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.
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.
Pros: IP67 Certified, Good overall performance, Beautiful display, Removable battery
Cons: Lower-res camera, LCD display drains more battery, Plasticky build, No shockproofing

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.
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.
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
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.
Pros: IP67 certified, Attractive tough phone, Good battery life
Cons: Weaker Full HD screen, Hardware buttons feel bad, Heavy/cumbersome
