Hello all,I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy A14 5G but not seeing the option to enable NFC under settings-> connections. Screenshot below.

The specifications of the model shows it is an NFC enabled phone. 

Do I need to enable the option some other way?

Has anyone else noticed this and figured a solution?

Thanks for your response @JAMES4578 I bought this phone in India and turns out the specs on Samsung India doesn't list NFC. I had checked gsmarena specs before buying 😞 it wasn't clear that there were non-NFC versions as well.

Either way that explains why I do not see NFC option. Thanks for your help.

It should be in the drop-down list. Swipe down and swipe down again. This will full screen the notification menu. Swipe left and should be there.Screenshot_20230312-125243_Samsung Members.jpg

@Brostradamus  If NFC is supported it  will be available via Settings-NFC and Contactless payments.  May  need to toggle it on. https://gb.mobileinto.com/Samsung-Galaxy-A14/   See more information here https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/mobile-devices/what-is-nfc-and-how-do-i-use-it/ 

whilst it listed in that link that is the US site,  sometimes there can be regional variations. However it is also listed in information for UK on this site

Oh right, yes that would explain it. Seems NFC is not supported on your handset.
