There is some good news for those with older models. The new TecTiles2 are backward compatible which means they will work on the Samsung Galaxy S III and other Samsung devices that support NFC. The Samsung TecTiles2 come in a package of 5 for $15 and are faster than the original stickers. They can be ordered online from the sourcelink.

Could't you simply do most of those tasks a lot quicker without using these TechTiles?

Well it depends on the task. I think these are made to automate certain tasks. Although I don't see a use for alot of things it may be useful for some. Example. I forget to set my alarm sometimes. This would be helpuf for that. Just program a tectile to set alarm and place it near bed where phone will charge. Tap and alarm will set. THis could really be helpful if one nigh you come home really tired, drunk, lazy and dont want to deal with setting the alarm and jus want to go to bed. Tap, Set, Goodnight.

Yes, just tap and alarm will set. When you come home and feel really tired, drunk, lazy and don't want to deal with setting the alarm and just want to go to bed, you can tap it. But don't you think that it's not so useful, because we already have Google Now, for example just go to Google Now and say "Google, set an alarm for 7am", and there you have it, the alarm is set. Google, Say, Set, Goodnight. Have a nice dream........

They are really useful at times: 1. Program a techtile to turn on/off bluetooth. Then u stick the techtile somewhere convenient in ur car and Presto ! whenever u put ur phone at that point bluetooth with switch on, and off when u leave ! Its useful when u dont have to look at ur phone while driving. 2. Similarly, u can program a techtile to turn on the wifi and switch off the data when u enter your house and keep your phone at your usual place. 3. It will also set an alarm (in case u forgot) when u keep the phone at the desk next to bed before going to sleep. (stick the techtile on the desk next to ur bed) 4. Set your phone to silent mode when you sit at your desk at your work. These are just few instances how I use my device with techtiles. Its really about how u use it. Not a bad investment IMO

its just meant for you to have access to change setting on your phone automatically. lets say you get in your car if you have a tec tile there you can pre register that tile to turn on your bluetooth so it can sync with your cars bluetooth stereo, turn the volume on your phone to full blast for incoming calls, and also have your phone go into car mode. one example.
