Ah I see what you mean; it's really buried in there. I was about to ask where exactly it's included with Samsung's keyboard but I found it when I long-pressed on the mic button and saw the emoji button in that list. I wish Samsung had just replaced the crappy emoticons that for some reason are prominently displayed on the main keyboard screen under the enter button... sigh
Thanks for the information! I wonder how many people know about the emojis tucked away like that haha
