208g and use the back fingerprints in a 5.8inch device, it must be a strong man to hold the giants beast.
I upgraded from the s5 active to the s8 active. Best phone I have ever owned. Battery life is amazing! Love it.
fdadf, 11 Aug 2017thank god it does not have the stupid edgeyea. edge is annoying when ur doing games,notes,typing,and more prone to cracks and scratches when dropped
Cpt. Power, 18 Aug 2017Anyway garbage for 850. Which not many people are willing to pay.
So making phones like this... moreJudging a high end phone specialty being garbage is nosense.
Think about its proccessor,screen resolution,special features,etc.
You're clearly just a guy who hates devices when you can't afford.
Wakz, 19 Aug 2017U clearly just a samsung dude. Atleast you could find cheaper with same same military test pas... moreWould you please give me a link to a smartphone with the latest Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB or more of RAM, and top end specs in a touch case with flat screen??? I have been looking around like crazy, and all other tough phones I can find have older, slower guts.
Mikey, 15 Aug 2017Holy cow! Next to the S7 Edge this thing weighs a TON (feels twice as heavy). It's close to ... moreYou buy a phone because of its brand. Theres a lot of rugged phone that are better than this for that specific purpose.
Anonymous, 17 Aug 2017it's a specialty flagship. That's why. drag a regular S8 around on a weekend long kayakin... moreU clearly just a samsung dude. Atleast you could find cheaper with same same military test passed ;). Why would u bring ur phone in a kayak anyway
I have only 3 cons from this phone
- Fingerprint scanner not at right position and
- Costly should be atleast $600
hilmy, 18 Aug 2017not dual sim ????there is two version
dual sim and only 1 sim
There's NO WAY a `S8 Active' has a 2560x1440 screen, With the S8 and S8+ having 2960x1440, why would they go back to what the Note 4 had! I want my PPI! (Ahem,.. for Gear VR ;")

Cpt. Power, 08 Aug 2017Can someone tell me what on this garbage cost 850 quids???it's a specialty flagship. That's why.
drag a regular S8 around on a weekend long kayaking trip and see how well that goes. I don't worry about it with the active phones. have had them since the S4 and never broken one.
can't say the same for the note 2, s5, s6 and s7 edge that have been dragged along on those same trips. they require extra cases, dry boxes and everything else.
AR76, 12 Aug 2017No Radio - AGAIN?
How about Tri Sim, for the international traveler ?
Samsung ... moremost people wouldn't care about fm radio in their phone.
its all about ram management, bigger ram doesnt mean it will perform better.
look at OP5 with 8gb ram, it doesnt improve anything and compare it to 2gb or 3gb ram on iphones.
fyi, samsung has been the market leader for years (in terms of sales and market share).
Next to the S7 Edge this thing weighs a TON (feels twice as heavy). It's close to double the thickness while loosing the curved screen.
But that battery is a BEAST.
Fresh off the charger in the morning to a 35 minute call. Knocked it down to a whopping 99%! The speed of the unit isn't earth shattering next to the S7, but it's no slouch.
Few minor things that I have to get used to though. for starters it's slippery on the sides. No physical buttons is weird and the location of the finger print reader is just weird.
PKM1, 08 Aug 2017Looks nice but a little bit too expensive. It should have been $700-750 to make a killing in t... moreIt's available on the Samsung website for $700. Currently still exclusive to AT&T though.
