Hi there,

I am using HTC phones, one of the reasons I choose it was it has IR blaster on some models, for example the old HTC One series and my current phone the Butterfly 2. My phone has randomly problem here and there ever since upgraded to Marshmallow, and it looks like h/w fault, but since it already out of warranty I must replace it. I need the IR blaster feature it is extremely useful, it replaced all my other remotes in my home, but unfortunately very few new phone has this feature built in, and look at the size of the IR blaster on say, Samsung and LG are so small, I seriously doubt it has receiver sensor as well, without the sensor it couldn't learn from other remote, I wonder if anyone has actual experience with any current phones with IR blaster built in ?
