NZtechfreak:jbmoocs:NZtechfreak:jbmoocs:Damager:jbmoocs: How good is the IR blaster on S4. I've given up trying to use the S3 as a reliable RC via Wireless it's not very reliable. Does it just work out of the box or is it fiddly?
I'll give it a whizz tonight.
Thanks Damager. Looking forward toyour review.
I've been using it on mine since I got it - brilliant with my LG TV! I'd be careful not to update the WatchOn app though, when I did that it broke the app for me and I had to rollback to the older version. I'm using it at a distance of about 5-6m from my TV without any issues whatsoever, so seems very reasonable to me (the HTC One remote range seems the same).
Thanks NZtech. Good to know it has been reliable for you might have to sell the S3 soon then. How about bluetooth connectivity in the car does it pick up contacts/music without issues?
Don't use BT in my car so no idea sorry!
Enjoyed the remote a lot last night - PS3 controller and TV remote MIA as we went to catch some Netflix, I said to my Fiance "I'll find the TV remote, you get the PS3 remote?". She agreed, forgetting I could use the phone (actually either phone, the HTC One IR blaster works well too), she was gutted when she got up from looking under the couch to see me grinning and turning on the TV with my phone :)
Totally worthwhile expenditure of relationship currency.
I'm sure it would be fine works like a charm with S3, seriously you should invest in BT in the car its brilliant use of the phone and chicks dig it very much for its practical use in the same way as your last quote ;)
