Samsung Galaxy S7 Active (titanium gray)

 

Rated IP68, the S7 Active is supposed to survive submersion in 5 feet of water (1.5 meters) for 30 minutes, but our further testing with the device found that's not consistently true.

The Galaxy S7 Active has extra long battery life and is resistant to dust, water and drops. It has has the same speedy performance, expandable storage and excellent camera quality as the original S7.

The bulky, plastic design feels cheap compared with the glass-and-metal S7 and the phone is expensive.

AT&T customers looking for a durable and high-end smartphone can't go wrong with the Galaxy S7 Active.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active review:

 

I praised Samsung's Galaxy S7 Active in my initial review -- for its beautiful 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution display, speedy processor, excellent 12-megapixel rear camera and the largest battery Samsung has ever put in a smartphone. But the failure of...

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active (AT&T)

 

With the Galaxy S7 Active, Samsung adds a shatter-resistant build and a bigger battery to the already spectacular Galaxy S7, making it the best rugged phone AT&T subscribers can get.

Rugged build. Fast performance. Long battery life. Excellent camera. Sharp, bright display. Customizable Active button.

Middling call quality.

Comparisons and Conclusions At $750, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active costs $55 more than the standard Galaxy S7. If you're the type of person who regularly needs to replace broken phones, that's a small price to pay compared with extended warranties or...

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active ( poseidon green camo)

 

While the Active doesn't have the S7's sleek metal and glass design, it does include a shatter-resistant screen, physical buttons and a military grade body. Perhaps the most appealing feature was its waterproofing. Samsung claimed the Active could...

Samsung Galaxy S7 active Review

 

Samsung's ruggedized cousin to its flagship Galaxy S smartphone has more to prove this year than ever. With the Galaxy S7 returning to a water-resistant body and picking up a larger 3,000 mAh battery, is there still a market for a separate Galaxy S7...

Tough, rugged construction ; Top-shelf processor and memory ; Superb camera ; Highly versatile software

Not for the style-concscious ; Battery life leaves something to be desired ; Pricier than the regular GS7 ; AT&T exclusive

Samsung delivers in a big way, but will we be buying?

Review: Samsung Galaxy S7 Active for AT&T

 

Samsung's latest semi-rugged smartphone for AT&T dials back the good looks of the Galaxy S7 in favor of a stronger, studier frame. The S7 Active is tough enough to take a tumble without the brick-like bulk of some fully rugged handsets. This Android...

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active review

 

It's brawn vs beauty but which is better? Should you pick the rugged Samsung Galaxy S7 Active over its sexier sibling? Let's find out in this full review.

Rugged design that's built to last ; Military standard protection ; Great shatter resistant display ; Exceptional battery life ; Reliable fingerprint sensor ; Stellar performance ; Vastly refined software experience ; Impressive camera ; Excellent...

Thicker than the Galaxy S7 and somewhat bulky ; Below average speaker ; Camera has increased noise reduction ; Software has carrier bloatware

The Galaxy S7 is one of the best smartphones on the market and even though the Active drops the premium looks, the rugged build and extra battery more than compensate.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active review: Bigger, beefier, more ACTIVE!!!

 

You'll be tempted to call this one rugged, but it's really just a more robust Galaxy S7, with a larger battery. And both of those things are very, very good — so long as you're OK with it only being available on AT&T.

33% larger battery than stock GS7 ; Great performance ; Takes a licking, keeps on ticking ; That display is still gorgeous

AT&T's bloatware has got to stop ; Stuck as an exclusive on AT&T ; Seam between display and body
