S6 Active still has better battery life, almost half the price, and is almost as tough. S6 Active for the win.
I'm somehow shocked by the battery life. I expected so much better since the S6 active went above 105h with a 3600mah battery.
This shows how efficient exynos chipsets are. Just compare both the S7 edge varients and you will see.
JonHolstein, 30 Jun 2016It's not a easy fix. Applying screen protectors and getting a good result is really hard. Ev... morelol for some, screen protectors are a must on every device, i know mine can survive a few scratches and so, but every little scartch adds up so i put the screen protector and even when it has a few scracthes (just a couple visible) there's no need to be replacing them as much as u claim, other thing, air bubbles?? either ur doing it wrong or need some help doing it, stores where u can buy screen protectors put them right infront of u so ur ok with the set up...either way the active is meant to be used outdoors and so, it's more exposed to scratches than normal phones, i really recommend the screen protector for that
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2016Very easy fix. Screen protectorIt's not a easy fix.
Applying screen protectors and getting a good result is really hard.
Even with glass screen protectors you have the issue of dust getting caught.
The glass ones also tends to break easily, even the most expensive versions.
And it adds thickness if the screen is not recessed. And it does not perfectly match the front. And the cutouts also effects the look.
The plastic ones look better when applied in theory, as they dont add as much thickness.
They scratch more easily, however, so to keep the look clean you would probably have to replace it more often than a glass one.
And they effect the feel of the screen. The glass ones feel much better.
And it's near impossible to apply one without getting air bubbles. I've tried myself, but even had products with protectors already applied in the factory and I've never had a device with plastic screen protector without airbubbles. And dirt can still be caught.
It also adds extra cost. Especially if you are going for the better ones. And keep replacing them to keep the looks up. And you might have to discard some, if you fail when you are trying to apply them.
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2016I like to see sony achieve that while using more than 720p.I think that was a fluke.
They never achieve that score again in any of their handset, (with a small battery).
Well, Samasung fails to provide a battery battery life/battery optimization.
Since S3 and so on... They fail.
Either they don't know how to optimize or they are just using the third class batteries.
S7 active really best galaxy there, coz this phone really not mainstream not like other galaxy series, anyway the one things i really like in s7 active is design
Samsung , success , success , success !!!
finally i saw the 4000mah battery in Samsung model , & the video playback is so impressive result upto 20 hours , 12 hours wifi is not bad result , i expect more on 4000mah by Samsung processor.
hope the Samsung coming up model will fit in 5000mah , for us really peace of mind from 8am until 11pm.
I dont understand why this is still an AT&T exclusive. These days almost everyone have stopped doing it. It definitely can do great if they launch it across all carriers.
Unbelievable, is it possible that Samsung had built another rugged phone without a lanyard outlet?
So we are supposed to put it in another case in order to have it tied to ourselves when on water?
Anonymous, 30 Jun 201696hr will still be great for sure....but was really hoping to see atleast 5hr improvement from... moreLikely because a SnapDragon processor was used rather than the more efficient Exynos like in the internation S7 variants.
jrharbort, 30 Jun 2016... Sony was the one hitting 100+ hours with batteries as small as 2600mAh.I like to see sony achieve that while using more than 720p.
jrharbort, 30 Jun 2016... Sony was the one hitting 100+ hours with batteries as small as 2600mAh.Not anymore.......
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2016Sony, Take note. This is what you call battery life. (90+hours) Not that 40 hour crap.... Sony was the one hitting 100+ hours with batteries as small as 2600mAh.
Try selfie camera taking a picture using edge of the sensor. As in, position the camera so that your face is on the bottom or top of the image while holding the device vertically. On every S7 I've checked so far each time the face is on top or bottom, face gets distorted. My face looked longer than it is (significantly longer than in the middle), my wife's face became a round ball, which is, funnily, the opposite of our actual faces (my face was made thinner, her face was made wider).
Beauty settings that are supposed to "fix" the face don't really help in either "max" or "off" position (in fact, I couldn't tell the difference). I tried a number of parameters but differences were minor at best.
