Samsung Galaxy S4 Active Review

 

Samsung released its latest Galaxy S Android smartphone earlier this year, the Samsung Galaxy S4, which since then has sold like hotcakes as it's been released globally. One thing we didn't expect was for there to be an additional version […]

It may not offer as many bells and whistles as the Galaxy S4, but the Galaxy S4 Active is still a very good smartphone that will be able to offer the same overall Galaxy S4 experience in a durable case. In the world of durable handsets, we’re confident...

Review Samsung Galaxy S4 Active GT-I9295 Smartphone

 

Refined water lover. Samsung slips a 5-inch TFT screen with Full

IP certification; TFT with stable image from many angles; Full HD; Excellent connectivity options; Well thought-through controls under water

Throttling SoC when under load for an extended period; Speaker is spine-chilling at high volume; Middle-of-the-road battery life

Real outdoor competition is currently just the Sony Xperia Z and maybe the HTC Butterfly, as it does have an IPX5 certification.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active Review

 

Rugged design stands up to tough conditions; Impressive battery life; Can use with work gloves; Easy to replace battery

No cellular connectivity; Relatively low performance scores; Lackluster audio quality

Although it lacks 4G, this business-focused tablet is durable enough to withstand almost any job site, and it has the battery life to go the distance.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active review: Sporty, splashy fun, but not truly rugged

 

Quite a few smartphones these days can claim to be waterproof, but you have to hand it to Samsung's Galaxy S4 Active for turning that characteristic into a camera feature. Specs-wise, that waterproof camera is the only element that justifies the...

Samsung's Galaxy S4 Active has a sporty design, takes strong daylight photos, and delivers the majority of Android 4.2 features. It also has a great speakerphone.

Aqua mode is fixed focus, the S4 Active takes weak low light shots, and the phone isn't as durable as its name suggests. Its 8-megapixel camera is lower resolution than the original Galaxy S4's.

Choose the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active for its sporty style, fast internals, and underwater camera fun, but pass if you're an image snob or seek a truly rugged phone.

Battle of the waterproof phones: Samsung Galaxy S4 Active vs. Sony Xperia Z

 

A waterproof smartphone is a nice idea, but they've always been kind of terrible. Casio has been making its line of Gz'One rugged smartphones for years, but they've always been a disappointment in...

Waterproof and rugged ; Excellent camera ; Great performance ; Gorgeous display

Rugged design still feels unpleasant and cheap to hold ; Performance can suffer in odd places

The regular S4, with one nice add-on

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (AT&T) Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active brings water resistance, a louder speaker and better outdoor readability for the same price of the regular S4.

Dust- and water-resistant design; Underwater photo/video feature; Louder speaker than regular S4; Great array of special features; Better outdoor viewability than original S4

Lower camera resolution than original S4; LCD lacks rich colors of AMOLED; Heavier and thicker than regular S4

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active brings water resistance, a louder speaker and better outdoor readability for the same price of the regular S4.

Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active (AT&T)

 

The Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active remixes the successful S 4 with a waterproof coating for the accident-prone, but the camera suffers.

Waterproof. Excellent speakerphone. Super fast processor. Latest version of Android.

Camera isn't quite as good as standard S 4. Not actually rugged.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active review: Uncharted waters

 

IP67 certification - can spend up to 30 minutes in up to 1m of water, Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE; quad-band 3G with HSPA; LTE, 5" 16M-color 1080p TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen with Gorilla Glass 3, Android OS v4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz UI, Quad-core...

Camera downgraded to 8MP, Screen is TFT, not Super AMOLED, Thicker and heavier than regular Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z, No FM radio, Shared camera interface makes framing tricky, No thermometer or hygroscope

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is certainly worthy of carrying the Galaxy S4 name, but are there genuine reasons to pick it over the regular S4? The IP57-level water resistance is nice, but it's not something that can't be added with a third-party case....

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active review: a top-tier phone in a water-resistant package

 

After Samsung's latest product push in London, we have nothing short of a Galaxy S 4 franchise on our hands. While the company unveiled its expected Mini

Attractive, comfortable design ; Effective water-resistant features ; Fluid everyday performance

Disappointing battery life ; Lower-quality display than GS4

With a water-resistant casing and a comfortable, attractive design, Samsung's Galaxy S4 Active is a strong option for outdoorsy -- and clumsy -- types. Just don't expect all the bells and whistles of the original Galaxy S 4.
