It is not the Samsung's fault if our phone got water damage due to the negligence of the user but the user itself.

That happen to me also and felt worried too but after some reseach I found out thats normal indeed. No need to worry about.
jakir, 29 Apr 2014me too, my S4 Active often swims in the waterJust got a swim with this phone. And its awesome. Problem is, loudspeaker is not as loud as before. What should I do?
Subjective to say if forcing user to properly seal the phone.
There are some level of protection, but it cannot guarantee water will never go into the phone.
No sensor or any obvious visible sign if the phone is not sealed properly.
This applied to other waterproof phone, like Sony Xperia Z, Z1, Z Ultra.
U can't tell if all port are properly sealed, which imply that extra care is needed when need to use it under water.
Those who are having water damage are considered unlucky, as the phone maker will only blame u not using it properly. Sigh....

Definitely NO thats why you got water damage, I have been putting my S4 Active in the water for so many rimes and guess what? I never had any water damage because I seal the back cover, USB cover very tightly. Just be responsible using this phone and you're on the go.

Im using my s4 active only for 1 month and 3 weeks because it has water damage. Its not true that its not water resistant. please be careful or its good not to try it to put in water.
alireza1120, 19 Apr 2014pls help me guys,i want to buy phone and i dont know buy s4 active or grand 2,pls give me ur opinionS4 active grand 2 so bad I have it the sound very bad
I hate it! Because Im loving it so much that every minute I keep using this device and cant concentrate on my job! Haha! I just love this phone, although it heats up when I play with it with any HD games (normal to any phone), its still amazing. S600 chipset is still fast, you know. Screen is very sharp and the camera is very good in still photos and videos. Browser is very fast and the motion, air gestures are just amazing, making some iphone and sony users drool.. Haha
can this phone shoot videos in slow motion ? because i can't find that feature in my s4 active .
Another Alan, 24 Apr 2014The unique part of this phone is, it has physical button. And... I always let people guess the... moreyes I agree on you, this phone wasn't released on some markets and owning this phone is really unusual. I haven't seen anyone using this phone ever in my country (most of them using regular S4) but myself only LOL. Proud user of this phone.
The unique part of this phone is, it has physical button. And... I always let people guess the model of this phone. Normally all of them can't guess out what model is it. And they don't believe there is a water resistant variant of Galaxy S4 even exist on this planet. Well, owning this phone is considered as owning a rare phone, which isn't available in some of the country.
And... most my friend also thought that the display of this phone is much better than their original S4,Note 3, or S3. Well... They don't even know it is an LCD display, that is so good to their eye than the much over saturated AMOLED display.
