    Question Phones w. Environment Sensors

    Hi folks,

    I see the Galaxy S4 has environment sensors (temperature/pressure/humidity), plus there's Thermodo (at some point), but are there any other phones with environment sensors?

    TIA

    Yes, apparently S Health can access them. Presumably other apps will follow.

    Oddly it's mentioned in very few reviews A Closer Look at The Nine Sensors inside Samsung’s Galaxy S IV | Android News - AndroidHeadlines.com

    I think the Nexus before this one had a barometer, most have battery and CPU thermometers but these are no use for ambient. Should be good long run for distributed climate data.

    In fact the guy behind WeatherSignal does mention at least the S3 Big Sources: Sensor Networks Will Make Data Bigger & Cheaper - James Robinson | Big Data Republic
