    If you plan to put a case on the Note 8 you should put a case on and then compare. The regular S series' biggest advantage over the Active series is their looks, but after owning a S6 Active and then a regular S7 I realized that with a case the regular S series is uglier, thicker, and heavier than the Active series.
    Not a problem for me... I always run Big, Ugly cases on all my phones! Protection first - looks last, in my mind! Here's my old Note 7 in it's iBlason case... kinda' looked like my Super Duty!

    Cheers to big, ugly, tank-like cases that keep our phones safe and running trouble free after all of the rough and tumble!

    I use over-sized cases, massive extended battery cases (11800mAh!), and sometimes even put a cased phone into another case!

    The backpack can take considerable abuse scrambling down a steep slope. The phone always survives!

    Whoa, the reference to the S8 Active on the AT&T website has now been removed! All of the Android news websites reported on the fact that this was an official acknowledgement from AT&T that the S8 Active release was imminent.

    Now that AT&T has removed the reference from the website, who knows when the S8 Active will be released. A non-existent phone that I was able to order a case for....

    Here is the AT&T link where the reference to the S8 Active has been removed. Scroll down the page and expand the "What Samsung smartphones are eligible" section:

    I was on "My AT&T" this afternoon and selected "Upgrade My Eligible Phone" then went to "Available Phones" then selected "Chat"! I told the "Chat Rep" that I had seen pictures and specs for the Galaxy S8 Active - had they heard any news on when it would be available. He asked me to hang on for a minute then came back and said they were expecting the S8 Actives to arrive from Samsung in mid-September, just after the Note 8 ships! Can I trust him? Sounded like a good answer...

    Samsung probably doesn't want it to disrupt the introduction of their "Flagship" Note 8 so they're stalling it 'til after the Note ships! :-(

    Samsung has bungled this completely.

    I cannot understand why this phone was not out in June, or why they ever release it later than the S series anyway. I could not wait and jumped in a great deal for my s8, but now I am juggling various cases for various events.

    If I had the s8 Active instead, I would have tempered glass, a dBrand and just rock that 24/7
    Really going to give another brand a consideration for my next device.
