Review: Samsung Galaxy S8 Active

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is a solid piece of hardware that would be impressive if the S8 hadn't preceded it. The S8 is more attractive in every way, and feels better in the hand thanks to its slim profile and comfortable weight. The Active makes up for the size increase with its rugged exterior, which is able to handle loads more punishment than the S8.

Many of the S8's best features are intact in the Active, such as the signal/call quality, display, powerful software, excellent camera, and accessory-friendly design thanks to the memory card slot and headphone jack.

What really sets the phone apart is battery life. Few handsets in the market today can push through more than a day and a half on a single charge. This feature alone may make the Active a worthy purchase.

If you need a sturdy device that handles punishment, survives long hours in the field, takes excellent pictures, and performs well across the board, then by all means opt for the Galaxy S8 Active. More to the point, if you want a device that has the case already (and permanently) applied, then opt for the Active.
