IR blasters are starting to become the norm on Android phones, which means you can control your home theater system or devices in other rooms in your house. The LG G2 comes with not only an IR blaster, but you will also find the Quick Remote app pre-installed. With Quick Remote, you can add your TV, cable/satellite box, AV receiver, DVD player, and more, so that you can control them via your G2. You can even setup different components for different rooms of your house such as your bedroom, kitchen, den, and office.
Quick Remote is a little limited in that you won’t find built-in programming guide information like Samsung’s WatchON or HTC TV, but it’s easy to setup and it works well. Hit the break for my video showing you how it all works, and be sure to check out our other LG G2 guides.
