S4 had it. It was new feature and I used it rarely.
S5 had it and I used it more often.
S6 has it and I use it every day.
After S4, S5, S6 I am used to using infrared interface and now Samsung removes it!?Seriously?
If S8 will not have infrared interface then I must look for HTC's, LG's, Sony, Lenovo etc flagships.
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2016more than 99% people never uses the IR blaster lolI use it from time to time.
AXC, 22 Feb 2016Why, why, whyyyyyyyy did the remove the IR port? I have all the remote controls in my house on... moreTo AXC:
You win some you lose some. Hush. They brought back features that many persons complained about but took away another great fearure in the process, the IR remote control.
I have a S5 and it's working quite fine plus I do find the IR remote to be handy so I too am sticking to my S5 and if it should stop working...who knows maybe I will get another S5.
S7, 22 Feb 2016How can you say that this downgrade is actually better? Please do explain, because I'm serious... morethe total number of pixels is less,but the size of each pixel is more.
This will result better image due to the entry of more light but the zoom quality may decrease
What about 3d touch ; force touch display will be included in this machine are not friends
Does this phone really lack an Infrared Port??? I Compared it with S7 Edge and it said on both phones that it didn't have an Infrared Port. Some of you might find it unnecessary but i really like that option. Real shame if it doesn't have one.
S7, 22 Feb 2016How can you say that this downgrade is actually better? Please do explain, because I'm serious... moreWhy don't u see what lies beneath the megapixels . It has a1.7 aperture . Larger pixels . What else do u desire
