NFC Detection Spotty



  • I think this is the best place for this. This isn't in the app section because it isn't an issue with the app.
    Since the latest app updates my NFC detection has been spotty on my ring. It doesn't detect at all for a while and if I cycle NFC off and on it works perfectly again.
    This could be pure coincidence I just remember it started after the last app update. Not even sure what causes it too happen just seems to do what it likes.

    Well this is really weird.. Never heard of anything like this before..

    RE "Since the latest app updates my NFC detection has been spotty on my ring." -- We don't control the low down logic for NFC detection, this handled by the OS but I can't imagine this has changed..

    RE " It doesn't detect at all for a while and if I cycle NFC off and on it works perfectly again." -- This is crazy, I have no guess why this might be happening.. I'm not stating it's not happening, I'm sure it is but I can't explain it ;\

    Any chance you can please record a video of this happening so we can see it first hand?

    I was getting this on android 4.2 with my Xperia M, it resolved itself with an OS upgrade when that became available.
    It may have something to do with your power saving settings wherever that may be, try turning off all battery saver stuff and see if that makes a difference.



  • @Lokki I don't have any enabled and running a N4 I have the latest build of KitKat

    Have a look at this and let me know if it could be it... you might be stuck until the next release:

  • Not that issue, I'm running 4.4.4 I'll assume the bug has been fixed since then.
    I only posted because it happened for a few days straight. Only happened once yesterday. It's no big deal anyway.
    Thank you guys for looking into it.
    If it happens again and I'm able to shoot a video of it I will if not thank anyway.
