    AC recently posted an article reviewing the Galaxy S7 Active. It made me want it. Unfortunately the Galaxy S7 is too small for my hands. I much rather have a durable device that can take a rough beating unlike the glass devices that are being made today.

    Anyway, my question is... Would you buy a Galaxy Note Active?

    I like the idea of the ruggedness, but at that size, the necessary added bulk would make that device really uncomfortable to use IMHO (the image of people holding a tablet to their ears comes to mind). Also, I'm pretty sure the process of releasing the S-Pen on a rugged phone would add 'steps' to it, reducing the quick note-taking capability of the device that was so well received on the 5.

    So maybe an S7 Edge Active could be a good compromise? Still wouldn't like the size, probably...

    Screen just isn't big enough. My wife has the S7. I couldn't ever see myself using it. The S-pen is a deal breaker as well. I need it.

    I would love one but VZW won't get it. I want no part of delicate curved screens nor glass backs. I don't care if battery is removable but I would love a 4000 mAh battery. I don't mind bulk, in fact a prefer a thicker phone. It is easier to hold. I don't get the obsession with thin phones requiring small batteries.

    I think it would be too big for a Note phone, the active thanks to the case adds a bit of bulk.

    But man I love the physical buttons of this phone a lot.

    No...it's already way to big for me, I'm more of a 5" fan, however it's a productivity tool and will be utilized as such if I pull the trigger when it comes out.

    I wouldn't. The phone is already big enough and to add that bulk would bother me.

    Currently Note 5 with ultra thin Spigen 'case'. In a leather belt holster at times.

    Don't want to go any larger than this.
