TCool, 27 Aug 2017So you don't have time to go to the drawer but you have enough time to struggle to the setting... moreIt's significant because device is expensive and they had it before and even cheap htc has it.... If you find it useless, no need to offend other people; you probably won't even buy the phone; you don't respect your money; because if you did, you would want it all for 1K...you're just too cheap for that phone.
TCool, 27 Aug 2017So you don't have time to go to the drawer but you have enough time to struggle to the setting... moreYeah, let's struggle searching to download the correct remote profile ONCE. That's like not even 2 minutes.
I already do daily 1-hour workouts. There's no need for me to needlessly walk 7 meters for a little exercise. Thank you for your concern.

I don't believe that, the most you can use simultaneously is two or three and as you said "universal remote" means you can use that one universal remote control to all your 10 appliances. LOL!
And stop messing around public appliances, they are not yours. Respect people in hospitals, gym and public places that don't like what channel you like.

By the way, be careful cause your fats are sleeping without moving all the way to the remote control location. That's a form of simple exercise, rather than sitting there and moving only your finger with the phone.
Conclusion: It is not a significant function...
Still battery capacity below 3300mah,old quick charge 2.0 and the price like you're trying so hard to be like....APPLE WANNABE?? BIG NO SAMESUNG!! with super amoled and 2k screen resolution,i bet the batery life can't be stay more than 3 to 4 hours for heavy users,at least put 4000mah battery on your latest note series! God! when SAMEsung want to learns from their stupid mistakes?!! No wonder many customers switch to chinese real smartphones such as huawei,xiaomi,oppo and vivo with affordable price with latest/reasonable specs.

This phone lacks traditional samsung design. I sense some Chinese touch in the ergonomics which is an disappointment.
The best design by Samsung till now is S6 edge+ !!!

Or maybe you enjoy messing around the company's appliances by using your smartphone, instead of the dedicated remote controller that is kept for official use only. That is not good. They are company property and it is not polite to mess around with them.
Pity on you...
uzername, 26 Aug 2017no significant use for you only. not because it doesn't apply to you means it won't apply to t... moreIt is only you who use phone to control appliances. All those appliances you mentioned come with remote controller out of the box. Why do we need to make things complicated by using smartphone to control appliances? Just grab the TV remote controller and in less than second you will enjoy your favorite shows rather than struggling with your phone setting to control the TV and afterwards change the setting to control your other appliances.
Conclusion: IR is not beneficial in smartphone, it will only make your life complicated.
Now i just said that Galaxy Note will not make anymore note phones because Note7's battery explodes but now they made Note8 then that Note8 will also have exploding battery!! The humans of 2017...

Peter, 26 Aug 2017I am trying to get one; blue + snapdragon + dual sim = impossible. Why everyone sells exynos; ... moreNo. In America, the Snapdragon version is sold. But exynos are sold in my country and countries other than America. Exinis is faster and better than Snap
sh, 26 Aug 2017but is it gonna work in the dark ?On my Galaxy S8+, the iris scanner works in complete darkness. Can't wait to get my hands on the Note 8!

I would think the heartbeat sensor is something we can do without. Never used it, especially if you have a smartwatch for that.
Not impressed neither with S8 nor with Note 8. S7 edge is still the preferred choice.
wow look at that array in the back. why not vertical?
I wonder if next year they put 3 cameras, and still arranging it like that.
Did samsung not hear so many people and reviewers about that terrible fingerprint placement?
Oh i know, so that people have bigger chance to drop their note8, and samsung will get more money.
