Samsung Galaxy S4 Active

Channel5
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.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active

  • 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

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active review: Waterproof S4 makes waves

CNET
7 October 2013
  • Summary: Choose the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active for its sporty style, fast internals, and underwater camera fun, but pass if you're an image snob or seek a truly rugged phone.
  • Pros: Samsung's Galaxy S4 Active has a sporty design, takes strong daylight photos, and delivers the majority of Android 4.2 features. It also has a great speakerphone.
  • Cons: Aqua mode is fixed focus, the S4 Active takes weak low light shots, and the phone isn't as durable as its name suggests. Its 8-megapixel camera is lower resolution than the original Galaxy S4's.

  • 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

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active Review: In Depth

Recombu
24 August 2013
  • 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
