    • Maximizing durability
      Recognizing the demands of a dynamic lifestyle, the GALAXY S4 Active was engineered to keep active users connected as they explore and experience the world around them.

    • Explore longer with powerful performance
      An active lifestyle requires plenty of energy, and the GALAXY S4 Active offers a long-lasting and powerful user experience. Striking color and stunning resolution on the device's beautiful 5.0" Full HD TFT LCD screen (443 PPI) makes playing the newest games or watching hours of video easy on the eyes. And with 'Glove Touch', cold weather is no longer a problem since the touchscreen can be fully operated while wearing gloves. With an 8-megapixel rear camera, users can easily share their vivid experiences while on the go. Unique to the GALAXY S4 Active camera, 'aqua mode' can be used to increase visual quality and clarity for enhanced underwater images and video. The volume key located on the side of the device can be used as a camera key, allowing users to easily and quickly open the camera application to capture photo and video the moment it happens. Additionally, the camera transforms into a powerful LED flash light to assist in low-light and nighttime activities with a simple long press of the volume key.
    • Richer and fuller life experience
      The GALAXY S4 Active is designed with a seamless interface that incorporates popular features of the GALAXY S4. 'S Travel (Trip Advisor)' offers travel assistance, local information, and recommendations to provide a more seamless experience in an unfamiliar environment. 'S Translator' makes international travel easy by providing instant text or voice translation for emails and text messages. The camera interface is designed to make capturing and sharing meaningful moments intuitive and more engaging with multiple shooting modes including 'Drama Shot', which allows users to see all the action in one continuous time-lapse, and 'Sound and Shot', which uniquely stores sound and voice together with the image to capture the moment in an immersive visual/audio format. With 'Story Album', photos taken with the GALAXY S4 Active are collected and sorted according to a user's timeline, geo-tagging information or a specific event to instantly create an organized photo album. While watching a video, the video pauses when you look away and starts right up again when returning to view, saving vital battery life and time spent rewinding. 'Air View' lets you preview the content of an email by simply hovering your fingers over the screen, which saves time and data. With 'Air Gesture', you can change the music track, scroll up and down on a web page, or accept a call with a simple wave of the hand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by SURVIVED BEING ON DROPPED OUT OF A WINDOW ON THE MOTORWAY! I was a passenger in a car taking a photo on the motorway, thought id get a clearer a view with the window down as I turned to press the window down, the wind took my phone out of the window at 60/70MPH!! we pulled over on a hard shoulder and thankfully, it wasnt busy so my partner ran up the motorway and got my phone which was in two parts, the case and the phone its self&#59; minus the battery! The only damage to the phone was a scuff on the corner of the case and no battery!! Couldnt believe it! no scratches, or dents! Soo happy with this phone, i could have upgraded to the S5 because there was no more actives in the store however, I really want to have the Active. so i just brought another battery for it and it still works perfectly:) 12 July 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice phone but not that important to Samsung It's a good phone and it is genuinely useful that it's waterproof. The screen is gorgeous and it's very fast as well. But the cover over the charging socket is fiddly and looks fragile. Samsung has a wireless charging option for the "proper" Galaxy S4 but not for the S4 Active even though the Active would benefit from it more. Will Samsung make a wireless charging option for the S4 Active? They're not saying. It's also running an old version of Android (4.2.2) which means it doesn't support Knox yet as that needs 4.3. Who knows if/when that will actually happen. This is Samsung's biggest problem IMO. They make great phones but they've got so many of them now they struggle to support and develop them properly after they've shipped. It's a real shame. 15 December 2013
    Rated 3 out of 5 by my s4 active I got the active when it came out because of the water resistant feature. The design of the phone is ok could be better. The phone sould have had the same dimensions as the s4 so you could get more acceries. The phone also should have had the same pixels for the cameras. The phone worked fine until about a month ago. The led indicator stopped letting me know I had a text or missed call. Now I have purple lines on my main camera. I have no scratches on the lens and no dirt. The front camera is fine no lines. The rear cam shows the lines in pics and video. I keep the phone in a case as well. I also clean the phone regularly. So the active is a great phone at first but quickly goes down on my ratings fetures on a phone should last more than a few months... 21 May 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by almost otto proof on my 3rd not a great thing but now 2 lost and one casino incident , rarely use a case , "active" ive dropped it from over 3mtrs maybe 3.5 playing spotify while working ( sparks ) and one when it flew otta of my hand and no damage other then a dink to the outer bezel (iphone look at it the wrong way and it smashes !) would recommend ,tested the ip rating , well youve got-to ( puddles ,paddling pool ect )otherwise buy a straight phone, if only it had theft proof id give it 10/10, s5 not likely s6 maybe 21 April 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Badly supported product This could be a great phone but it's been let down by the fact that Samsung don't support it. It's got great hardware but can't take advantage of Google's latest performance improvements of Android. Samsung haven't produced support to upgrade the phone, which means lots of great features that are available on other Samsung devices, aren't on the S4 Active. So if you want a waterproof phone you're better getting the S4 and a waterpoof case or going to another manufacturer. 30 December 2013
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Yet again poor internal memory I was so excited when the S4 was released but when found out about the poor internal memory thought i'd hang on in the hope that the new models to be released would improve this due to all the negative feedback Samsung received. Unfortunately it seems the new versions once again don't deliver.... such a same as otherwise i'd jump at this handset 08 July 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Phone Ok i hae had this phone for a month or so now and i use it for alot of things i do alot of road biking and find it great with it clamped to my handbars as it tracks my rides for me the big plus side is the fact its waterproof so saves having to put it into a case were i cant use the phone. Tha camera on this phone also works extremely well too 18 October 2013
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Not what I had expected!! I am now on my 4th ACTIVE since Sept. The first 2 phones had the "black screen of death" and the 3rd was damaged in WATER ,the phone was securely sealed and I also had the floater cover on it!!!! I am under contract with the phone and that is the only reason I keep getting new ones, At&t will not replace it with a new model. WORTHLESS!!! 08 December 2013
