Did you pre-order or are you thinking about pre-ordering the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge? Well, if you’re still on the fence just a reminder that there’s one spec missing from the latest high-end Samsung smartphones.
While Samsung brought back some specs that fans were missing like the microSD card slot and the IP68 water/dust proofing, they took something that some fans absolutely love in the IR blaster. The port isn’t a deal-breaker for most people, but there’s some people who absolutely love the option to open that Peel Smart Remote app on their phone and change the channel on the TV.
There’s options for adding IR to your phone, but they’re quite frankly unwieldy and a pain to carry around. So, if you’re looking for the IR port on the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge unfortunately you’re out of luck.
Do you use the IR blaster on your smartphone? Is the removal a good thing or bad thing?
