    I love the galaxy S camera. My first galaxy s was the s5 and I loved that phone. It had a great camera and it's only gotten better. Still miss removable battery. I know many others don't lol.

    I used to too but nowadays the batteries have a much longer life expectancy.

    Back in the day the battery wouldn't hold a full charge after 7 or 8 months and you'd have to replace it.

    I'd still like the option. I have to charge throughout the day still.

    Picked one up Friday and I'm really liking it. The honeymoon phase isn't quite over but with an S7edge, 6p, 6s plus, HTC 10, and note 5 in my possession I'm leaning toward this one as my favorite phone. The S7e was my favorite prior to picking this one up but I'm leaning toward keeping the Active and selling the S7e. Even though not quite as sexy I like the rugged shell of the active and the shatter resistant display (which is brilliant by the way). This is the first device I've felt comfortable going without a case with since the Motorola Q or Nokia N95 way back in the day. Just slapped on a Zagg glass protector and good to go. The size and battery life also appeal to me. I'm getting over 7 hours SOT after just a few charge cycles.


    Definitely not the best looking phone put there but in my opinion it has the least compromises and offers the best user experience of any phone on the market right now.

    I honestly don't think it's a bad looking phone. It's not as nic looking as the s7 edge but it's not ugly to my eye. I really like the utility of the active. Huge battery and all the great spec of the s7 in a tough body. Going to look at this phone tomorrow.

    If you are planning on using a next plan to get one go to Best Buy. They are giving you a $100 gift card if you upgrade to the s7 active with a next plan. I'm probably going to do the same in a day or two.

    Wow that's cool. I'd do that but I would probably do outright. I don't have a upgrade.

    Best buy is also throwing in a wireless charging pad with the $100 gift card. Might push me over the edge with that deal.

    I'm now on board with the S7A, passing my S6A to my wife. Really liking the phone. Battery life is excellent. Got the Camo Green and a Bodyglove Satin Kickstand case.

    ...it shoots RAW, focuses faster than any other smartphone, and has OIS... I have access to an iPhone 6s Plus, which is more accurate overall out-of-box, but RAW totally trounces that. S7 series camera is also sharper than iPhone 6s Plus (which i seriously considered, having borrowed one, and an S7 as well, for a week, to make my decision). Also AF on S7 series is WAY faster, tracking works as well as a Nikon D300 pro DSLR, and RAW with Adobe Lightroom means you have every bit of data to play with... on your phone...

    All taken with the S7 Active in Pro mode. RAW original files available if you dont believe me. One niggling issue with Lightroom is no noise reduction function; 1st and 4th photo i could do WORLDS better with on my editing machine, but all shot and processed on the device. 4th photo is also heavily cropped in. Originals and edits are also FAR sharper than shown; Google photo reduces them and i dont feel like taking the time and energy to post 1:1 crops or link full res.

    Picked mine up yesterday. Got the grey version and had store install a Zagg glass protector. So far I am a little overwhelmed with touchwiz/Android. Stunned by the amount of bloatware, flipboard.... seriously??? Havent dunked it in the water yet but plan on it soon.
    Coming from windows phone I am not overly impressed with the OS but will wait and see. If anyone has a good article to point me to for setting things up the first time I would appreciate it.
    Regarding the phone itself, build quality seems top notch. Wireless charging works with all my old nokia qi chargers so thats great.
    Of note, the material at the corners is not rubber, no rubber on this device, it is actually a leather type of compound.
    Anyways, a lot more i need to look at, play with, figure out.

    tkuhe - totally agree about the flip board and bloat ware stuff. Having come from WP too it was shocking. And I hate that every app you download seems to want access to everything. I'll get use to it, but WP was just a totally opposite experience. I get a lot of pop up too telling me my OS is corrupt and I need to download an Android Cleaner... I just laugh them off, but they are annoying.

    I disagree on the corners of the phone. I am not a scientist, but they seem like a synthetic material. Which is not to say that's bad (in fact it may be good). It's just to say I don't think it's a natural material like leather or even rubber for that matter.
