    Recently bought an S4 I9505 and was testing out its IR blaster and it seems to have a very short range i.e hardly 3 ft for me, I tested it out with both samsung LG TVs and it also needs to be angled directly infront of the power buttons of the TV (which is where the receiver is located I gusss) to function. Why is that so cause my friend also has an s4 and it had a pretty good range of about 6-8 ft
    P.S checked for any protective sheets on the blaster but didnt found any and I have tried with both Anymote universal app and peel remote app if it helps

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome to Android Central! Is the phone in a case? If so, try taking the case off.
