Samsung Galaxy S8 Active review

18 November 2017
By now, we’ve come to expect an “Active” version of the latest Samsung SX device. Also by now, we’ve mostly come to terms with the fact that it still isn’t commercially available in other markets outside the US. That aside, the Galaxy S8 Active is a ruggedized version of the Samsung Galaxy S8. It also does not water down specs or skimp on features over the standard model.

Why is the sound in the headphones worse than in the usual S8?

Anonymous, 22 Nov 2017S8 + cover, cheaper and much betterNope, pass. I know 3 people who have had S7s and a S8 in the last year ALL three were busted within the first 4 months and all were in cases, including an Otterbox Commuter.

Two of them went to Moto Z Force units, and one went to a iPhone 7. All swore they would never buy anothe Samsung phone as long as glass was used on the phone bodies.

AnonD-573665, 19 Nov 2017So much wasted money on dead phones from Nokia, Samsung, LG... more It depends on which nation you're from. Phone spying is all the rage these days from many governments point of view: they are spying.

Anonymous, 22 Nov 2017S8 + cover, cheaper and much better S8 plus with 6gb ram and a cover is a good idea to get. Why doesn't the Active model have a 6gb ram variation yet? Next year maybe.

If Verizon would get this model, it MIGHT convince me to go back to Samsung.

Won't touch those glass covered jokes they have right now.

This fixes my hate with today's smartphones, glass backs and small batteries!
