    I'm trying to set up a remote app on my OP2 to control my sound system and apparently the OP2 doesn't have one, while the S6 seems to. Pretty disappointing, to be honest. Still love my OP2 but would have loved to have been able to adjust either the volume of my sound system or remotely control zune on my pc.

    Never check a device's features before buying so that you can complain about missing stuff...right :rolleyes:

    I didn't know I'd even need one- I still love my OP2. I was just letting people know, everyone is busy bitching about NFC and I thought this should be known as well.
    Yeah, just a bit annoying for me. Had no idea it was even needed to control my other devices. Oh well- I'll find another alternative.

    Seriously everyone knows Oneplus 2 doesn't have IR blaster. Stop creating unwanted threads.

    Theoretically,can the laser autofocus system be used as an IR blaster?

    The USB C port that isn't full USB C is a gimmick.
    I have a device with an IR blaster and has proved useful at times. Its one of those things that it, if you have you will use it.

    Not really I had IR on my M7 and used it once, then I realised the remote I have works much better then using your phome for it.

    USB Type-C is USB Type-C. Full USB? There's no gimmick anywhere. If you don't find reversible ends useful then you don't find reversible ends useful. It's simply a change in standards and will probably reach further fruition next year and has already been adapted by the Nexus 5X/6P. Not necessarily a huge deal, but it's hardly a gimmick.

    And what if you can't find the remote you can still turn appliance on, that is all its really for.
    Why would you want to use it instead of the remote the came with your appliance lol.:rolleyes:
