Poor NFC Range

I'm have a T-Mo G2 on stock 4.2.2. The NFC range is extremely poor. It's like less than 1mm. I've tried NFC tags and various tap to pay terminals and it only reads when pressed hard against the back of the phone right on the LG logo after several tries. Has anyone else had the same experience?

It'll read from a few mm with a case on my phone. 1mm seems a bit small, especially when you have trouble with tap and pay, but all in all NFC is a technology that assumes near physical contact. But yours sounds less sensitive than it should be.

From experience range is actually a lot greater than sgs5. Tested on Nfc bluetooth headset and while sgs5 works only from the back. G2 will initiate pairing from both sides of the headset.

My Samsung GS3 works from about 1.5cm away. I will try 4.4.2 and see how it goes.
