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.

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
Spotimafia , 30 Jan 2016should I buy this phone tomorrow or is there any other phone better then this one if someone c... moreno, the phone is garbage, u can't even hear it ring unless you leave it with the glass side down. If you have a case that covers the speaker you will miss every message and call. it also has a p.o.s. camera lens that cracked in my pocket.
Spotimafia , 30 Jan 2016should I buy this phone tomorrow or is there any other phone better then this one if someone c... moreRight now this is considered the best phone on the line for most things. The other is a IPhone 6s, but personal opinion coming from a hard working person who also is in the military, this phone holds its ground. It is tough has semi good protection from outside elements, but like any personal electronic devise I would by protection for it. Most stores have yet to put s6 active cases on their walls, but you can buy them online or from the guy in the mall (we all know the one). Positive to buying online you can get a custom one made for as low as about $20. I just had a more expensive one made for $35 to my spec. So its not that hard to find one. so as far as programming goes it is as of right now number one rated also for ease of use. Design is a little more bulky though, but I don't mind means more to it. To sum it up I do think it is worth the money.
I am very disappointed with this phone. It fell 2 feet from car to grass and screen cracked in corner. I went to best buy to get case to prevent further damage and was told there are not any cases for this phone other than through 3rd vendor. After looking at phone they stated this phone is advertised as rugged and should not have cracked. This is why I chose it as I had had just regular s3 with sprint. They told me to take to samsung repair of which i did. They said would have to send off and if find my fault would bill $199.00 to me. I would not have access to a loaner phone. Seriously? I just got the phone 121515 so called att to see if they can assist by giving new and differ7phone........nope, was told would have to pay $200 deductible to get new one. I'm so rattled that I am going to just go back to sprint and see if they will pay me out of contract to get me back so I can get a new and diff7phone. S6 active is very false advertising. No service Samsung store a serious joke!! Who can be without phone for who knows how long. Being new customer and barely in 2 months seem att would just replace no charge........just bad experience period. Don't get this phone thinking it is rugged because of self contain case and what they falsely advertise it as!!!!!!!
