I purchased a Gala Ring knowing its shortcimings. I bought it to see if improvement could be made and in the process removed the tag inserted an additional layer between the tag and the ring and glued into place. I was able to get a signal through a Ballist SG MAXX and to my Nexus 5 and in fact used the FrankenGala for a couple weeks waiting on my NFC Ring. So now the I had operated on Gala and received the NFC Ring to test it out I think I should do a small comparison. Firstly the Gala is very uncomfortable it is like wearing an incorrectly sized piece of pipe. BUT if they would use a comfort band design, use titanium, and properly attach and protect the tag it could be MUCH better. The tag needs an addituinal layer of material between the ring and a thinkness that would support being able to resin the tag in place. There is room to improve NFC Ring also as its signal can not clear protective cases well if at all.

RE: Nexus 5
Nexus 5 Sporting the Ballistic SG MAXX Unfortunately the ring will not penetrate the case. I dremmeled through the case and created a pocket for the ring to hit the sweet spot. Leaving the rubber layer in tact . I had not seen this discussion before ordering the ring but had high hopes based on my modified GalaRing being able to break through the case. I quess the smaller custom tag doesnt have the power to get through that plastic.
