Samsung Galaxy S4 Active
4 October 2014
Summary: Despite the minor differences in the camera and screen, this is basically a sporty, more daring version of the Galaxy S4. If you spend a lot of time outdoors but desire a handset which looks fantastic and performs brilliantly, then this is your ideal choice. In terms of power there’s little that can match it on the market right now, and the ability to withstand the assault of water and dust is a valuable bonus.
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy line of smartphones is a juggernaut; like the iPhone, the next generation will sell well based simply on brand loyalty, trust and familiarity. Even so, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has a lot to offer, and though I wasn't overwhelmed with love for the Galaxy S III, the S4 is seriously tempting me.
Pros: Huge display in a not so huge phone, excellent camera, removable battery, entertaining new features.
Cons: Feature overload, only 9 gigs of internal storage on 16 gig model, still slippery.

Summary: There’s no denying Samsung have been the success story of the Android platform. Even before even Ice-Cream Sandwich was released, they had the flagship phone of the Android fleet with the Galaxy SII, followed by the Galaxy SIII and now the S4. There have been some huge contenders in 2013 with specs advancing at a rapid rate, and now that waterproof and dustproof designs are becoming more aesthetically pleasing, it’s hardly surprising that Samsung have followed the...
Pros: Rugged, Ringer volume is particularly loud compared to other devices, 4G speed is faster and more consistent that S4
Cons: Battery life appears to be lower than S4 with identical use, Only 9GB storage is available out of the box, The protector over the power MicroUSB is difficult to remove without fingernails
Excerpt: Aaron goes in-depth with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active , one of the new members in the Galaxy S 4 line. It offers a 1.9 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 5-inch 1080p HD display (LCD), 8-megapixel shooter with 1080p HD recording, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, 4G LTE, a 2,600 mAh battery, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz. It's available at AT&T for $199.99 - the same cost as the Galaxy S 4 (16 GB).
Summary: Con la ligera diferencia en precio que hay entre el Galaxy S4 y el S4 Active (en el momento del lanzamiento el S4 valía 699 euros y el Active 619 euros), es difícil encontrar una razón para no recomendar el Active. Podría decirse que es más bonito (depende del gusto de cada uno, claro), sin duda es más resistente , y las diferencias en la cámara son insignificantes si no eres muy quisquilloso con los megapíxeles.
Pros: Su resistencia, Software y Hardware, Diseño y acabados
Cons: Precio elevado, La garantía no cubre fallos bajo el agua, La pantalla y la cámara pierden calidad
Summary: The Galaxy S4 Active is a great phone with outstanding phone specs features in terms of processor, screen, camera and with all this it is also waterproof and dustproof. This is just great to have. This follows the Galaxy S4 success and will be a great top end and durable phone for any active person.
Pros: Durable and waterproof with outstanding screen and features
Conclusion: The ultimate question at the end of the day is this: how much do you need a rugged, waterproof device? Samsung is to be applauded for trying to make sure that the Active provides an experience as close to the original S4 as possible, but it’s hard to overlook the hardware differences. It’s a more awkward device to use on a day to day basis, even if that waterproofing does come in handy from time to time.
Pros: IP67 certified, Attractive tough phone, Good battery life
Cons: Weaker Full HD screen, Hardware buttons feel bad, Heavy/cumbersome
