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 :)
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2015Why no microSD card???

Looks like I'm going for Sony.. again!
Sorry Sammy, maybe next year..
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.
Marsreis, 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

I got it wrong, Active meant for me a phone usable longer time outdoor, trading off slimness. But with such a small battery where is the point?
Active should have a huge (really huge, replaceable) battery, robust casing even if it gets heavier.
Where is a 2 days always on, heavy like a brick, phone?
I was hoping, it would have dual sim, And maybe to differentiate with S6, is to have 5.3-5.5 inch screen.
I'll stick to my s5 active, for one its stock battery is bigger..but I added an extended which made a huge difference. But Sammy trying to cash in on making you buy memory each phone is just bs. Note 4 would be OK but I think its time I look at other android brands
THUG-LIFE, 05 Jun 2015no worth to buy,no 3500 mah this is old, now phones come with 5000-6000 mah battery and are tw... moreWhy does Samsung think I want to shave a few grams and mm off my phone for a much smaller battery that leaves me without a phone when I need it? Why do I want a metal frame that interferes with the reception of the phone?
no worth to buy,no 3500 mah this is old, now phones come with 5000-6000 mah battery and are twice cheaper

I hear S6 sales are much worse than they predicted and barely even equal to S5 sales which was seen as a massive commercial failure, so that's good news anyway.
TeD, 04 Jun 2015S6 is a HUGE improvement over S5 in so many aspects: looks, speed, screen, memory technology, ... moreI do agree there were some improvements, but other then the looks,that are indeed fantastic on the edge, most are BS. Qi charging, I already have on my S5. QHD display does that not look substantially different from 1080p is a battery and cpu killer. CPU and memory speeds are a natural evolution, but from what I hear, the S6 lags like my S5,thanks to TW. As for amount of memory,well, I have infinite via SD cards...
