Looks tougth. The iris scanner is faster then apple face id because there is a setting on the samsung which allows for instant unlock whist no swiping the screen.
The back cover is totally ugly especially the 4 corners, honestly. This is the marketing strategies, if you want durability you will lost the beauty, but if you want more beautiful phone you will lose the durability and bezel-less will also losing the selfie quality and losing the fingerprint scanner at a nice placement.
Why does the shortcut button have to become the Bixby button?! Why Samsung???
ISN'T THIS PARAGRAPH WRONG??
"The Galaxy S8 Active captures images at a resolution of 4032x3024 pixels with its 12MP sensor. However, you have the option to change the image's aspect ratio from the native 4:3 sensor. Thing is, we'd advise against this since it crops pixels away from the sensor, leaving you with a smaller field of view. If you still want to, you can crop the frame to a 16:9 aspect ratio or 18.5:9 so the image fits perfectly within the entire area of the phone."
TRY TAKING A 4:3 VS 16:9 PICTURE..
YOU MAY BE SURPRISED THAT THE 16:9 IS THE CROPPED VERSION AND NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND (WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE PICTURE, NOT YOUR PHONE DISPLAY. THOUGH THE DISPLAY MAY BE FULLSCREEN IN 16:9, THE PICTURE IN 4:3 RATIO CAPTURES A WIDER VIEW. TRY IT FOR YOURSELF.)

Anonymous, 28 Oct 2017I have just purchased the phone. I have read all the comments and I have my own opinion. Y... moreI'd want it with a nice case to further protect it and the built-in protection because even though the phone is basically made with a case, that non-removable case can get messed up in no short time, plus there are still reports of broken glass, so extra protection is needed. Also, I wish Samsung (and others) would stop the madness or region-locking phones by disabling bands.
IMO, the mistake made by Samsung since the S4 Active was not making an optional "Active Case", as was available for the S4 Active. I found mine purely by mistake and hands down, this is the best addition to these phones. I've dropped mine numerous times with no damage. Plus it's cheap- 10-15 Euros and gives those who want it extra protection with a minimal size penalty. Combined with some hardened glass protector, it's superb and one reason I still stay with this old phone. I know the phones have built-in ruggedization on the cases, but falls damage the bumpers and don't provide the most protection for the phone.
