OTA updates are most likely going to work in most of the devices bought at our website and they should not change system sate ex. removing multi-language and google apps.

However, there are devices where OTA will not work, we usually inform about it on the product page, in the "ROM" section. If you'll not be able to make automatic updates, you may always try to make manual system update, which may require some skills or tools (ex. ADB) installed on your computer. It may also remove system customisations installed before ex. multi-language support. For more info you may ask us a question from product page.

NFC will most likely work on the most of the devices bought on our website. 

Exception are some, but not all, devices sold with unlocked bootloader, due to Global rom installation ex. Xiaomi. Some other devices with Global rom installed on original rom, and unlocked bootloader shouldn't have problems with NFC payments - ex. Realme devices. Root can also cause NFC banking applications not work, but our store in current time don't sell rooted devices at all (state for January 2024).

If you have doubts if your device will have NFC payments working you should ask us every time by product questions available at product page or checks questions of the other customers at the bottom of the product page.

Witness a flawless display that commands your full attention. With Touch Sense, NEX 3 ushers in a new age of smart phones. Its 6.89-inch flexible display delights with cinematic wonder, while the almost vertical edge screens expand into infinity. The E3 OLED display filters out harmful blue light at low power consumption, bringing this tantalizing view without eyestrain. This is unibody simplicity at its most impressive, offering a tremendous visual impact without the extra bulk.

Note: Measured diagonally, the screen size is 6.89 inches in the full rectangle, however, the display’s actual screen size is slightly smaller. In accordance with general industry practice, ‘full-view screen’ refers to phones with narrow bezels and a high screen-to-body ratio.

Note: 6.89-inch is the screen size measured diagonally in a full rectangle, and the actual screen viewing area is slightly smaller.
