Ulysses31, 17 Jun 2015You never been to the beach?I live in an island. Am surrounded by sea. Never had any issue with my cell phones though. Anyhow.
I have the Galaxy S6 Active. I do like the phone but I have a few issues. One concern I have is the audio quality of the rear speaker. Everything is clipped in some fashion. It sounds like the old speak and spell voice. It is very noticeable with a deep male voice. I wonder what they did? My old galaxy S4 was fine. Fortunately the audio issue is limited to the rear speaker. Direct connect headphones and Bluetooth do not suffer from any lack of audio quality. Maybe there is a fix to this rear speaker speak and spell voice audio issue?
My second issue is there is only 32Gb of storage space. Need I say more on this one? Give us the option of at least 64Gb.
Battery life is absolutely amazing! I live in poor cell reception area and my phones usually die around noon. I get a full 14 hrs of battery with this phone. This is the biggest reason I will keep this phone. My wife's iPhone 6 is dead by 2PM.
Absolutely everything else about the phone is great. I know people think its ugly, but its the rugged active version and its what I expect form a real phone that can actually take a real life beating and keep working reliably. Overall its a great phone but the rear speaker audio quality is an epic fail. The limitation of only 32GB is almost a major fail. It has close to 24Gb free. I just transferred my basic needs over to the phone and I only have 5GB free... Not super impressed. This is frustrating as my old S4 had 80GB of storage. I had to really downsize to fit on the Galaxy S6 Active with only 32Gb of storage.
i do have a question: is samsung considering making a 64 gigabyte version or what? cause everything about this phone is really great but the storage i would really like to have an answer for my question if anyone who reads this does not mind ofcourse
u guys should please update the specs sheet... Dimensions, weight & stuff... What u waiting for..??? The phone is already out !

I've got a LG G2 i'm happy with but can't say i've been imprerssed with the G4. The Galaxy S6 active if anywehere as good as what they say about the "normal" S6, is made for me!
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.

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.

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?
