Samsung TV remotes- Awful delay


Active Member
My mother and i both own Samsung 5 series Tvs from the last year ish. They both have the same remote and they're both awful. As in, press a button, then about 3/4 of a second later something happens. They're both exactly the same, why on earth in 2015 aren't the remotes absolutely instantaneous?

Are other TV manufacturers any better? May switch if so.

I noticed that too,my tv is smart so you can realy notice the lag when trying to type something in youtube.I think its just because IR is just slow.

The new smart remotes work over bluetooth and they work instantly.
