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.
Please do a battery test of this one like you did in the previous versions
No Radio - AGAIN?
How about Tri Sim, for the international traveler ?

No edge, but they scrapped the durable hard plastic frame for a metal one that is more prone to scratches and dents. The textured back also feels cheaper than the one used for the last 2 Active models
EverythingApplePro, 09 Aug 2017Correct me if I'm wrong, the regular Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have screen resolutions of 2960x144... moreMan I see your point, but can you see how is the price in this phone is even more expensive than the original one just because is waterproof and those stuffs, so can you imagine if they places all those new features you want the price will be on clouds XD, and also it is the same model so it has to be in the same level no worse no better, but is making compensations on some features that the other one did not have as the waterproof and dustproof as we already mention.
AnonD-691061, 10 Aug 2017It is good phone but it does not have edgethank god it does not have the stupid edge
It is freaking awesome. I pre ordered one yesterday when it opened up, and have a meteor grey one on my doorstep by 1pm today. It is amazing, fast, and I'm fighting the urge to drop it to test it. The thing is stout, and looks like it will take a beating and walk away the winner.

Correct me if I'm wrong, the regular Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have screen resolutions of 2960x1440 pixels. Why does the Active only have 2560x1440?
