Which Phones Have IR Blasters - Samsung
Here is a list of phones that have IR Blasters in them. The phones that I have on this particular list are the most common Samsung phones with Ir blasters. You can find these phones just about anywhere. For some reason, Samsung stopped adding this feature in their phones. I thought that this was one of there best features that set them apart from the iPhone.
Here is a list of those Samsung phones that have IR blasters.
- Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini
- Samsung Galaxy S4 Active
- Samsung Galaxy Note 3
- Samsung Galaxy Mega
- Samsung Galaxy S5 and S5 Active
- Samsung Galaxy S5 Duos and S5 Mini
- Samsung Galaxy Note 4
- Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Active
- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
[Tip#1] Phones with IR blasters are great for controlling all electronics in your house.
I like phones which have IR blasters on them mainly because I am able to control everything in my house with my phone. I can control the TV and the cable box with just my phone. I can also use my phone which has an IR blaster to control my surround sound so I happily do not have to get off my couch control everything in the living room.
[Tip#2] Phones with IR blasters are much better than using phones with WiFi.
I like the IR blaster over the wifi because the wifi is very slow and usually does not work worth a darn. But the phones which have IR blasters in them are pretty much 100% reliable and are very fast and responsive. This makes it much easier and less frustrating when I am primarily using it as a remote control for the cable box.
[Tip #3] You do not need service to use a phone with IR blasters as a remote control for your house.
They do not need to have phone service to use the IR blaster which is on the phone. You can have an old phone without service and still use it to control your entire house

Which Phones Have IR BLasters - HTC
Unfortunately for HTC lovers. They do not offer a lot of options when it comes to phones which have IR blasters. But they do at least offer a few different phones with IR blasters. HTC included the IR blasters in their phones from 2013-2016 but then for some reason, they stopped including the IR blaster on their phones.
This company is one of the more popular phone companies currently on the market. They compete for what is left over from the Samsung and iPhone market. But they are a pretty big player inside that small particular market.
Here is a list of those HTC phones that have IR blasters.
- HTC One M7
- HTC Max
- HTC One M8
- HTC One M9
- HTC One M9+
