This phone has a measly 2550mAh battery yet it is the Active variant of the S6 series. Moving on...
Anemic 2550mAh battery? Add salt to injury: Probably only 32GB alternative - without card-slot AND without USB-host. My interest in this phone just went from 95+ procent likely to buy, to less then 5%.
If battery info is correct, I will be buying elsewhere for my next phone. I have been waiting on this phone, even willing to forego the missing expansion memory... but with a small battery I wont buy it. I need my phone to last all day, or at least the option of changing the battery!
I'm pretty sure that the Active is NOT the exact same size as the regular S6. It simply makes no sense.
Still no SD card and only 2550 battery??
Read my lips Samsung: N O !!!
Rumors made this phone DOA. (Dead On Arrival), so much for bigger battery.
i want to see next mobile phone with company samsung Body Dimensions 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9 mm (5.45 x 2.79 x 0.35 in)Display Size 5.2 inches similar to lg g2

And I'm not a fan of iPhone but at least with them you can just undo a few screws to get into the battery, while on the S6 you need to use a hairdryer to melt the glue then pry the phone apart with a very high chance of damaging it.
reason why people like removable batteri is becourse lets say you get your phone wet to a certen extend where you need to be able to cut the power.. or your phone freezes up like with some phones removing the battery sometimes help it so it can run again.
you wont be able to save a wet samsung phone now if you cant remove the battery.. and yes i have a friend that saved one of he's earlyer samsung galaxy phones by removing the battery after he got droped into water with the phone.. and it still worked.. not sure it would have handled that if he could not have removed the battery
but it wont be the biggest issue with this phone since it can handle water for a while

Because I can already use cloud services and power banks but with S5 I don't have to rely on them or have to worry about no signal since everything is already on my phone and have a spare battery in my car.
If Samsung can make a phone that doesn't feel like a huge downgrade like the S6 is then I'd buy it tomorrow, but if not another manufacturer can take my money.

As for the SD card, with the Cloud Service offered with the phone and many other services such as DropBox, you shouldn't make this the reason you don't get a phone you like.
There's always wild rumors about Galaxy phones but all I care is that the rumours of SD slot and removable battery are true because I've got money burning a hole in my pocket and if the S6 Active doesn't have these I have no choice but to go to another manufacturer, which is surprisingly difficult since premium phones like the S5 that have all the features just aren't made anymore.
Well they are but they're too big like with the Galaxy Note and LG G4.
samsung should not miss anything
About card slot upto 128gb
fastest class of edge and gprs like it was on the time of s3
Stereo FM radio with RDS
these are some specification which samsung is ignoring
they should remeber about s3 populirity beacuse of including these all types of specification
*battery issue is also a big issue which we users are facing
And last samsung should add also tv to all it's upcoming s series from s7
please think on my concept samsung i like your smartphones very much

yuoliuol, 28 Apr 2015no memory and battery so no use to buy this phoneI left iPhone for Samsung because of the Memory card slot and the removable battery option, if Samsung now wants to be iphonised, then I will surely say goodbye to Samsung. They have to be careful, they might lose many who moved from Apple. Some might choose Sony or Htc or even move back to Apple.
I agree with Zebede. They do appear to have mostly just copied the specs from the S6. All leaks I've read mention that the S6 active will have a memory card slot. The IP67 and 3500 mah battery are consistent with the leaks, but some of the information appears to be inaccurate. Also, no word yet whether the battery is removable or what the phone's case will be made of (poly-carbonate or aluminum. Poly-carbonate please for crystal clear reception and removable battery).
