Hope they don't lock this on AT&T again.
On a related note... Samsung should have a plastic back phone option for all their glass models. Why do I want a glass back if I'll always need a case to protect it from shattering?
Zenodroid, 08 May 2017The front will be labeled "don't drop" :-PLOL yeah

But I have read the 810-G document and when I see "MIL-STD-810G" on a phone or phone case I know that it doesnt mean anything.
Anonymous, 06 May 2017it means this phone passed the test dummythere is no "test" that simply saying "MIL-STD-810G" relates to. It is a vague meaningless marketing statement.
AnBruh, 08 May 2017Were you not expecting Samsung to make an Active version of their flagship like they have in t... moreWell yeah knowing Samsung they produce "active" versions, but I just find it difficult with S8 being so fragile. I wonder how the front would look like.
Botagz, 07 May 2017It's funny how there's a recent article here saying how fragile S8 is. And now this. Makes me ... moreWere you not expecting Samsung to make an Active version of their flagship like they have in the past?
Zenodroid, 07 May 2017Reality is that phones aren't build for vr, with those tiny batteries. So yeah, back to reality. Yet have been working just fine. And steadily getting better. Go figure
It's funny how there's a recent article here saying how fragile S8 is. And now this. Makes me cringe.
Anonymous, 07 May 2017Wow.......anyway back to realityReality is that phones aren't build for vr, with those tiny batteries. So yeah, back to reality.
Instead of buying this. why not buy a regular S8 or S8+ with a rugged phone cover with built-in extra battery.
Can't wait to see the battery size of this phone, must be more than 4000 mAh.

Anonymous, 06 May 2017The power american carriers exhibit over phone makers never ceases to amaze me.
AT&T li... moreSeriously! Amen.
The active being an att exclusive is madenning. And they don't support the vr either.
And the bloatware. Or like the t-mobile note 2. It's upsetting enough that samsung left that beast on kit Kat
..but t-mobile decided to leave it on jelly bean.
And they had to have a power connector turned a different direction with a long flex for no other reason then you couldn't swap out the board and display like you so easily could with the other models.
And tethering!!! Before everyone started offering decent data prices and amounts again when it was like $50 for 2gb you had to pay a tethering fee.???????
It was so bad that even now phone that had these restrictions built it you can't even turn on the phones Hotspot for transferring purposes and other non data related uses.
It's like not being able to use Bluetooth.
Even now they are still like you can only do this with your tether and it's limited to certain speeds and amounts...
The s7 active also finally offered a more shatter resistant display too.
Let's hope that improves and continues.
I wish they had a note active
