Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Active, S5 Active, and S6 Active have all been top-notch smartphones in their own right. With the exception of Samsung’s flirtation with LCD panels in the first-gen. Galaxy S4 Active, the Korean giant has gone with AMOLED panels (a wise decision). Battery life, with the exception of the S4 Active (the LCD panel is partially at fault here), has been stellar on the S5 Active and S6 Active. The Galaxy S7 Active doesn’t disappoint here, either.
While our review is almost ready for primetime, I can say that you can text on Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Skype, Google Hangouts, and other messaging apps, while surfing the Web and shooting photos, and still get well over 10 hours SOT on a single charge. I’ve also gotten as much as 2.5 days of battery life with over 8 hours SOT – so the battery life is still king in the Galaxy S7 Active. That’s yet another thing, along with the gorgeous AMOLED panel, that remains unchanged (thankfully).
What has changed in the Galaxy S7 Active, though, is that Samsung has introduced a new, Sandy Gold color with this year’s model that hasn’t existed on any other Active phone to date – and it is sexy.
