    Could anyone recommend me a smart phone that I can use with the libre2 sensor please?

    I’m getting confusing info from Abbott. I understand the phone needs to be NFC enabled

    A very quick search on their website directed me to this page
    https://freestylediabetes.co.uk/landing/smartphone-compatibility-guide

    I see that it starts with which OS versions which I think is the most important thing (as long as it supports NFC) .
    They also list some phones but I have used LibreLink (the app that scans the sensor) with phones that are not listed here so suspect this is a list of the phones they have tested - there are so many phones around nowadays that it is almost impossible for them to test every single one.

    I had problems scanning with my previous phone a Samsung A21s. I now have iPhone SE and it works fine

    Good luck
