Billydf, 19 May 2013you never used xperia z then. you can take picture, recording video using xperia z while gone ... moreI know what you mean, but what I mean is that Xperia ZR is FULLY FUNCTION-ABLE UNDERWATER, unlike Xperia Z, you will need some "trick" to taking photo/video underwater.
And that is the difference between water--resistance and waterproof. And I believe this S4 Active may end up only a water-resistance phone like XZ.
But anyway, all of them are nice phone, tot I hate Samsung "forever-repeated-soap-bar" design. :D
ISJ5, 19 May 2013wow at S4 http://www.gsmarena.com/stats.php3Most of the real buyers don't have to visit this site and write crappy statements and rate the phones. Only fans like you and me come to this site and post comments and rate the phones. Do you believe rating given in gsmarena site is the scale for sales and satisfaction? I'm believe it is not. Poor iPhone fan!!!
i already compare xperia z and samsung S4 indonesia spec, in terms of feature S4 win, but in terms of speed, no lag, both device result are equal.
so i believe benchmark result is nothing.

can't be used means you cannot touch everything until your phone off the water.
so i believe S4 can be used in the pool to capture and recording but you must set before go swiming
[deleted post]Not sure about this S4 Active, but the newly announced Xperia ZR is a waterproof smartphone and with a removeable 2300mAh battery + SDcard slot + same spec with Xperia Z.
Do take note that Xperia Z is a "water-resistance" smartphone but not "waterproof". Which means the Xperia Z CAN'T BE USED UNDERWATER (but it won't die underwater) while Xperia ZR can like taking shot/video underwater.
Anyway, it is nice to see Samsung announced a water-resistance/waterproof flagship. But personally, I rather to have a cooler phone than a waterproof phone, like the NEC smartphone with a water-cooler inside

On paper s4 says it's thin and smaller, but in actual s4 seems to be bulkier. Maybe the measurements of the advertised thickness of s4 was measured from the thinner section.
Samsung at it again. Making permutation and combination and selling pieces with name of curent flag with last year specs making fool of customers. People see the name S4 and they will buy it with their eyes closed and Samsung is captilizing on it.
