You need to look at more phones if you think the ssis a good phone.
Look at this one.

Do you know whats the reason of s7 active being a thicker phone? because they listen to the customers before who complains about the battery life... i prefer having a thick phone but with a monster battery. 4 cores only? lemme tell you an example: 4 cores in s7 active is like a 4 professional basketball players in NBA and if you want 8 cores, it will look like you want 8 college basketball players. So each 4 cores carries heavier weghts than 8 cores because they are equally distributed. To conclude this, 4 cores (2.0 ghz above for each cores) = 8 cores (1.0 ghz above for each cores) and last but not the least, thicker but with juicier battery > thinner but with smaller battery. That's my opinion.
Love the Active series. Note 7 Active please, even with 5.5" screen !
Mikethetech, 16 Jun 2016A downgrade from the S6 active in my opinion... the S7 active is 1.3mm thicker, the primary ca... moreok, first, thickness doesn't mean a downgrade, it has better components and camera that's why it is thick, second, more pixels doesn't mean better quality, s7 has a bigger pixel size 1.4 compared to 1.12 of s6 which means more light to enter the lens = better quality, third, cpu speed is not based on cores, it has less but more powerful cores, it wouldn't reach 150K antutu scores if it isn't. Numbers doesn't mean anything, if you want to stick with your s6 active, go with it. But it is better if you will be informed right.

Dude the camera on this phone is the same as the normal s7, dont let the mega pixel count fool you
This phone is for me! It sounds like some iPhone people are making comments.
Mikethetech, 16 Jun 2016A downgrade from the S6 active in my opinion... the S7 active is 1.3mm thicker, the primary ca... moreOn paper, you might have a point. But in real world usage, the s7 active easily pulls ahead of the s6; bigger battery, better processor, much improved camera (more megapixels doesn't mean better camera), and all in all the phone is much improved over the s6 active. And I'm no dammy fanboy, in fact I really hate them.
This is better than the S6 Active. The S6 Active has a screen issue. A lot of cracked screens. I see a lot of complaints about that. Clearly not shatter resistant like the S7 Active. The S7 Active is just as water and dust resistant as the S6 Active and has an even bigger battery. Yeah, it sucks it's AT&T exclusive, but you can always get it and unlock it. It's what I do sometimes. Just make sure the LTE bands suit your needs. Also, if you can wait a bit, the S7 Active will be found on places like EBay and Amazon unlocked.

It means the CPU can handle the extra tasks with less cores being cheaper. The thickness 1.3 mm? You Will never notice that.
I have no idea why samsung creates more products and using Alphabets letters such waist. people get deceive. make a new model with good configuration which people can afford to buy , look at Iphone do they produce every one month new model. i think samsung as the good talent technology engineers but they keep produce like this , people will get fadeup. people are confuse which model to buy , also in every android phones any brand after one year phone get hangs then need to reset default. ..
Luis , 06 Jun 2016quad core????Yes it is quad core kryo.
But don't worry about the performance between quad core kryo vs octa core coz it works like this...
4 gym-like muscular men vs. 8 malnourished men
The reason why iPhone sticks with their dual core with high gpu performance plus super fast rom processing plus software optimization.

Talking about the camera, megapixels doesn't mean absolutely nothing. You can compare your photos at day from S6 Active with S7 Active and cannot see a downgrade at all.
And at night the S7 totallly exceeds not only S6, also every known phone.
If you want more battery, you need more space and weight. Nowadays it's impossible doing another way.
I see here a good improve in every single aspect.
