Samsung Galaxy S4 Active
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active offers most of the features of the original S4, but with added protection & water resistance. Explore rugged mountains, jog in the rain, even take photos underwater, and your Active will survive – perfect if you want the highest tech, but need a sturdier phone too.
The essential tech specs.
The Active is able to last for up to 312 hours on standby or give you 17 hours of talk time thanks to its 2,600mAh battery. Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 is preinstalled, giving loads of features and access to 1 million apps, while the processor is a mighty 1.9GHz quad core Snapdragon 600 chipset. The 5" screen is full 1080p HD resolution, so the sharpness is very high, 441 pixels per inch (PPI). On the back is an 8MP camera, and there's 16GB of storage for photos. Need more? Use microSD cards up to 64GB in size (sold separately).
IP67 water resistance.
The S4 Active meets IP67 certification, which means it's dust-tight, but also protected against water. In fact, to meet IP67, devices need to keep out 100% of water for 30 minutes while being submerged in 1 metre of water. Equipped with a water resistant earphone jack, the Galaxy S4 Active allows you to keep listening to music in even the wettest conditions. Whether capturing every moment of a wild rafting trip or taking a great underwater photo in the pool, the unique construction lets you capture amazing pictures which would have been impossible using a normal smartphone.
Still hugely powerful.
Featuring a 1.9GHz quad core processor and a huge 2,600mAh battery, your Samsung Galaxy S4 Active can handle the most intensive tasks with ease. The striking colour and resolution on the 5.0" Full HD touchscreen gives you a state of the art display for watching videos and playing games, and it also supports Air View and Air Gesture. These are ways of controlling the screen without having to touch it at all.
An 8MP camera that takes pictures underwater.
With an 8MP rear camera, plus a 2MP camera on the front, it's easy to take pictures wherever you are. Unique to the S4 Galaxy Active camera system is 'Aqua Mode', used to increase the quality and clarity for enhanced underwater images and videos. The volume key on the side of phone can also be used as a camera key, letting you open the camera app quickly to capture the moment. Even better, the camera transforms into a powerful LED flash light to light your way in low light, just a long press of the volume key and it'll fire up.
Loads of added bonuses.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active has loads of other features too. The screen uses Glove Touch technology so you can control the phone whilst wearing gloves. The built-in WatchOn app combines with the infrared port to let you control your TV, and even see what's on now and next. Because it's a phone designed for being active, there's S-Health too, an app that tracks your daily activity to help you stay fitter and healthier.
