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....

Review: Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (Video)

 

Das Samsung Galaxy S4 Active ist die sportlichere Variante vom Galaxy S4 : Es ist robuster gebaut - wiegt deswegen natürlich auch etwas mehr - und es hält in einem Meter Wassertiefe ungefähr eine halbe Stunde lang durch. Aber wie macht es sich...

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

 

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.

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

Disappointing battery life ; Lower-quality display than GS4

Some may say the Galaxy S 4 Active is a gimmick; an attempt to squeeze as much momentum out of the GS4 brand as possible. True, it's more "rugged lite" than "military-grade," and its display literally pales in comparison to its predecessor's. But water...

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active preview: First look

 

Add together the brawn of the Xcover and the brains of a Galaxy S4 and you get the S4 Active. The actual flagship can handle any digital task you throw at it, but the Active version can cope with the grittier side of life. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active...

There already are water-resistant cases for the Samsung Galaxy S4, so for under $40 you can obtain the one true advantage the S4 Active has over the S4. So why would anyone buy the S4 Active when it doesn't have a Super AMOLED screen or a 13MP camera?

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active review

 

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 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.

As I said in the original review: It's like Microsoft Office, in that it's packed with features. But you know what? People love Microsoft Office, because everybody finds what they need in it, and they don't all find or need the same things. The Samsung...

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 S 4 Active Review

 

Samsung either has an addiction or a compulsion: whatever the reason, the company can't help pumping out Galaxy S 4 variants, like the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active. A waterproof, dust-proof version of the flagship Android smartphone, the Active model...

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active almost did enough that we could legitimately ask why anybody would opt for the regular model. Still, the slight increase in bulk – which we’re not opposed to, seeing as we prefer the hand-feel of the Active version – and...
