Features Beware

ActiveDisappointment, Samsung
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: I got this phone for my husband because of the ruggedness of it, he is a tough guy!! Well, the special features (aqua mode, shock resistant, and dust resistant) are not covered under warranty! If you take a pic underwater like we did and the water seal fails you are out of luck, not covered!! Why advertise and put in the directions to use the phone underwater and not cover it in the manufacturers warranty?
  • Pros: Bright display
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations

How can an International phone have Qualcomm LTE

Almost Golfer, Amazon
29 May 2014
  • Summary: I received the phone and took it overseas the next day only to find out that it is not exactly an international version. I can't get LTE because the LTE is Qualcomm which is CDMA so it is limited to 3G . I found written in fine print on the side of the phone "Qualcomm 4G" which doesn't match what was advertised by the seller. I'm disappointed and not impressed by the false claims and specs written for the product by the seller.

Fragile, not "active" at all

Joe75, Samsung
10 April 2014
  • Summary: This phone is marketed as an "active" phone. Instead, it is incredibly fragile. It dropped one foot from a kneeling position (not from a moving car) and the screen shattered. It is hundreds of dollars to fix. Spend your money elsewhere. Never had a phone so fragile.
  • Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations

No 4G in America

Wilmer Charles "SteelPantherArmy", Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: It is not listed as an international version phone, but the one I received was. It is apparent from the other reviews that they have collected these phones from multiple sources. I had to send my phone back.

not that good!

Jude, Amazon
16 December 2013
  • Summary: It keeps shutting off when it is hot and when i put in my pocket. The phone freezes when i use it when it is snowing or raining. I am not that satisfied with it. But it did not come with a warranty. So i guess i have to deal with it. I called the manufacturer they said it is not normal for it to freeze. I called the seller many times to explain the situation no one pick up.

Active 4 isn't very tolerant

DisappointedwithActive4, Samsung
28 October 2013
  • Summary: As a smart phone, the active is what you would expect. However, don't assume it is rugged. However, any corner shot will result in cracked screen. IT IS NOT SHOCK RESISTANT ! ! ! ! ! Go into it with your eyes open.
  • Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, not shock resistant
