Samsung Galaxy S4 Active review

 

Like the normal S4 - but much more satisfying

Water resistant ; Excellent screen ; Fast, fluid OS

Average battery ; Bulkier than S4 ; Lower res camera

Ratings in depth What do you do when you create an incredibly lucrative brand? Milk it for everything it's worth, and it's that mentality that has led to the creation of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active.

The Galaxy S4's brother can survive being dunked underwater, but is it any good?

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active shares many qualities with the flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone: both phones have a 5in Full HD screen, 1.9GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. And both run Samsung's own take on Android 4.2 Jelly...

We really like the Galaxy S4 Active. It's got the kind of features that we wish the flagship smartphone has. There is a downgrade with some specifications but they don't seem like a big sacrifice. Performance is excellent and the neither display nor...

We go for a dunk with the newly-announced waterproof Samsung Galaxy S4 Active

Samsung wouldn't reveal a price for the Galaxy S4 Active at the launch event, so we'll have to wait a little closer to launch to find out what one will set you back. Expect the handset to go on sale in the coming months, from all the major UK networks...

With little in the way of price difference between the S4 and the S4 Active it’s hard to find a reason not to recommend the latter. It’s arguably nicer, certainly tougher, and even the differences in the camera output are negligible. The waterproofing...
