Galaxy S7 Active review: Samsung makes the Active attractive

The Galaxy S7 Active continues Samsung’s tradition of releasing a military standard-grade phone that draws much of its inspiration from the latest Galaxy S flagship, while adding a little something extra that some consumers want. Many have said that the Galaxy Note 7 is “an S7 edge with an S Pen,” but the Galaxy S7 Active can be called “the true Galaxy S7 Plus” without raised eyebrows: it has the same display, cameras, SoC, internal storage, microSD card slot, and pre-installed Android Marshmallow as the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, but brings the coveted Active key, new Sandy Gold color, shock-resistant build, and larger battery.

Since the Galaxy S7 Active is really a Galaxy S7 “plus” the extra, we won’t waste too much discussion on the similarities, though we will provide a photo gallery for your viewing. For those who want to see more discussion on the display, cameras, and Marshmallow update, we encourage you to view our Galaxy S7 review.
