I have had my phone for only a year and I have so much trouble out of it. First the speakers go out all the time, or sound scratchy. Second, the screen goes black (the phone is still on.) I can still hear things, but the screen back light goes out. Third it shuts down all the time. I love Samsung, but this model has not been my favorite.
Last year I put a load of laundry in the washing machine and my phone was in the laundry.I wash it pulled it out and it works great. I don't any other phone out there would still work after that
the only problem with th samsung galaxy s6 active is the battery will drain quickly after charging the phone for 8 hours at times and other times it is ok. Is there a possibility of overcharging.
I really like the Samsung products especially the actives that they've have made recently having had a 4s active and had no problems with it I decided to try the new 6 active only to have multiple problems within the last 3 months of owning it within the first month the charging port failed, and now after receiving the replacement problem with the Google software, is there anyone else out there having the same time problems
ButtonBoy, 15 Sep 2015Worst of all, it has an encrypted bootloader, making it impossible to install a better kernel.Does it any any root method available?
Major miss: the review doesn't mention anything about being able to operate it under water. Yes, submersible at 1.5 m for 30 minute, but can you press the buttons without flooding the unit?

One day some bright spark will decide to use a transparent unbreakable material instead of a transparent breakable material. This phone has easily the best image quality of any cellphone camera I have seen. Easily> Look at the samples and imagine a future in which these machines are used commercially all the time, because judging by the results here- and if the S6 etc is tough enough, I would expect to be able to illustrate books and magazines using just this phone.
At base ISO they are gallery quality, amazing!!
Of course, IF the screen cracks all the time, no use at all...... use perspex instead?
MakkaCha, 23 Jul 2015Instead of getting the Active, you can get a galaxy s6 and buy the x-case for it. The x-case u... moreThats true but that case is quite clunky and still leaves you with the 1000mah smaller battery
Instead of getting the Active, you can get a galaxy s6 and buy the x-case for it. The x-case uses gorilla glass for front panel and is dust, water and shock resistant. With the case you won't lose the fingerprint sensor and you get what ever memory model you want.

TheNeighbor, 29 Jun 2015How many apps do you install? 32GB is way big enough not to need to transfer their data to the... more5gb of music , 8gb of movies and 10 gb for games .
Left with afew gb for apps and 4k videos =/
As a kayaker and photographer, I need a waterproof phone, with as good camera as possible. So far my Z1 was doing the job very well, but I am looking for a next year replacement.
I would like a similar phone, that is beautiful to look at, hold in hand, and most of all have a great camera.
S6 Active is a possible buy, but it looks like a hiking boot, not a phone. Another really important disadvantage is it not having a lanyard inlet.
Taking a photo in slippery conditions, above water, and risking loosing the phone, or having to put it in another, even more disgusting case that has a lanyard?
Unfortunately, I think I will have to pass on this one :/
