There's a lot of comments of people hating this phone but it's not a bad phone, it's the fact that it's brand new and is going to have some problems, I have one and it's just fine, facebook, apps, quickness, definitely better than my old iPhone 4. One of the best phones on the market and considering the fact that they're using a better processor than even the Galaxy 5, it's obviously not the phone, it's just the bad ones of the bunch.

may be a dumb question but my bro just got this phone and wants to know "where is the text icon" or do you have to pay to get one?

It's slow. It takes 10 minutes to get map directions to calculate. Snapchat is a thing of my past with the active. It just doesn't work anymore.
It freezes for minutes at a time.
I had to get a replacement within a week because the phone would lock and not work for HOURS.
I hate this phone and I am a huge android fan.
32 gb memory is way too small in such phone, which supports 4K video. Even 1080 video take 1 mb/ sec so what one can do with 4K video recorder with just 32 gb memory. It's useless for the low memory. If they sell half of the price, I'll not buy it. Epic fall!
I love my Galaxy S6 Active, however after the 5.1.1 update I noticed my Usage manager Widget does not work. It's such a convenient widget to have; too bad it doesn't work anymore.
ALCORS11, 19 Nov 2015Facebook mobile app no longer compatible with Galaxy s6 active! Any ideas why?I have the s6 and had the same problem with Facebook. Went to the Amazon app store and installed from there. Works as expected, don't update from play until they fix the issue.
ALCORS11, 19 Nov 2015Facebook mobile app no longer compatible with Galaxy s6 active! Any ideas why?I noticed the same thing. Boy was I upset. Then I took the time to look through the apps and realized that there is a app called Multi Facebook and it works gr8. It's just a little more advanced than the normal one you get. Hope this helps :)

WOW really? they what me to sign another contract??? Why would I want to do that if they are not complying to the first contract of a working cell phone.
wes, 18 Nov 2015My Facebook has been locked out for days any suggestions on how to fix itI have been through over 3 Samsung cell phones got talked into a Samsung galaxy S6 active and AT&T says even though it is said to be water proof and damage proof it isn't and I lost face book on it now. You can't post pics onto facebook by going to the internet and logging onto facebook that way, I HATE THIS PHONE!!! The phone has to be charged several times a day!!! HOW in HEAVEN did it get a good rating??? WOW NO more Samsung products for me!@

It looks to me, that battery time which gives manufacturers has absolutely no relation to real life test.
I just bought this phone after having an iPhone 4s for almost 2 years. The apps that are actually available for it are usually bad, with constant ad popups and the phone hardly being able to keep up with standard apps like Snapchat. All this I could put up with... If the back facing speaker weren't already ruined! This phone is supposed to be STURDY? Honestly if you want a phone that performs well and are worried about it breaking, just get a GOOD smartphone and spend the money on a case, because this thing is not worth the money. $120 out of a young adult's pocket... I feel robbed.
