    Default New S5 Active - what's on the top edge of the case?

    Hi - on my third Samung, now rocking the Active model.

    Curious: Look down at the top edge of the phone, with the headphone jack on the right. On the left side is a small hole and what looks like a tiny lens. Anyone know the function of these?

    Great phone, but I do miss the Quick glance function.

    TIA.

    It is the IR blaster and the hole is the secondary microphone.

    Ah, thank you!

    Note to others whose eyesight might be as poor as mine - there is a tiny sticker over the IR blaster that you may want to remove.
