cheap android phones with ir blasters?

618 141 December 22, 2017 at 10:59 PM
I have an old galaxy s5 that i am using as a remote right now.. basically it turns my tv.. and i can control the chromecast connected to it and play Netflix, hulua and plex.

i am hoping to grab 3 more phones.. basically one for each room with a tv for this.

I have checked swappa and an old galaxy s5 goes for $80-100... i am wondering any other older phone models with an ir blaster that i should look at that might be cheaper?

This might help also never used one before my remote apps use wifi 😁. Though u prolly are using WiFi yourself and not the blaster.
Btw I don't post alot so I have no idea how to meta that link and it's sleepy time. The link is for a urlhasbeenblocked Universal IR Appliances Wireless Infrared Remote Controller Adapter Zazaremote for OTG Android Phone.

After reading your post again I'm am 100% certain you are not using your phones ir blaster, just wifi u can use most current-ish smart phones for that. Or cheapo Amazon firetabs. Be warned though Google and Amazon r at war so the Chromecast and firetabs might have future issues.
