Does the UK version of the the Moto G7 Power have NFC as standard?

2019-03-17, 18:10 PM

Thanks for reading this message.

 

I'm keen to replace my Moto G5 with a G7 Power, but I need confirmation that any G7 Power I buy in the UK has NFC capabilities in the dual-sim version of the phone. I've read on a few publications that it *IS* available in the UK but others have questioned whether that is the case.

 

Could an official (or any other knowledgeable person) on this board please confirm that NFC is installed within both the single-sim and dual-sim versions of the Moto G7 Power?

 

Many thanks in advance for your consideration and prompt reply. I've been using Moto's for a while now and I've been happy with them so far.

No, sorry - at least, not model number XT1955-4 which I bought in Carphone Warehouse in Essex two days ago. I would have bought another for myself if it supported NFC - I use Android Pay in shops and on London tubes and buses all the time! Extraordinary that in 2019 someone in China deciding what features to exclude on the UK model didn't realise how much us Brits use contactless payments, and that this would be a massive dealbreaker for a vast number of potential customers, including myself. Pity, this phone could have been a countrybeater at this price - I love it otherwise.

So I bought a g7 from Amazon and it said it didn't have NFC, Motorola said it didn't and reviews said it didn't but it has.

What is the model number in settings? I bet it's not XT1955-4. It looks like XT1955-7 is the European model that has NFC?

That explains it - you're talking about the G7, not the G7 Power which is what this thread is about. I guess you did say that in your initial message :)

 

So it seems the UK version of the G7 Power does not support NFC. I went into Carphone Warehouse Oxford Street today and checked their display models. The G7 Power (XT1955-4) doesn't have NFC, the G7 Plus (XT1965-3) does.

Sorry I thought you'd realize I ment just g7. The only reason I answered is because I don't think the phone is supposed to be on sell in the UK and just thought it was interesting

I apologize for the delay in my response. I wanted to make sure I had the most accurate info before responding. To answer the question, there are no g7 models sold in the UK that will have NFC.

That's not true, the G7 sold in Carphone Warehouse supports NFC. Do you mean no G7 Power models will have NFC?
