An added functionality for those who love their Galaxy S IV AND their latest Samsung 85-in Ultra HD OLED TV is its built-in remote control capability. Furthermore, aside from the built-in feature, plenty of applications are already in Google Play for use with other phones that also have this feature. The difference with the S IV is that it does not need an application to work with supported televisions.
Samsung first used this technology on the Galaxy Note 8.0, which was called the Samsung Video discovery. With the S 4, it has been optimized for the device and the Korean company even renamed it to ‘WatchOn'. Other non-Galaxy S IV fans may think that all of these "new" features that are found on the just-launched smartphone are spinoffs of originals or have already been introduced by other manufacturers before but Samsung stands by on its conviction that the company developed these from scratch.
The App is still a work-in-progress. Things are not very smooth, and there are no settings or other features available yet. There was noticeable lag zooming in and out in the app. However, actions were happening near-instantly between the PC and my Android phone.
