I am very disappointed in the Galaxy S6 Active. They have " over engineered " it and insulated it so much so that the internal antenna is poorly functioning and reception for calls and wifi is greatly diminished.The Galaxy S6 Active is terrible for call and wifi quality. I had no problems with the Galaxy5 but it was too sensitive to water and stopped working. I tried 2 separate devices and the problems were exactly the same. . Samsung and AT&T cannot agree on anything except to point fingers at each other. I've gone reverse in service,, very poor reception, etc. Too bad the Galaxy S6 Active a decent camera trying to pose as a mobile phone.
ive had the s6 active for maybe two months and the screen cracked after i gently set it on a rock while hiking. now my phone looks like there's a spider web across it. the galaxy s5 active was so much better, i dropped it countless times and there wasnt so much as a scratch on it. so much for "indestructible"
I have had mine only 4 months.I have had nothing but issues.freezing up,wifi not working,network issues,apps not working,slow Internet the list goes on.
I was really disappointed. I had this phone 1 week, I dropped it looking at it on my table, just inches from my hand to the table, and the screen broke. Inches!! How is this sturdy??? Actve?? Never had a chance to be active w it! And now, it will be 350-400 to repair. Very disappointed. I would think twice b4 buying this phone.
terrible. I had the s6 active for less than 3 months and from no fault of my own the screen ble. I even went to at&t before it happened because my touch screen wasnt working. They inspected it and determined there was NO damage done on my part and put me on the phone with warranty. As I was on the phone my screen started to bleed AFTER the inspection. The at&t rep confirmed to Samsung warranty that it was not my fault, and I was told it wasnt covered by warranty if there is a bleed. I was furious. I had to get a new one from asurion and pay 200$. So much for a durable phone. It broke without me even dropping it. Now my new replacement routinely freezes, really really often. I will never buy another samsung product. They are junk.
just concern on the how sensitive is this phone ...with ATT I get only two bars even in their store...the rep. told me not to worry...
if you are having slowdown/freezing issues after a firmware update, you may need a factory reset.
unfortunately, the transition to new versions of android isn't as smooth as it should be so your apps can get really buggy due to the firmware. i do a factory reset after every major update (like going from android 5.0 to 5.01) and my phone operation is still smooth as silk.
ru t, 03 Feb 2016I am very disappointed with this phone. It fell 2 feet from car to grass and screen cracked in... morewe had same issue my grandaughters phone fell out of her pocket when she went to get her coat off of the sofa screen cracked and jarred components on inside .samsung stated same thing,att put it on your insurence you have with a 200 deductable ,so at this point my grandaughter has no phone and i am paying for something can use
Yes I have that same issue and I am on phone # 2 and still have this same issue. I was able to send mine in under warranty. I cam on here to see if others were also having this problem!
HATE IT! Click on something and it can take over 10 seconds to respond! Tired of rebooting all the time to try and fix. Have cleared cache many times. Just a piece of junk. Can't wait to get rid of it.
Great performance BUT>>>>>>> few pictures underwater (no more than 1 mt) and some pictures at the beach (just waves splashing) and water get inside the phone. IP68 not true on this case.

s6 active sucks, 05 Feb 2016no, the phone is garbage, u can't even hear it ring unless you leave it with the glass side do... morei don't like Samsung but i am sure they are not made for your own wants and demands, if the glass cracked in your pocket it's your fault, if you can't hear calls or texts tones, it's still your fault, you're deaf AF, the case was not made to be drawback for the features, it compliments the upgraded features from the normal ones
