If it comes with waterproof usb connector, it could be best navigation for motorbike.

Anonymous, 02 Mar 2017Are you living in Bargain Land? This is a rugged phone, not your ordinary plastic smartphone. ... moreStill, cat is cheaper and better build. Even more powerful. The active is rugged too, but locked to the US.
lol, 02 Mar 2017You know your cousin, brother, mother, sister, aunt and uncle in law's dog's phones can all be... moreEveryone tried everything, including soft reset, firmware updates and cache cleaning and the result is the same - bothched software, awful battery life, burned-in AMOLEDs and horrible day-to-day use. And I am not talking about ancient and cheap devices - two of them were Galaxy S3s, bought in early 2013 and started malfunctioning in early 2014, one was Galaxy S2 Plus bought in late 2013 and becoming practically unusable half an year later, one S3 Mini which became horrible after less than a year and so on. All of them will never buy crappy Samsung ever again, that's for sure. And in the meantime my ancient SE Live with Walkman from 2012 is still going strong after 5 years and my 2 Allview phones are running just fine also. So yeah, good luck with your Crapsungs...

And at the extreme end, a factory reset will do whatever clearing the cache doesn't.
Phones become slow over time due to the actions of the user, not those of the manufacturer.
Literally the only other reason is if the flash memory chips begin to perish, and that only happens if the phone is REALLY old or the user is thrashing the life out of it with constant file writes, like, moving your entire music collection in and out a couple of times a month.
Obi Wan Kenobi, 01 Mar 2017Oh, the S7 active is lovely, if only it was widely available and not just an AT&T exclusive.There are lots of S7 active sold in internet, even here in indonesia also lots of online e-commerce have it, you can see it on tokopedia.com for example
Actually it's quite nice device on paper - 14nm power-efficient SoC paired with not-so-demanding HD display and sufficient battery makes this a great workhorse for all the folks in the mud. The only problems I see is that
a) it is Samsung after all and this automatically means it will become laggy as hell and practically unusable after 1 year and 2-3 software updates. Trust me, mu cousin, my girlfriend, 2 of her best friends, my brother, his wife - all of them had different Samsungs and they became practically unusable after about a year because of their awful software while my 2 Allview phones (rebranded Gionee models) for the past 3 years are still working just fine. Aaaaaand also:
b) the asking price will be ridiculously high just like the Xcover 3.
So for now I will pass and will probably buy again a Chinese phone...

Do u like ur comments urself by 4-5 ids every time.. :D
HPe, 01 Mar 2017I think the model you're thinking of is called Galaxy S7 Active. :DIt could be but: 1. its too big, 2. its not sold internationally, unlike Xcover series.

Zenodroid, 01 Mar 2017Max 100$ for that piece of crap. Are you living in Bargain Land? This is a rugged phone, not your ordinary plastic smartphone. Get real.
