Im not sure why some need to hold their phones at funny angles to get NFC to work.
Just wanted to say that yep, user1515274512611 seems to have nailed it with the unlock methods. I had issues on Android 7 and the same issues on 8, and have been toggling NFC off and on again in an attempt to make it work. Hitting the power button before unlocking does indeed make all the difference, for me at least.
The only location that works for me for reading tags is over the rear camera area - so long as part of the tag antenna is over any part of the rear camera (from the top lens to the flash LED) tags seem to work. I haven't got a chance to experiment with Android Pay terminals in quite the same way as NFC tags, though, and I have no end of hassle trying to pay-by-tap. I get no response to having tags placed on the top edge of the phone, at any angle.
I can't use Tap&Pay on Oreo 8.1 when using SEQR as payment app. I have not been able to test Android Pay due to not available in Sweden. If the NFC is fixed in Oreo 8.1 have you tested payment via NFC successfully in Oreo 8.1?
I used SEQR Tap&Pay daily in Oreo 8.0 without problems, after upgrading to Oreo 8.1 I have not been able to use Tap&Pay at all. The closest I have been is when one card reader reported unsuccessful the others have stopped reacting to the phone at all.
I would like to know if there is anyone using NFC payment with Oreo 8.1?
Finally NFC is fixed on Oreo 8.1, no need to remember to unlock using PIN instead of fingerprint reader so I can read my NFC tags or use Google Play.
Never had an issue with NFC. As others have stated you just need to know where the antenna is placed, right over the top of the battery on the Nokia 8.
