NFC Ring + OnePlus One

  • I was a KickStarter backer for the NFC Ring project and just received my first ring and have a few others ordered to support the NFC Ring team. I was excited to use it but my GS4 is having NFC issues. Has anyone tested out the NFC capabilities of the OPO or have any of you bought/tested an NFC Ring. What are your thoughts on both? I like the idea of having NFC tags for different things, like setting your phone to work/sleep/driving modes, but since there isn't NFC integration into the stock lock screen (only a secondary NFC Ring lock app, which is very buggy) having a wearable tag doesn't seem very useful right now.

  • I use my rings on a daily basis. I used it with a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE and now Oneplus One (for a couple of years now). I used my rings for unlocking my phones via Google's NFC Smartlock and NFC Ring's app (1 ring to unlock both; otherwise, input 2 different PINs). The other tags of the rings are used to toggle wireless (wifi/LTE/bluetooth/GPS), toggle brightness.

    I've used them from Android Lollipop to now Nougat, stock and custom roms on both phones. What's nice with the NFC reader on the Oneplus One is it sits right on my index finger and it reads it pretty well (90% of the time) if I just tilt my ring on my index slightly out.

    I'm also a backer for both NFC Ring campaigns. I have enough rings to feel like wearing 2 Infinity Gauntlets...
