Pretty much enjoying the benefits of having the Note 3 to remote the airconditioning, TV and projector where I live and work.
They are useful.

How about using just one remote (phone) instead of using various remotes for TV, ac, setup box etc etc ?

I'd rather use the actual remote my 80 inch T.V. came with. More options. Simpler. Less annoying. Physical buttons.

Yea...with physical buttons...I can use most of the remote without looking at it.
Cant really do that with a touch screen.

That's why I like Sony. They don't particularly boast about it, but their TVs can be operated by any Android device, with their app. They communicate via wifi...

I'm not particularly a big fan of Sony, but you would think that all modern TVs would be able to do this already.

jeez, I'd rather buy a phone that has built in IR Blaster than using these paid devices that will cost you extra dollars and on the other hand it is annoying using those. Just my opinion.

IR Blaster is one of the coolest features for phones nowadays. Half the time I can't find my remote, but damn if I can't find my phone.
