This phone is awesome, but it is only dust and water resistant. It will not take a fall very well, and the screen will likely shatter easier on the active than on the regular S4 because it is made with gorilla glass 2 instead of gorilla glass 3. And despite being advertised as water resistant and samsung encouraging people to take it in the water, water damage is not covered under warranty. It is amazing that they managed to make a device with a removable back water resistant, but I think they should have made the back seal better to let in less water. I have heard about people saying their phone broke after putting it under water while properly sealed, but I have not had any problems with this and from what I can tell it takes very good pictures under water, and water doesn't seem to have much of an effect unless you don't seal it properly. The camera is a slight downgrade from the normal s4 however at 8 MP rather than 13. I would also recommend buying a case for it, because it is not shock resistant and will break if dropped. I also prefer the look and feel of this device to the S4, as it is slightly larger and heavier, which makes it feel more durable and the texture makes it easier to hold on to.

I went into the ATT store planning to buy the Galaxy Note 3 with a 2 year contract. I enjoy reading in bed, and wanted something that was a larger screen for reading, but had concerns about the size. I spoke to the sales guy and decided to pick up the Galaxy Tab 7.0 along with this phone instead. I get the larger screen for Kindle books, and a more portable phone. Best of both worlds. My previous phone was a Samsung Attain (MetroPCS) and suffered form horrible battery life, which I solved with an extended battery. I have concerns and reservations about this solution for the S4 Active as this would be a 3rd party solution and the Samsung quality control is not there leaving me to wonder if I would keep the water resistant/dust resistant feature. So far I am less than impressed with the battery life of this phone, but am still working on settings to see what I can do about it. Additionally the phone seems to recharge very slowly when connected to the usb port of either my work laptop (Lenovo) or personal laptop (Asus), but when plugged into my car charger it charges much faster, more on that as I investigate they why of that. Display is Great, bright, vibrant and clear. The phone speaker for non-speaker phone calls is very clear, the speaker phone is less clear, but still decent quality. I am buying a shockproof case that will add to the water resistance of this model and hopefully prevent screen damage. The IP67 ceritifcation is nice, even nicer would be if Samsung would look at creating a phone as nice looking and feature rich as the S4 to meet the US Army MIL-STD-810 specification, or at least come close. Granted I'm not much worried about Explosive or Pyro shock, but the protection from broken screen would be great. My last issue is that the phone is IP67 but is not warrentied against water damage if used properly, my belief is that Samsung did this because the cover on the USB port appears to be a bit flimsy and prone to breakage, thus letting in water. I could be wrong. Over all the phone meets most of my expectations, if I can solve my battery life dilema I will be a happy camper. There is little use in having an active phone if you have to keep it plugged in 100% of the time to keep a battery charged. Solar charger might be something to look into. The price on this phone prevents me from giving it 5 stars for Value.

    This phone was the worst! It froze all the time, was very slow and battery did not last long. I would recamend the S6 and S7 but not this one!

      I love my S4 Active. For the past few years I have used many facets of my device. I loved it so much, when my husband wanted to upgrade phones, I didn't want to....until he got me a S7 Edge.....I fell in love with my upgrade instantly!! You can't beat a Samsung :-)

              This is actually my 3 Galaxy phone and they just keep getting better. My S3 lasted forever, my S6 Active is awesome as well as the S4 Active. Wrap it in a Ballistic case and it's unbreakable.

                    Samsung Galaxy S4 is very durable and last a very long time. This phone has held up so well without any additional case or screen protectors. I have dropped it several times and its even been fully emerged in water. And it turned on and off no problem. Great for someone that is hard on phones and or has a job that requires a lot of hard labor. Perfect for a child's first phone don't have to worry that it won't last unless they lose it. In that case make sure you have location on at all times and download device manager, which will locate your phone if loss or stolen. This phone has so many options/features which you can basically have it do what ever you would like, just like a your computer. I have really enjoyed this phone just need a little more memory and your good to go.

                        So I had an iPhone 4s and was looking for something different so I tried the Galaxy S4 Active, and I never looked back. I love the fact that you can remove and replace the battery manually and it has Micro-SD expansion slot! I don't know why they got rid of those features! I also love that the charging slot is Micro-USB! My PS4 controllers, digital camera, Kindle and phone all use the SAME CHARGER. It's freaking awesome! Screen is bright and clear and touch sensitivity is great! The only downside I have noticed is that the signal strength is not quite what the iPhone 4s was under the same network (AT&T), but it is still pretty good. I am extremely happy with this phone and will use it until it crumbles to dust in my hand.

I've had this s4 active since it hit the market wouldn't trade it for any other phone.
