Are you missing an IR blaster on the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge?


Samsung giveth, Samsung taketh away - that's the moral of the story with the Galaxy S6 and its successor the Galaxy S7. What the company gave us with the S7 and its sidekick S7 edge is a premium design like the S6, but a waterproof certification for the chassis and a memory slot for storage expansion - two features that the S6 was devoid of.

Samsung taketh, too, as the infrared sensor at the top of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge is now gone in the S7 and S7 edge. This IT blaster is convenient to command your house electronics like TVs, home stereo, and even AC units, so eschewing it in the S7 may have irked some users who expected to have it in the latest and greatest Samsung handsets. 

That is why we wanted to ask you whether you are missing an IR blaster on the S7 and S7 edge that may save you from always looking for the remote in the couch cushions, or in the kids' bedroom.
