Now if they made S4 Activ with specs and features similar to the S4, then everyone would want it and make them regret buying the original S4 in the first place, but i think they will make it less powerful with smaller battery compared to the S4.

the funny things is most of samsung fanboy saying that S4 didn't need waterproof.
maybe sony is not the first company to implement water proof but i never find sharp, toshiba, nec, fujitsu waterproof smartphone in my country. only sony who always release their smartphone to global market.

S4 Activ ... well the difference between sony and samsung is sony already have Xperia Active that's why there's no E letter in Activ

I think all smartphones should be water-resistant. Its the right thing to protect our expensive handsets.

Waterproofing a product is not copying someone it's not a patent

People need water proof phones and Samsung is just trying to live up to their demands like any other successful phone manufacturer would

Soon Apple will come out with a 5" iPhone and they'll say they invented 5" screens.

i think they are paying some of the rights its obvious that sony xperia z made by sony is the first to release a water resistant phone, its like the duel of different ultrabooks and laptops with backlit keyboards and touch screen monitors, anyway maybe it's totally confidential for us consumers to know if it really does for its marketing strategy. anybody here wonder why apple iphone did not even sue most phone brands with touchscreen capablities knowing they are not the first to produce touchscreen features anybody here knows palm pilot or electronic organizer with touch screen capability and pen ? well they are so many companies but they are only under one roof of unending technology for a "phone". im not in this kind of industry but when you think about it many companies do also share ideas with other companies in exchange for some stocks and sell profits of microchips for a pone camera or for the processor of the phone. simple its like you have a potato farm then mcdonalds is buying your potatoes for them to make it fries and then you as the owner also can make fries same as what mcdonalds does.
