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.
Anyone had problems with the s6 active charger and charging port starting on fire while charging?
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

Samsung Galaxy 6 Active had difficulty connecting to the network just prior to the warranty ending. 10 weeks later difficulty accelerated to warming up and not connecting to cellular.
$700 phone is now a paperweight after 13 months of scant to moderate use.
Your options are to purchase the insurance with Samsung. Device will cost the purchase price, plus the monthly insurance and a couple of deductibles, AKA $1100-$1250 over 30 months or $42 per month. Risk it and spend $54 per month like me.
Samsung rushed their "olympic ad buy" Note device, placed customer safety second to profit and the galaxy they sold me was not a good value. I will pause before becoming their customer again.
Bahama Papa, 19 Sep 2016I switched from the I phone to Samsung after seeing such good picture quality in a friends Sam... moreEXACTLY the same thing that happened to me, this phone sucks. Except mine also is draining battery like crazy now even when I am doing nothing. I have had it for not even two months and it is wifi only, overeahting like hell, and is just a bad overall phone. I had WAY higher expectations, never buying a Samsung phone again.
Jules, 30 Aug 2016It is truly an amazing phone. With my previous devices, I always had problems with the durabil... moreYou retrieved your sinking phone within two of the three minutes in the pacific ocean? You heard your phone fall from the side of a moving automobile? You saw your phone lying in the middle of the street from your rear view mirror? yeah. ok.
This phone is absolutely horrible. I switched to a Samsung after many friends told me how great it is. It was a fantastic phone until it stopped working. I had to reset it everyday... Now I'm certain I will not get another phone from Samsung. With an Apple phone, I never had a ridiculous problem like this.
I switched from the I phone to Samsung after seeing such good picture quality in a friends Samsung. I am frequently on the seas fishing or diving and thought the Samsung s6 active would be a good choice.......What a piece of shit it really is. From overheating to short battery lifespan to by no means water proof or water resistant for that matter. I just recently returned from a trip to Exuma Bahamas, on the very second day of this trip my Samsung s6 was shot all because of a small bit of water dropping on the gad damn phone as I exited the water and stood over my phone while drying off. No phone, no pics, no contact for the remainder of the trip. A total piece of shit. Stick to cameras and forget phones.
Bald Chewbacca, 03 Aug 2016so the s6 active has had a major issue since the update. july 2016 my phone won't get recepti... moreMine is doing the exact same thing. I loved this phone up until this point. AT&T told me the same thing so I contacted Samsung who basically said oh well you are out of warranty. This was my first Samsung phone but the way they treat their customers is why I'm going back to Apple now. It's pretty bad when you buy a $600+ phone and it basically turns into WiFi only just after a year of use. It's also crazy that with all of the Note 7 battery overheating issues Samsung is having, they aren't jumping at fixing or replacing our S6 Actives that are having the same overheating issues.
