The following would make this a true ACTIVE device: (1) If this is an outdoor phone, why it lacks GPS-BDS as per S8 & S8+. (2) Outdoor phone should have a radio!! This does not!!! (3) Being an outdoor device, it should have more than one very bright flashes for photography. (4) It should have Zoom (5) It should be able to get very close to small objects without loosing focus (6) Why is Bixby necessary on any phone?
On another note :) please remove bixby from the Note 8
If only it wasn't AT&T exclusive, I would buy it rather than the S8 because of the 4000mAh battery. :(
This is good. Probably this will be my favorite device. I use IPhone 7plus and Samsung galaxy note 5, but I am thinking to drop my note 5 for this device once it's out. I can't wait to lay my hands on this phone..
[deleted post]Awesome work. You've just proved you are super dumb! Your prize is: a ton of Cookies! Did the S8 blow? NO. Will the Active blow? NO.
All the Samsung top models looks same and expensive like everything from Samsung.
Only difference i see are bezels.
Bezel less phone is rubbish and ugly.
Like car without bumpers.
Or like woman without breasts :-)
Castro Orstad, 30 Jul 2017Mobile phones don`t have High end audio. Have never had and will never get.If you mean speakers, then in the future they may get a lot better as things tend to get better... but if you're talking about the DAC then that's a lie.
CrimsonD, 07 Jul 2017The devices are not the same due to resistance features, Active devices counts with MIL-STD-81... morenormal s8 you can use only on mall at home but that Samsung galaxy s8 active you can use that even when its apocalypse and that phone can stand when zombie are invading the city good for survival again zombie , werewolf , vampire , aliens and etc

Ricky Johnson , 24 Jul 2017Why not buy the LG G6 instead of this ugly looking version of the Galaxy s8 >Why not buy the LG G6
Galaxy has better navigation.
If you the active version why not a compact version ? S8 is to big , some of us , won t buy a phone that look like a tablet even no matter how good it is in rest
Ricky Johnson , 24 Jul 2017Why not buy the LG G6 instead of this ugly looking version of the Galaxy s8 Oh idk, because this ugly version of the s8 is actually a necessity for those who are very prone to breaking their phones, or those who are in need of that extra battery
Hope it have flat screen and bezels. Unless that its a crapz looking phone.
And as i bet a super expensive one from Samsung like everything.
Even for a crap they will ask 10 times more than the phone should cost
Price should be maximum at $499, but since its samsung they would have probably put $650 price tag
