I know this is an old thread, but I just got an S5, and I have the same question. Many digital cameras, including the one on the S5, can "see" infrared light; it shows up as a bright purple color. Try it sometime; point your TV remote at your phone's camera, and you should see it light up when you push a button. Knowing this, shouldn't it be possible to create an app that uses the camera to learn new codes?

This sounds interesting..

However, to create such an app, one must consider the maximum scanning rate of the camera sensor. Which I suspect isn't as high as the IR pulse frequency. If this happens to be true, the feat would turn out impossible.
