Summary: I love my phone. Aside for the part of the Android system that I had to update myself, because it is an unlocked version, it is waterproof if you take good care of it. Got through snow, rain and oncertainly in a pool. No problem here. Of course you have to make sure the back is clean, properly locked and also the USB is clean and locked too. The rubber gets over used because you have to open it daily to charge. But nothing that bothers you or doesn't make the phone work.
Excerpt: This phone is very durable. I have dropped it on concrete a few times and is not cracked at all. UI is almost exactly the same as S4. Although it is only 8 megapixel, it takes great pictures. Power saving mode works very well. One problem is the usb port cover breaks easily. Everything is easy to repair. I like the physical buttons a lot more than the touch buttons samsung usualy uses. Audio jack is loose compared to other phones.
Pros: great UI, good camera, screen resolution, water resistant, doesnt crack easily, volume button can control light
Cons: usb port cover breaks easily, paint scratches easily, loose audio jack, AT&T model doesnt include headphones, battery has to be removed to change sim card

Summary: Flabbergasted by the processing capability of the S4 Active. The feel when you hold it is just great. I also like the fact it is factory unlocked since I move around a lot I want to be able to access any GSM network anywhere I go. Great phone,acceptable price. No problemo so far with it.
