Phone stopped working after 8 months. Had to pay 160 dollars for data retrieval and have a new phone sent out. Not impressed. If samsung continues making shotty products I'll take my business elsewhere.
it's been so glitch. The phone always says it has water in the usb. Turning it on has been an issue sometimes it wont turn on unless i plug my charger in at the same time i hold volume down and power button. I've always bought actives this is the worst one yet.
I listen to my phones radio every day. Just download the station App. I like KCBI FM.
Howdy guys, would anyone know if Samsung s8 active will work in Asia if I buy an unlocked device in the the US?
I don't understand Samsung limiting this device to the US market.
AnonD-731529, 18 Jan 2018Sorry to piss on your bonfire, but the S8 active is not realy about aethetics to begin with. I... moreSo I've had one for a couple of months. S8 Active, that is. It has suffered two falls from approx. 3 feet in height and has three chips, two resulting in minor (so far) spiderwebbing.
I'll vouch for water resistance, shock resistance, I can't prove dust resistance (since I'm not in a dusty environment), but I can say with 100% certainty that the screens on these phones SUCK. And almost NOBODY will repair it, and not for less than $325. Before you ask, yes, I have a case with a raised bevel.
Functionally, the phone is a beast. Great camera, memory, speed, battery, etc. Good luck being able to use it for very long if you don't keep it in a magic case.
Why have a phone with all this power if the glass is so thin it chips and spiderwebs at a minimal drop?
I had an iPhone 5s and was happy to make the switch because, well, I despise the proprietary Apple business acumen. However, that iPhone 5s took several years of abuse and never had so much as a scratch on it.
hello! i was wondering what is the biggest micro sd card i can go up to with this phone? ty!

AnonD-724581, 20 Dec 2017No, there is not. The US Spec GS8Active doesnt have a radio.Next radio works on mine
I like the phone, the weight, the specs are good enough for daily use and the battery is SPOT ON! When the phone is in my pocket all day, hanging on my belt or very seldom to my ear since I'm a Bluetooth user and looks or aesthetics are of no concern because I could care less what a phone looks like or what other people know I'm using as long as it does what I need.... Long story short 4000mAh battery, 3.5mm jack, and expandable memory? make this a phone worth using

I... moreAs long as you happy with this kind of designs, I am sure I won't pick this as my rugged device. Even LG lugged design is still better option but I am more interested to Sony because the design is absolutely unique and gorgeous!
UltimateZeroSeconds, 09 Dec 2017The Japanese aesthetics always better than Korea. I have the great experience with the Xperia!... moreSorry to piss on your bonfire, but the S8 active is not realy about aethetics to begin with. It is all about rugged design that will sustain drops, fall, or impact. There is a reason why is there are bumpers in the corners as well less screen to body ratio compare to S8 (means more bezels) since more glass = more to break and S8 active removed the infinity screen so that upon impact, the side metal would absorb the force rather than the glass. Simple as that.
AnonD-724581, 20 Dec 2017No, there is not. The US Spec GS8Active doesnt have a radio.as far as i know, the phone is only available in north america
Anonymous, 12 Dec 2017Hi there, is there a FM-Radio built in, or is it possible to activate one? THXNo, there is not. The US Spec GS8Active doesnt have a radio.
