For me it costs too much. Ill take S6 active or regular S7 with rugged case.
.DeadPool., 09 Jun 2016Another Active version(which no body buy) that is far superior in battery capacity than the ma... morei had the S5 Active and i will stick to the active version of this phone for various reason.
1. it is considerably more robust, (i know i may need a tank phone, but this one actually hold strong enough, i busted two note 2 Screens, NO MORE) with the active phones)
2. the water proof is a must for me.. (yes the other one have it, but still fragile screen, my first iphone died on the rain while i was riding through new zealand)
3. the design of the active has physical buttons, which make it a lot easier to handle when your hands are moody, there is rain, or even take random underwater pictures when you don't have your amazing Gopro by your side)
about the battery, i think it make sense to have a bigger capacity because if you are really an active person and are outdoors all the time, you would definitely not have a plug to recharge, and believe me, you would highly appreciate that extra battery in an emergency.
people that is less outdoorsy can always go for the normal versions and it is always likely to find a car or wall charger somewhere around.
i love these specs, it is just tooo expensive right now, basically a nice descent computer!
4000mAh. it's like they hard wired the tab E 9.6's battery to an s7 and stuck it in a permanent otterbox. lol
How do people complain about not being able to take out the battery? WHY would you EVER need too??? Plus the damn thing is basically indestructible, do you really think you could do that AND have a removable battery? Buy a moto E or something if thats what you want.
michael, 08 Jun 2016the s7 active is waterproof with s6 s5 s4 active.its water resistant. not waterproof. theres no phone capable of that
Another Active version(which no body buy) that is far superior in battery capacity than the main S line.Nice strategy Samsung.By the way,I don't mind a slightly thicker phone if it means bigger battery.
They continue making s active, but not the s mini!? I wish Samsung would make the s7 mini :(
AnonD-444894, 08 Jun 2016buy it from AT&T then. or from Amazon.the problem is that buying without contract directly from att would mean a super high price. even s6 active is amounting to $650 after taxes at the moment. I can get a s7 edge with proper warranty in India around that price.
And if i buy from ebay or amazon I would get a refurbushed product from a US seller who would be unreachable in case of any issues once I am in India.
A fantastic phone in terms of specs and is a great upgrade over S6 active too. It can be bought over the current Galaxy S7 but it has a limited availability as its exclusive to T-mobile only. comparison wise its a little thicker than the last generation Active but its offers more battery at 4000 mAH. It also provides a fingerprint scanner which was not available on the previous GEN. It also offers a SD card slot this time over its predecessor.
Vinny-boy, 08 Jun 2016Nah this phone is not cool at all out of 10 i'd rate it 2that's not the point of this phone at all
Pretty interesting, actually. Yes, perhaps you can put a protector around a S7 or S7 Edge to make them a little more resistant, too, but another selling-factor for this phone may be the 4000 mAh-battery!
The regular S7 only comes with 3000 mAh, after all, and not everyone is too fond of the Edge-screens on the S7 Edge (3600 mAh battery). So those who want more beef out of their S7 and who also don't mind more bulk will most likely give the S7 Active a shot.
veer, 07 Jun 2016If ,it had the front facing speakers. It would have been the best phone ever! What more you... moreSo you're not even bothered by the non-removable battery. What a world we live in, where everybody accepts planned obsolescence and doesn't care about reducing electronic waste.
