    I miss the IR blaster. That is one of the reasons why I hesitated when i decided to giving up my mate 9 for the Note 8. I must admit, I did not use it that much, but when I did, it sure came in handy.

    A friend of mine lost his remote and just watched whatever channel it was on because he didnt want to get up. Then I started channel surfing and he was like HOW?!?!?!?!? he had an iphone. I had a Note4 that's how.

    Note 4 was my last Note, before moving on to the V20. I miss the IR blaster.

    I used to, but I have a Samsung TV now so I can still connect and control from my phone.

    I still keep my Note Edge and Note 4 charged all the time so I can grab one of them and use as my remote. That's the only time I use them though.

    I keep my Note 4 charged, or new battery, and keep it by my living room spot. Works fine on wifi and can change channels as needed. Gives my 8 a breather.

    The Mate 10 has it. Wonder if the s9 will.

    Yep, I'm not interested in counting my heart rate or scanning my irises - I loved the IR blaster.

    (I also loved Group Play(?) - where you could place Samsung devices next to each other and they would form one big screen with stereo sound. Samsung killed that too.)

    They took the IR, replaceable battery and MHL. And gave us glass and "cool" styling that is invisible because of my folio case. Thanks a bunch.

    I never used it. To me, it was solution in search of a problem.

    Totally miss it too.

    I know it wasn't overly popular but I used it daily.
    Sit down after a long day to watch TV and then be like...
    Where's the remotes!?
    I never used to have to do that.

    I have Google Fiber and all of our phones work as remote. I had a Note 4, but did not use the IR blaster much, was a nice feature.

    Miss it too.. I still have a htc one m7 at home for this.. Unfortunately Samsung (like other oems) just noticed by collecting user data that people don't used it that much and decided to removed it to save money.

    It's a pity that such a useful feature was removed from the phones.

    Still not missing mine.. especially since I have DirecTV now. I control TV through my Fire Stick or my Apple TV. IR blaster isn't useful at all for me.

    I have mine still courtesy of my LG V20 that I rotate with my Note 8. The other day it came in handy while at the doctor's office. There was some mind numbing talk show on and then presto, ESPN.

    Kept my V20 for the IR Blaster and the Quad DAC. I'll sell the Note 8 to get the Note 9, but I'll still have the V20.

    Why do they keep taking inexpensive features while adding (for me) useless stuff like iris recognition. I miss scrapbook and S Finder as well. Small, inexpensive features I used daily. This might be my last Note and I've had them all except 1 & 7.
