Moto G5 - NFC

Does the Moto G5 have NFC?
I have tried the settings options then more, but can't see a switch to turn it on or off.

Re: Moto G5 - NFC

if it were there, it would be in settings under wireless&networks.

I checked a few sites that list specs, I don't see NFC listed

It depends on the region your phone is designed for. In the uk, the g5+ does have nfc, but the G5 does not

Not newer, just different. Other phones that may be older have NFC - just need to review the specs to make sure. 3rd party sites are often incorrect with specs, but the motorola site should be the most accurate. 

 

And the G5 came out about 2.5 yrs ago without NFC in the USA, and a particular model doesn't usually change. Generally the USA G line doesn't have NFC, but you would have to check the G6 and G7 - each has a few different variants in the USA.

Thanks.  Interesting that they do not 'evolve' a current model...

Hardware never changes in an existing model - they create new models, Hence G6, G7, etc.
