The hard buttons for home/tabs/back are awful. I'm having a tough time readjusting to 2008-era concepts. Might have to return the active for the soft buttons of the s6. Great phone otherwise.

I am really looking forward to put my hands on this beast! Even if my trustworthy LG G2 still serves me well, with time it has lost some brilliance. Plus, I want the freedom of not worrying whether my phone falls or if I go hiking and it gets wet.
But I live in Switzerland and I would like to know if I'll ever have a chance to buy (and enjoy) the S6 Active here. Does anyone knows? Or do you know where may I check for the selected selling countries?
Does Anyone have info if it will be released in UK? If so what is the price of this handset. Love the specs wanna buy it.
Styvori, 16 Jun 2015I dont really get it. I understand its waterproof. Why is it salt proof if it cant get in the ... moreSimple its designed for Navy Guys, as when they are in the sea for months, the air contains salt itself which can cause damage to phone.

Why would they make it so ugly?
Why limit it to 32GB?
To me these are total show stoppers.
Samsung would have just been smart to put this battery in the S6/Edge even if it meant "sacrificing" .5 millimeters.

Personally I think the thing... moreWell when it takes 10 hours to upload my pictures and my videos or any other files due to bandwidth PLUS ill probably need more storage thus ill have to pay money on top for cloud service it makes SENSE to the rest of us why SD is pretty much an essential part of the cell phone.
I dont really get it. I understand its waterproof. Why is it salt proof if it cant get in the sea ? What sort of contact do humans have with salt besides entering the sea , so that they made it salt proof? Please can someone elaborate why is this cell phone salt proof?

At least for browsing pictures and storing files. I do keep some music on my device, but I primarily stream. I guess in your case, my solution won't work.

It's nothing but unnecessary compromise when with enough memory on the phone you could have everything always at hand and on the cloud for backup, because those times you have no or very slow Internet connection you're completely screwed.
Hello, Gsmarena. I just wanted to tell you some of the specs of this phone, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active, that are either missing or incorrect, so here you go:
-This phone has 3GB of ram.
-The weight of this phone is 5.291 oz (150 grams).
-The dimensions of this phone are 146.81 x 73.41 x 8.64 mm / 5.78 x 2.89 x 0.34 in.
-One of the sensors of this phone is SpO2.
-This phone has 3 colors: Gray, Camo White, and Camo Blue.
-The display of this phone actually has a 577 ppi pixel density.
So, these are all the specs of this phone, the Galaxy S6 Active, that are missing. All of these are completely accurate and true, so don't worry! Once you add all these to the spec chart, the chart should be complete! So yeah, you're welcome, Gsmarena!
This phone are beast but unfortunately this phone not have a SD card slot and non-removable battery.Anyway i will buy this phone :)

Johny Amadeus, 14 Jun 2015Only thing how need this super hard smartphone is converting Super AMOLED to "IPS Quantum... moreWhat? Super Amoled is way better than IPS quantum LCD display. Infinite contrast and near zero black level make super amoled display sharp and colour vivid more than any LCD display.
Just got this yesterday and loving it. Got the blue camo version. Personally I think the thing is beautiful. I don't get this obsession with going ever thinner and sacrificing battery size. These phones, are thin enough. Nothing even remotely bulky about this phone. Plus I hate cases and this phone is durable enough to go naked.
So far battery life is stellar. I'm not a heavy user but I have been installing apps, customizing, streaming music, tinkering etc since yesterday. 22 hours now since charging and it has 40% left. SD cards and lots of storage is overrated. I keep all my photos and videos on Picasa/Google photos. Why anyone insists on keeping everything local is beyond me. Other random files I keep on Google Drive. Everything launches just as fast as launching them from phone storage thru those services. 32gb is more than enough. Imo this is the best phone out there today.
