Had the LTE-A model of the S4 Active for almost a week. My previous phone was the normal S4 Active which I still have with me. There are some minor differences with the software, and I liked the normal S4 Active configurations more... the option to turn torch on when you press the volume up button when on standby is gone and the app icons on lock screen is gone too.
But in terms of hardware performance, the LTE-A is definitely a big improvement. Antutu score was a surprising 43.3k+ which according to Antutu is higher than HTC One M8, MI4, and even the S5. Phone is a bit lighter than the normal S4 Active, but not that noticeable. I also discovered that the back cover is not interchangeable as the camera on the LTE-A is bigger in physical size. The flap cover of the charging port has also improved a bit and easier to remove and put back on.
Everything else is similar. I would recommend this phone to those who are looking for a rugged and waterproof smartphone.
I don't hear any click sound when I press the back cover below the led flash. And as I observed it, the seal battery lid doesn't have a lock-in material below the led flash unlike the international version. The manual shows though, there's no need to press below the led flash to fully seal the phone,however every time I open the aqua mode, a pop-up showing that the back cover below the led flash must be pressed. Now I'm confused if it's okay to use the phone under water. Have anyone here tried to take pictures or videos using this phone (s4 active LTE-A) under water?

Very very Worst Phone, not worthy for money,my previous mobile S2 Plus,i feel it is better than S4 LTE, only thing clarity is much better, very very laggy browser,worst battery life when using network,over hear during charging and using network, 2 hours battery life if continuously using internet,Poor LTE , no performance found when comparing with my previous phone, what is the use of Quad core, 1.9 ghz and 2GB RAM, totally waste of money, why samsung are not care about performance,
hey,i ain gonna be using ma phone for about 5months,,but i disconnected the battery from the phone,,,do you think that, that's precaution enough,,or my phone could still be subjected to more harm?
