I used mine in a sauna and noticed that when the water dries rust form on the speaker grill. Maybe I don't understand chemistry and the rust only comes from hotter temperatures?

I've have this phone a little over a year now. And despite a few issues I still love it. However, about a month or so after getting this phone I started noticing the charger was overheating a ton, not to mention the phone also. Shortly thereafter after one day the phone had over 40 percent charge and as I was on Facebook the phone completely shut off. I tried charging it and nothing. In a panic I dug out an old phone and started using that(still not able to power back on my s6active even after several attempts to charge it). It remained in my glove box for 2 months. Found it one day and decided to try to power it on and like magic the stupid thing powers on but completely dead. My question is... has anyone else had this issue? I am still using this device as of today without further problems but I cannot use the original charger because of the overheating issue and it makes me wonder if that is linked to the phone shutting off suddenly. Note: At&t basically told me I was out of luck since it was out of warranty and I didn't wanna pay my expensive insurance deductible.
I have just acquired this phone and hope what you folks posted on this comments/opinion section is true! Just wondering how the water proofing works since the sim slot seems to come off so easily! how does that make it waterproof?
iám happy owner of the S6 Active for 8 month now. The phone is outstanding! Best phone i ever had! Switched from a S5 to it. Samsung typical great manufacturing. Technicaly state of the Art 2nd Q 2015 with a fantastic Samsung manufactured rearcamera (. The Phones package is really tough. Survices a few 1m drops to the floor without any visual scratches or dents. I regulary put it into my trunks when i go swimming. No issues there either. For me the perfect phone!
Tjohnson801, 10 Nov 2016Anyone had problems with the s6 active charger and charging port starting on fire while charging?Um no, Samsung had problems, becuase they released the battery before it was ready. They tried to cut corners. Even so they should have given the ip68 rating to the samsung galaxy s7/note 7 to the s8/note 8.
I've owned this phone since it's release a new it's a great durable phone hands down. I was extremely looking forward to purchasing a GEAR VR but finding out my gs6 active isn't compatible really sucks. I'm most definitely switching to apple because I'm not gonna buy a new phone just to use gear vr. It's been real, it's been fun.

I've had my S6 active for two months, great phone until it fell from three feet and the rest is history. FYI in was in a case with tempered glass screen protector. The screen never cracked but the screen is permanently blank.

I got this phone. Thank God! it awesome. Try to dip into fresh water n take video - still functioning. Keep charging port and headphone jack dry after put into water. Camera very clear. Don't drop it with intention. Just care for it like ordinary phone, and hope it extraordinary features stand to minor accident.
If you got the one with removable battery cover, sure you got the counterfeit one. Try to dip into water then bye bye
