    S6 had it too. Thinking of picking up a s6 refurb. Nothing in new model appeals to me as much as loss of ir blaster. I have one in gear 2 but the software only allows 1 tv at a time and has very limited options. On Off volu and channel are about it.

    Can't you use bluetooth instead to control a tv if the tv has that feature?

    No. I control random tvs in restaurants and bars i visit. They often don't mind if I ask. One place has a tv at every table but all different brands of tv. They don't have all the remotes. I also control an ac I lost the remote for and when wife has remote at home i use phone. Many many uses for ir blaster. I also use it at work to control several different presentation projectors.

    In that one hour you spent with it, does it feel like a worthy upgrade? Yes or no?

    The phone feels solid. It's definitely a upgrade. I think for me, the battery life is a significant difference. S7 edge will have note like battery.


    Camera is best on the market.

    Has a sd card slot.

    Water resistance.

    Better battery life.

    More premium feel.

    If those appeal to you it's a worthy upgrade

    Speakers were decent. Slightly better than the s6.
    Touch wiz is better but I'm not a fan of the white motivation toggles.

    Neither of the S7 have usb c even tho it is a convenient. No single manufacturer actually takes advantage of the data to transfer speeds or the charging type c is known for. Plus makes it easier for gear Vr use.

    The device is not 5.7 in it is 5.5in

    Multi color led yes and IR no. Most tvs have smart apps now or apps for cable providers or game consoles.

    When you say it feels heavier does that mean it's thicker?

    Does it have wireless charging?

    Tell us about the fingerprint scanner.

    Does have wireless charging. Both standards. Fingerprint scanner is a bit larger however alot faster. And the device is a little bit thicker but a lot less camera bump. And the curved back makes it feel better in hand.

    It's slightly thicker but it feels way more dense. It's like they jam packed the whole device and there is no empty space on the inside.

    I will say the 3A charging on the 6P is pretty awesome. Goes pretty quick .

    No usb c is unfortunate. It's so easy. My kid broke my s6 edge plus trying to charge it. Wouldn't of happened with usb c. Is the battery removable?

    Crap, it'd heavier.

    Same thing apple did with the 6 compared to 6s.

    Crap,

    Crap, seriously that's crap.

    A fat dude like me like my phone light So I can get it out of my Jeans since my gut hangs in the way.

    Gotta hit the gym.

    What were you hoping for, 5.7"?

    If you want that, get the Note. For me that's just too big. 5.5" was what I was waiting for for a while. I'm super psyched.
