    Android's Host Card Emulation feature doesn't support that specific tag type.
    However, I heard of someone successfully emulating Amiibos using a phone with a modded kernel, nothing was released though (something about legality concerns) and of course it will only work on a specific phone. Not really worth it for someone to create modded kernels for all sorts of phones just to emulate Amiibos when the tags are so cheap.
    For 30 bucks you can get 100 of them :)

    Well I spent the extra 10 for faster shipping, but I also got the pvc cards not the stickers so they were a few cents more per card. I also don't even need 50, just enough to make two full amiibo sets for botw with all the drops.

    Yeah, it's only 4 bucks for me, so isn't really that much, specially if i order cards for 30 bucks that'll be 70 cards inc shipping xD And 30 bucks is 7 bucks less than what i can order from without getting additional 25% import fee :P So for me it's worth it to buy in a bigger bulk since i also have a very bad paitence hehe.

    So think i'm gonna buy 37 cards to reach a "200 kroner" mark, as i can't spend too much as i'm hard saving up to a england trip in july. So can't be greedy here heh.
    But 37 cards is still nearly 4 times as much than my last order.

    It is possible, and everyone who says it isn't is wrong, but nobody wants to make it I guess. *As far as I know

    You can spoof Android NFC chip with root access temporarily so this could technically work.

    powertags do the same thing when you try to write them with tagmo, maybe because they aren't finalized and locked? idk...

    ntag215's are NOT cheap right now unless ordered from China. Go on eBay or Amazon, and they are over $1 each, even if you buy 100 at a time. That's not cheap in my eyes. They should only run about 50¢ or less a piece, but the ntag craze is probably inflating the prices.
