I truly don't understand why they stopped including the IR Blasters, it is such an amazing feature.

Probably just like the headphone jack, it's somehow "modern to remove those old things"...

I don't understand how the IR blaster is a crucial feature. What do you even use it for? When you dropped your TV remote into the deepest depths of the couch?


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

Changing the tv channel while you're waiting at the doctor's office.

It's one less device. If you have multiple TV's in your home never have to worry about the remote

It is not and was never claimed to be.

But it is still a feature

It can be made to be the only remote you'll need at home. To control everything that takes remote input.

IR is still everywhere. TVs and legacy AV equipment. Home equipment like stand fans, dehumidifier and air purifier units, air conditioning.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

Lol the one whom wrote that article is hugely misinformed.
If one checks the top side of a Note10 plus its the axact same. And on theres its just the earpiece speaker.


When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

I could see it being a perk for robotics hobbyists. Granted, I don't think a megacorp like Samsung has the comparatively tiny niche customer base of specific-use hobbyists in mind when adding it, but, y'know, it might sway some potential buyers...
