Google recently indicated that devices running Android 4.3 and older will not be allowed to make tap-and-go payments via Google Wallet. The change goes into effect April 14. Moving forward, Android devices will need to run Android 4.4 KitKat and up to make NFC-based mobile payments. Additionally, Google said mobile payments will no longer be possible from the Samsung Galaxy Note III, HTC Evo 4G LTE, and the Google Nexus 7 (2012). Google did not provide a reason for making the change.

So that just leaves us with ISIS?
We still have Google wallet but they require 4.4+ because they are pushing for the cloud secure element. That's if you want to use your phone, if you still want to Google wallet but don't have 4.4+ you could still use the wallet card.
competition is good but google wallet is GARBAGE!
ISIS give you 1$ cashback everytime you make a purchase (transaction).
ISIS give you 20% cashback using Well Fargo Visa.
what does google wallet give you? NOTHING!
