> In reply to S4 Active User @ 2014-05-16 09:20 from IVLg - click to readI agree with this. Be responsible, check every port if its properly sealed before you dip it in water or soak it or what so ever. For those people who always winning because they want the phone to be more effective underwater well.. please be informed, SAMSUNG company built this phone just for only in an accident situation. for example, you accidentally drop it on a water, so you will not gonna buy new phone because your S4 active is still working fine. If you really want an underwater device, go buy for really underwater camera that can sink to 20 meters. SIMPLE! haaayzz...

I have had this phone for about 6 months now and personally, I hate it. I had been an iPhone user for many years but decided to switch because my batteries kept dying. BIGGEST REGRET EVER. This phone has caused more headaches than my iPhone ever did! Half of the time the camera decides not to work, the apps often freeze or shutdown and the phone damages extremely easily. None of my iPhones had ever cracked ,this phones screen has already completely shattered!! If anyone knows anyway I could get any sort of refund (not likely) I would love to know!

the phone battery life will drop to around 25 to 30% before 12am. Now, it can remain around 40 to 45%.

Not some big improvement anyway.

Gsmarena please edit S4 Active's OS specification.

Android OS, v4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) upgradeable to v4.4.2 (Kitkat). This phone is already upgradeable to latest Kitkat OS.

Speaking of cons of Android Kitkat 4.4.2, my phone will auto restart in some occasion heavy usage, it happen when i ran thru Antutu benchmark.

Well, the white color notification actually is not my taste of liking, I like the previous color notification icon.

The web browser is improved, with new 3D look on multi web tab, and much faster.
The IR blaster Watch On apps is upgraded, with more brand support, even supporting air conditioner control.

Group play feature also is improved with now support video file group play.
Camera now with a new continous burst snap for 20 image, something that is available on original S4, but not on S4 active, still don't have dual shot feature though.

Battery life is improved.

The bad thing about unique phone is that accessories r nt available, nt even simple things like screen protector. Yet its cool
