Loss of the micro SD slot is a downgrade. One of the key reasons that got me started with Samsung Galaxy products. Disappointed in this downgrade.
How this would benefit me if I'll switch from SM-G870A or SM-G870F to this one?
No SD Card most of the guys blaming. But it is water resistant one if they provided that means surely the internal jack of sd card will affected. If u need such one go for S6 Edge
Perfect,great standard one of the best phones in town but no sd slot is really bad.......
No memory extension for a 4K video recorder?
No OIS on an "active" camera?
It cannot be explained.
Samsung is done.
I just hate non removable bettery phones, not matter how powerful they are functionally...........!
Worth buying? I think Galaxy Xcover 3 is much better. Even the design is similar. I need sd slot and removable battery. Being active means you keep taking picture till the sd card is full and replace it immediately with an empty one. Being active also mean that you have no time to charge yiur ohone outdoor so swaping battery is the better choice. Super Amoled and 576 ppi? Active people barely use their phone and spend more time having fun with the activity they are engaging with.
if samsung to have Display Type LED-backlit IPS LCD, capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors was best phone.
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2015Yep, another huge dissapointment. I guess Samsung has finished with the decent phonesSay the back cover comes off underwater. U are toast at that point. It all depends on how you look at it, it could be good or bad. That is why the back is not removable. As for expandable storage, a lot of customer service employees have clients coming in crying because their micro ad card failed and they lost all of their data, but the option of expanding storage in itself is very good. There's a controversy to everything.
farbror Frej, 09 Jun 2015If the 3500mah battery is true then my interest in this phone is rekindled. Now I just have on... morejust get a good rugged phone case will turn ANY phone into an active one lol..
and if you need more battery , look for zerolemon they offer battery cases with upto 10000 mah capacity. and in a rugged phone case.
I am pretty sure now, that Samsung engineers have no idea what kind of smartphone outdoor people need. One can make an "active" model without FM radio, card slot, removable battery and waterproof connectors, even two or three (help!), but when one makes the fourth model for kids in sandbox and again calls it "active", then definitely should see a doctor, possibly the best outdoor one.
Honestly the s6 active is a flop,Sammy wat we're u thinking because that phone on features is ok except the ugly appearance and I think you should stick to the main phone and no variants because they are tanishing the reputation u have made so far
starbuck, 09 Jun 2015A rugged phone with non-removable battery and no memory card slot. I would probably get fired ... moreYep, another huge dissapointment. I guess Samsung has finished with the decent phones
This phone indeed suitable for various military purposes, anti against shock, dust, and water, but there is news only sold limited in certain countries also, although there in my country, I can't buy because the price is certainly expensive.
If the 3500mah battery is true then my interest in this phone is rekindled. Now I just have one more hurdle to overcome. IF theres no 64GB version, an no SD-card,then I MUST at least have USB-host for external memory. 32GB is simply not enough on lengthy vacations away from home.
