Consumer Reports say Samsung Galaxy S7 Active test devices failed water resistance!!. =(
Wake up and do it something!!!,Samsung!.
Yes I read the newspaper but it say only in the us not in the uk.. I though all countries would do the same model with water proof???? Strange?
What? This one has Fm radio, and the regular S7 does not? Well this is interesting.
Consumer Reports say both their test devices failed water resistance testing. Be interesting to see who's right - them or Samsung
The S7 Active have a powerful Snapdragon 820 CPU, that's the reason of its lower endurance rating.
Hope that maybe Samsung will release this phone in Europe, cause it's a really good stuff!
With the power saving Exynos CPU it could beat the S6 Active's Battery time!
How does the GSMArena tests the battery? How explain the Endurance rating ??
1) 109h - S6 Active = 3500 mAh, Exynos 7420 Octa, 3GB
2) 98h - S7 Edge = 3600 mAh (Kryo or Exynos Mongoose CPU ?) 4GB
3) 96h - S7 Active = 4000 mAh (Kryo) same as S7 Edge but extra battery... funs
Yes, all are the same bloatware... but why the S7 Active are the last of Edge ?! It's only quad-core and all same QHD screen!!!
It will be good to have it with FLIR thermal camera (Lepton module) and Water Resustant and military speck like in Cat S60 (http://www.gsmarena.com/cat_s60-7928.php)
Josea, 04 Jul 201696 endurance rating ... And s6 active hace 106 why??It seems that this endurance rating is incorrect, since S7 Edge has
Talk time Up to 27 h (3G)
Music play Up to 74 h
98h endurance rating
And this S7 Active has greater times but lower rating...
Had mine for a week. Not waterproof. Wanted to test out the aqua camera mode 5 minutes later the screen goes black been broke since. Very unhappy might end up going back to apple.
Does anyone know if the streaming function has been restored. I have the S6 active and I can't steam it to my TV. I'm really mad that Samsung removed this ability and I'm hoping it's back in the newer models. If not, I may look elsewhere. It's absurd that you have to buy and carry around another piece of hardware just to steam to another screen.
ga11ga11, 28 Jun 2016please test battery life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I have been working the day light out if my s7 active. And so far battery is great!
I got one of these s7 active phones, and I came across a issue you may want to look into more. Because it is a nice phone I figured I would put a nice SD card in it. I got me a 128 gig by PNY and the phone some times it sees it and other times it won't. When it don't see the card in file manager I go to settings and it sees it fine. I unmount it, then remount it. And it will work again. But I never notice it having this problem until I use the camera, and it tells me. "No SD card default changed to device" so then I will unmount, and remount. Then it works again. This issue already cause a bad spot on the first card I bought. But the store did swap it out for another one no problem.
Please look into this issue
jc_philippines, 30 Jun 2016is this unit (samsung galaxy S7 active) also available @philippine market?No, sorry. You can go to greenhills to check.
jc_philippines, 30 Jun 2016is this unit (samsung galaxy S7 active) also available @philippine market?the review said it may not ship out of usa because its exclusive for at&t operator. so I think no. maybe you could buy it on amazon or ebay and import it to your country then unlock it from its operator.
but thats hard and expensive way. I think buying caterpillar s60 would be cheaper for you
is this unit (samsung galaxy S7 active) also available @philippine market?
I think it is. Soon.
The S6 Active was released here last year through AT&T.
