Hi all. I wonder what is that think on the left side of the headphone jack? It looks like a infra red port but I don't think so right?

That's why you have the TV app. It acts as a remote for your TV.

Yes it's an IR transmitter. On stock roms (at least on vzw based one's I've tried) it's capable of controlling your tv and such through the appropriately named TV app.

Edit: when I first replied tapatalk wasn't showing the earlier edit specifying use via the TV app.
