Product Description

Product Description

With the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active we get a 5" 1080x1920 pixels Full HD LCD display in a 9mm thin phone, a quad-core 1.9 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, an 8 MP camera on the back, LTE/HSPA+ radio, infrared beamer, 16 GB of internal memory plus a microSD slot, a decent 2600 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2 to run it all, with all the goodies of the latest TouchWiz Nature UX. The outdoorsy features don't stop with the IP67 certification, making the phone dust- and water-proof up to three feet deep for up to 30 minutes. Samsung has thrown in the "Glove Touch" mode, which lets you operate the display with mittens on, and the "Aqua Mode" in the camera app interface, which helps make better underwater pictures and video. Long-press the volume key up, and the powerful LED light becomes a torch, and that same volume rocker down can be used as a camera shutter key directly from locked mode.

From the Manufacturer

Live life to the fullest with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (view larger).

Enjoy the freedom of being able to take your smartphone almost anywhere with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active for AT&T. It's designed to enhance your smartphone experience as you explore environments from the most rugged mountain trails and roughest rivers to the everyday thrills and spills of commuting.

The fully sealed design keeps dust particles out and protects against water damage for up to 30 minutes of submergence at a depth of one meter. Equipped with a water-resistant earphone jack, the Galaxy S4 Active frees you to use earphones in more adventurous conditions, in the same way you've used them in normal ones. And the 5-inch display is made with tough, scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass 2, so you can toss it in your gym or camping bag without worrying if it'll get wet or dirty.

The advanced 8-megapixel rear camera is complemented by a front-facing 2-megapixel camera for video chats. Whether capturing every moment of a wild rafting trip or taking a great underwater photo in the pool, the Galaxy S4 Active’s unique construction enables you to capture amazing moments previously impossible using a normal smartphone.

Running the Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system, the Galaxy S4 Active is powered by a 1.9 GHz quad-core processor. It features 16 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded using optional microSD memory cards up to 64 GB. Its 2600 mAh battery provides up to 17 hours of talk time and 13 days (312 hours) of standby time.

Total Control of Your Content

Enjoy a smartphone that intuitively knows the best way for you to experience content on the fly. Air View instantly previews photos, files, links and text when you hover your finger over the phone. Never lose your place while watching video with Smart Pause. Look away and it stops what you're watching until you return, so you never miss a second of action. With Air Gesture, you can skip songs, check notifications or answer a call with a wave of the hand. And Smart Rotation keeps your screen oriented the right way so you get the most out of movies and e-books.

Remember Everything in HD

Equip yourself with a camera so sharp it blurs the line between smartphones and professional photography. The 8-megapixel camera includes an Aqua Mode that lets you take pictures under water, while the Drama Shot mode tracks every part of that high dive with striking results. The Eraser lets you delete random people who wander into your frame, and the Live Filters accentuate the mood of your pictures with dozens of treatments. When you're done snapping, use Story Album to share your pictures or turn them into a printed photo book.

AT&T's 4G Network

AT&T boasts the largest 4G mobile broadband network in the United States, covering more than 292 million people with a combination of two layers of 4G technology: the 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) network and an older technology called HSPA+ that delivers near-4G speeds. AT&T's 4G LTE network is currently live in 261 markets across the U.S. (as of May, 2013) with more markets continually being added. AT&T expects to cover 300 million people with its 4G LTE network by the end of 2014.

With 4G LTE technology, you'll get mobile Internet speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G, enabling you to upload a photo in 6 seconds, download a song in 4 seconds, and download HD movies in minutes and apps almost instantly. You can expect average download data rates of 13 megabits per second (Mbps) and 6 Mbps for uploads in real-world, loaded network environments.

If you are not in an area served by 4G LTE, you'll be able to connect to AT&T's HSPA+ enhanced backhaul network, which delivers speeds up to 4x faster than AT&T's HSPA 3G network. With the combination of 4G LTE and HSPA+, you'll enjoy higher data speed averages than other networks.

In areas where either AT&T's 3G or 4G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the AT&T EDGE network, which offers availability in more than 13,000 US cities and along some 40,000 miles of major highways.

And it includes faster orientation changes, quicker switching between recent apps, and smoother and more consistent rendering throughout your mobile device. And widgets work like magic.

