Samsung Galaxy S7 Active review

 

The best Android phone for your clumsy... 'friend'

Water and dust-resistant design ; All of the S7 specs are here ; Big, long-lasting battery

Only works with AT&T ; AT&T bloatware and restrictions ; Considerably expensive

There's no beating the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active if your phone routinely takes a beating. Its shatterproof screen and water- and dust-resistant design stand up to the elements, but get ready to pay and sign with AT&T.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active review: A great phone with a checkered water-resistant past

 

The Galaxy S7 Active has everything we love about the original model, but with a tougher build and a battery that lasts for days.

The Galaxy S7 Active has extra long battery life and is resistant to dust, water and drops. It has has the same speedy performance, expandable storage and excellent camera quality as the original S7.

The bulky, plastic design feels cheap compared with the glass-and-metal S7 and the phone is expensive.

AT&T customers looking for a durable and high-end smartphone can't go wrong with the Galaxy S7 Active.

Sink or swim: Samsung's Galaxy S7 Active drowned when we put it in the pool

 

The phone catering to active lifestyles failed two of our four submersion tests.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is the best rugged phone, except for one thing

 

This is the phone to buy if you're looking for a tough phone.

All the power of the S7 ; Massive battery ; Excellent cameras ; Handy Active shortcut key ; Tough body with shatterproof screen

Exclusive to AT&T ; Pricey

The Galaxy S7 Active is the only rugged phone worth buying. It's really too bad it's only available on AT&T.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active (AT&T)

 

With the Galaxy S7 Active, Samsung adds a shatter-resistant build and a bigger battery to the already spectacular Galaxy S7, making it the best rugged phone AT&T subscribers can get.

Rugged build. Fast performance. Long battery life. Excellent camera. Sharp, bright display. Customizable Active button.

Middling call quality.

Comparisons and Conclusions At $750, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active costs $55 more than the standard Galaxy S7. If you're the type of person who regularly needs to replace broken phones, that's a small price to pay compared with extended warranties or...

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active ( poseidon green camo)

 

While the Active doesn't have the S7's sleek metal and glass design, it does include a shatter-resistant screen, physical buttons and a military grade body. Perhaps the most appealing feature was its waterproofing. Samsung claimed the Active could...
