We are used to seeing a Samsung “Active” version of the current flagship Galaxy S product. The active Samsung Galaxy S7 is the latest in the series and was released exclusively for AT & T because it is also common. If the history serves as a reference, it is likely that the model does not see availability outside the stable of that particular US supplier. The active S7 has a much larger 4000 mAh battery inside. (In contrast, the Samsung Galaxy S7 has a 3000 mAh battery) Compared to the S7 variant, there is also the physical key on the side of the phone, which brings you directly to the application “Activity Zone” which excludes the active model.

Rest assured that we ask how long the active series will remain exclusively for AT & T. Of course, there are many fans around the world who would like to have a device as an unlocked and unattended device of pre-installed AT & T apps. We have no idea when that will happen, but we’ll probably keep our fingers crossed.



The biggest difference between the two phones is in the design; The original Galaxy S7 has a full glass and metal design, but the Galaxy S7 Active turns it into a more rubbery body. Like the previous Active devices, the rubber version translates into a rather thick phone, which frankly is a bit bulky, but this trade-off is not new to the Galaxy S7 Active.

Most people who drop their cell phone find that the helmet can break (often irreparably) if it lands in a corner or leading edge and to avoid this, Samsung has reinforced the corners to ensure that Active does not suffer the same fate. like other less durable phones. Of course, the sleek curves and corners of the original Galaxy S7 are lost, but the tradeoff deserves a new look, considering that this phone probably survived a big crash.

The rugged exterior of the Galaxy S7 Active complies with military standard MIL-STD-810G for protection against extreme conditions. As a result, the phone is rated as drop-proof to less than 5 feet and can survive in harsh conditions such as salt, dust, moisture, rain, vibration, sun exposure, transportation and shock. Warmth. Like all rugged smartphones, the Galaxy S7 Active has a limit and you can break it if you try hard enough, but you’ll survive many more shots than most, if not all, other current flagships.


The S7 Active works very well here, thanks to the same 12MP camera that uses a 1 / 2.6-inch sensor, a f / -7: 1 aperture and a larger 1.4-m pixel.

They are an adventurous life that is obviously so epic that it needs a sturdy phone, there will be photos during the day with a saturated blue sky, dark blue oceans, green grass and golden sand.

It’s almost as good when the sun goes down. Check all boxes for faster phase detection, autofocus, optical image stabilization, and a bright LED flash on the back.

Even without a flash, it works well in low light, just like the S7. This phone can handle outdoor tours and memories of indoor bars.

On the front, it is a 5MP camera and contains the same large f / 1.7 aperture for selfies. We like the fact that Samsung cameras capture larger angles than anything the iPhone camera can do. We also like the 4K video, which is more stable when running and shooting at the same time.

Best of all, we did not notice the differences between the S7 Active and the other Samsung Smartphone 2016. Just as brilliant and probably will not be until 2017.

Battery life

Undoubtedly, there is a difference when it comes to the battery life of the Samsung Galaxy S7. This not only lasts the whole day, but we have found that we can do it in normal use almost two days.
All this thanks to the new capacity of the 4000 mAh battery, which occupies the most space within its 9.9 mm limits. You do not need a philosophy when carrying the S7 Active.

In heavy use, we were always able to get a long battery all day long. Other cell phones, such as the LG G5, consumed the same amount of energy in our intensive testing as we used GPS-compatible card applications, and we were always on the lookout for information. These phones had a used battery in 12 hours.

The screen still consumes some battery despite its power-saving architecture, but is not as problematic as the Samsung Galaxy S7.

The Active also contains a fast charge. While the larger battery pack charges longer, the proper quick charge adapter and a compatible micro USB cable are not very long.



The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is not for everyone, but if you’re looking for a rugged phone that’s stronger than your flagship model and you’re familiar with AT & T, it’s a great option. The Active has all the power of a flagship, but not his fragility.

The biggest disadvantages are the price and the limited availability. AT & T is the exclusive operator of the Galaxy S7 Active. So if you do not work with this operator, you’re out of luck. Active 32GB also costs $ 795, or about $ 100 more than the average S7 costs, and nearly $ 50 more than a 64GB iPhone 6S will run (and not recommend a 16GB iPhone). The additional $ 50 is the price you pay for additional waterproofing and heavy duty constructions.

In general, the Galaxy S7 Active is the best rugged phone you can buy. It is more powerful than the Droid Turbo 2 and Cat S60. The addition of the fingerprint sensor and the new processor make a big difference, and we can highly recommend the active S7 for the kind of outdoor activity or for someone who is tired of broken screens and phones.
