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.
Summary: In its vanilla offering, Samsung’s GALAXY S4 was already one of the best smartphones in the market. However, being the innovators that they are, the Korean powerhouse decided to use the GALAXY S4 as a base and come up with spin-offs that would cater to different users.

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...
Pros: Huge display in a not so huge phone, excellent camera, removable battery, entertaining new features.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active Review: Finally a Phone for Klutzes
2 October 2013
Summary: Waterproof and rugged phones have come and gone for years, but the Galaxy S4 Active is the first waterproof Smartphone that makes no compromises. If you’ve dropped your phone more than one time in the toilet, boy is this for you.
Pros: Finally a phone you can take to the bathroom, or um, the beach. Neat Aqua mode takes photos under water. Packs in all of the same features as the Galaxy S4, but offers a tougher form-factor.

Pros: IP67 certified, Attractive tough phone, Good battery life
Cons: Weaker Full HD screen, Hardware buttons feel bad, Heavy/cumbersome
Review Samsung Galaxy S4 Active GT-I9295 Smartphone
21 August 2013
Summary: Refined water lover. Samsung slips a 5-inch TFT screen with Full HD resolution into a metal frame and fills the remaining space with all the good inner components from their flagship Galaxy S4. Then they IP certify it -- and voilà, the new outdoor smartphone. A superior quality S4? Can it be true?
Pros: IP certification, TFT with stable image from many angles, Full HD, Excellent connectivity options, Well thought-through controls under water, The camera takes decent pictures underwater. Also, the metal frame gives the smartphone a high-quality feel.
Cons: Throttling SoC when under load for an extended period, Speaker is spine-chilling at high volume, Middle-of-the-road battery life, A cover for the headphone jack would have been great. The battery lid's seal should have stretched to the camera and speaker.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is being offered to a small niche of people who require their smartphones to be as rugged as they are. We know there are people out there who are literally being bombarded by water, mud, dust and everything in between on a regular basis, and something like the S4 Active...
