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
AnonD-338004, 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.

I guess the wait is finally over, feel sorry for the early adopters who already purchased the "normal flagship model of the Galaxy S6/Edge. In my personal opinion, the Galaxy S6 Active is a true flagship smartphone with a very nice slick design toughbook style with that IP67 protection wrapped around it. +1 for Samsung for bringing this model to life!
A rugged phone with non-removable battery and no memory card slot. I would probably get fired if I proposed this for our expeditions... Okay, let's lol now then go back to work, this is probably the "rugged" concept for Silicon Valley nerds :)

Mobilemaster, 08 Jun 2015What do you say? 3500 mAh of battery is more than enough. Samsung is not a cheap...manufacturer.What do you think will happen when the day comes that the 3500mAh battery won't hold a charge anymore,cause they don't last forever.And they say you have to take it to a Samsung service center to replace the battery,& pay an arm & a leg &one eyeball.
Time up say goodbye to samsung.. m really sad samsung thinkings about customer preferences. They removing goods from old devices and adding new god features + crap featuring things (removing sd slot, non removable battory with low Mah [on s6/s6edge]). They never ask whats really needs customer
Anonymous, 01 May 2015I agree with Zebede. They do appear to have mostly just copied the specs from the S6. All leak... morethe battery is non removable cos people like you moan of the cheap plastic design.
AnonD-195149, 05 Jun 2015After having owned the entire Galaxy line since the original until my current S5, I am definit... moredon't moan about the cheap design then if its plastic its removable if not its gonna be sealed and glass/metal
mike, 08 Jun 2015I got it wrong, Active meant for me a phone usable longer time outdoor, trading off slimness. ... moreWhat do you say? 3500 mAh of battery is more than enough. Samsung is not a cheap...manufacturer.
