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.

Bought two S6 Active devices - black for me and white for my wife. Easy to setup and handle. Look shiny and beautiful. Don't know why some consider it ugly. The phone is super fast and the battery lasts at least 3 to 5 days with average usage of calls, taking pictures and browsing (no games). The pictures are awesome even in low light conditions. Video is great too. No lag when texting, browsing or making calls. It's great! :-)
No problems whatsoever with anything. I guess most people who are happy with the phone do not comment so that's why it looks like everybody here is having problems :-)
It's a great phone - get it! :-)
I am on my 3rd S6 in as many months. They have all been warranty replacements. It runs slow when typing email and I have to stop to let it catch up often. I have to reset it 2-3 times a day to get it to work right. The blue tooth connection to my car often lets you hear the songs while talking on the phone. not happy with the product and wish I had my S4 back. I am about to request a different model device as I have had no luck with this one repeatedly.

I purchased the S6 active in June, less than 48 hrs later the phone wouldn't power on, AT&T replaced it for me at the store, less than 6 months later it has done it again. The phone just shut down and won't power back on. Samsung wants me to send it in with an approx 9 - 11 day turnaround and I do not have an extra phone for a backup. When I ask what the problem is, I get no answer. I will not purchase any Samsung product again, I had a similar experience with the Samsung "Delve" phone, I believe was the name of it several years ago.
I hate this phone, nothing "proof" about it. Water damage after the first month of use, I had to do an insurance claim, wasn't covered by the warranty. Perhaps, a class action lawsuit needs to be researched.

Sure the GS6 may come out on top in most (if not all) comparisons, but most reviews will state near the end that you can't go wrong with either phone and the GS6 is marginally better than the 6s (not "10 years ahead").
Captain T, 20 Oct 2015Screen protector protects your screen from scratch.. Not crack..Yes but they don't understand
Screen easily cracks. Mine got small crack but stopped functioning. Many issues with USB - device thinks docking station is connected etc. Look for it on Google.
