The Near Field Communication (NFC) feature on your smartphone lets you take advantage of making contactless payments for your purchases. Most OEMs do not provide NFC support on their smartphones these days to reduce the manufacturing costs. Also, a lot of countries use scannable QR codes as the preferred mode for contactless payments and thus including an NFC chip does not seem to be a good idea for the smartphone vendors.
