    Just bring the Amiiqo and try it on the phone, see if it works before you buy.

    Problem is that OP must install the apk on the phone to see if it works properly, but I think that amiiqo is compatible with various chipsets used in the most smartphones.
    There is a compatibility list on this thread at Maxconsole: http://www.maxconsole.com/maxcon_forums/threads/290963-Amiiqo-Android-Phone-Compatibility
    Try getting the NFC chipset used in the target smartphone that you want and compare to those used in the listed models or if you're lucky you'll find the phone model itself.
    Only to add (since I didn't read this thread yet), I've tested amiiqo 1.2 apk succesfully on a Samsung Galaxy S4 and Zenfone 2 Deluxe, and both devices doesn't accept some re-writtable NFC tags used in brazilian payment cards used in public transports systems.

    There is (or a gateway soon to be released/shipping on 11th December, that if the date does not change ...yet again) an NFC Reader Writer for the amiiqo, it about £22 ...so a little cheaper than a NFC phone.

    You can check the amiiqo site for a list of resellers, but playmods will ship worldwide for an extra £4.99.

    It seems Amiiqo team has changed the name to N2 Elite and not only that, it has released a USB Reader/Writer. Has anyone tested it?

    Too bad. It didnt work. It seems the Amiiqo team have to fix their Windows/OSX program.
