socket near bed PERMANENTLY. This might save me some morning-phone-drains.

This is so much like me. And millions of others. I'll upgrade to Android Marshmallow or Android M&Ms as soon as it comes. It will save my battery. It will save my phone. It will save my life :)

Fingerprint authentication
This is one of the important aspects. Most of the users are worried about the security of their mobile devices. With all these new features I think it's a wise decision to incorporate fingerprint authentication.

Re: Hello Privacy
This is an amazing feature. Creating more user friendly platform will increase it be more popular. I think this is more efficient since there is no requirement to have separate apps.

Hello Privacy
Lots of bells/whistles on Android M and yet still no word about preventing privacy invading apps from phoning home without knowledge or permission of the mobile device's owner.

I think Android Pay is going to kill it. I don't know what the adoption rate has been like with Apple Pay but I think Android Pay will blow it out of the water.

Doze
The Doze feature is really a good thing, but you could just switch off your phone at night and go to sleep, unless you are working full time and would get calls during any part of the day. I also found the USB type C to be a boon to smartphones because there is so much flexibility you have at your hands.
