Towards the end of June the sibling to the Samsung Galaxy S4 was released on AT&T; the Galaxy S4 Active came with very similar features as its brother such as a 1.9GHz processor, 5-inch display and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
However, what it did do was bring a rugged shell to the Galaxy S4 range, so how is it holding up now it is just over two months since its launch? Below we have for you an insightful video that looks into this very topic in what is a Samsung Galaxy S4 Active review with hindsight.
Apart from the ruggedized shell it only comes with an 8-megapixel camera instead of the 13-megapixel shooter from the flagship model. Some of you are not too worried about losing those megapixels because they have the better build for those who will give their handset a harder life.
Functionality is very similar to the main Galaxy S4, but because it looks and feels different in the hand it isn’t like a traditional Samsung device. We are not sure if this is a good or bad thing, so we’d love to know your thoughts?
If you want a device with a white display then the Active is the better model to go with, as the standard Galaxy S4 model has a yellowish tint to it. For the most part this is a pretty good revisit to the Galaxy S4 Active, but the reviewer does like talking about the difference in camera quality far too much, so it seems the camera is of great importance to him.