The Galaxy S4 Active is pretty much identical to the regular Galaxy S4 with a few exceptions. I have a Galaxy S4 that I use as my main phone but I also got the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active yesterday. So there are a few tiny differences between the regular Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy S4 Active. First, it has three mechanical buttons instead of having two capacitive and one physical button that's on the regular S4. Second, the display that's used on the S4 Active is a TFT instead of the regular super AMOLED HD display that's on the regular S4. The TFT display is great with viewing angels but it doesn't have very good dark colors, especially blacks. Another thing that's different is the camera mode that's called aqua mode. When used, it disables the touchscreen from being responsive to prevent it from messing it up. When you are underwater, you have to use the hardware buttons to take pictures. The camera is also 8MP instead of 13MP that's in the regular S4.

These are some of the things that that are different from the regular Galaxy S4:

Pros:

+Display / Screen:

The regular Galaxy S4 uses a Super AMOLED HD display but the S4 Active uses a TFT display which has better viewing angles but the blacks are not as good as the regular S4. The AMOLED display that's used in the regular S4 produces better dark colors because it turns off all the black pixels to save battery. Everything else about the display is the exactly same from the resolution (1080 x 1920) to the pixel density (441). It's also using the exact same Gorilla Glass 3 that's on the regular Galaxy S4.

+Android OS:

The S4 Active ships with the most up to date version of Android, Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) which is exactly the same as the regular S4.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great idea. But a flawed product... August 17, 2013
Format:Wireless Phone
I wanted to love the Samsung S4 Active. I do kayaking, downhill skiing, and a fair amount of bike commuting in sometimes lousy weather. I think the "regular" S4 is among the very best of today's smartphones (along with the HTC One and the iPhone 5), so the idea of a weather-resistant version of the S4 sounded like the best of all worlds for me. I bought one in July 2013.

The problem is that the S4 Active has proved to NOT be dependably water resistant. My S4 Active got bricked by being on a lawn chair in my yard for an hour when the lawn sprinkler came on. Android discussion forums show that quite a few other S4 Active owners have had a similar experience to mine. Some tech magazine reviewers have reported the same.

I spent many hours in late July at AT&T retail shops and service centers attempting to get them to replace my water-damaged Active S4, and for two weeks they refused to do so. So, I went two weeks without a working phone. After AT&T and Samsung began getting increasingly frequent bad press regarding the failure rate of water-damaged S4 Actives, they changed their support policy on August 6, 2013. Water-damaged Active S4's purchased originally at AT&T retail shops or over the web will be replaced ONCE (and only once) by AT&T. After that, no further replacements will be made for you if your S4 Active fails due to water damage.

So...I LOVE the updated Android operating system and the overall features of the S4 Active. But I no longer trust the water resistant marketing claims of Samsung and AT&T regarding this phone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loving the larger screen. August 7, 2013
Format:Wireless Phone
I had an Samsung S3 a few years ago but have had a Windows phone (Samsung) and an Iphone 4s in between buying the S4 Active recently. I was really bored with the iPhone so I had planned on switching back to the Windows Phone (I know I'm in the minority but I'm a fan of the tiles) but after seeing the S4 that a friend of my had I was sold. I ended up going with the Active since I tend to take my phone everywhere with me and I would rather not be so worried about getting it wet or spending $250.00 fixing a sensor because of dropping my phone into a cup of coffee as I did with my iphone. So far I really enjoy the user experience with the big screen. It makes viewing movies and internet so much easier and better on the eyes. I've found the touchscreen function to not work quite as well as my iPhone 4s as I seem to have to be more deliberate with how I touch the screen. The default samsung touch keyboard was terrible IMHO as the letters were too far apart and it just seemed stretched. I switched to the google keyboard within the first few days and it's much more efficient as it is very similar to the iphone keyboard but has easier word replacement and seems to figure out my typos better.

I don't mind the touchwiz interface as it has tons of functionality and for the most part is intuitive after a little research. I am disappointed that the active can not use the standard S4 cases and it was a pain finding one that I liked (I bought this Diztronic case from Amazon - B00DEQ4QW0

The battery life is a disappointment for sure as it is actually worse for the Active than the standard S4 but since the batteries are replaceable and not too expensive that is easy to overcome.
