samsung Galaxy S6 active



Samsung launched Galaxy S6 Active in June 2015 as a more functional substitute for its elegant flagship phone of the year, the Galaxy S6. As the name suggests S6 Active is for the outdoor enthusiasts wanting to pack the most activity possible in a day. The phone is IP68 certified as water proof for an immersion of 30 minutes in 1.5 meter of water. This is for fresh water though, so do not go swimming or beach surfing with this phone in your pocket, else there could be trouble. The phone is also humidity, rain, solar radiation and shock resistant.

S6 Active is not meant for the vain people of the world, the phone has a less than average visual appeal with physical buttons and a bulky design. However, if you are looking for function over form then this multi-faceted phone with its super powerful 3,400mAh batter is definitely for you. The phone has a 5.1 super AMOLED display which boasts a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.

S6 Active runs on the latest Android v5.0.2 Lollipop and has the magnificent Exynos 7420 which is one of the best chipsets Samsung has on offer. A Quad-core 2.1 GHz CPU coupled with 3GB RAM provide superlative performance to the phone. . The phone has a better than average 16MP primary camera and a 5MP front one.

Activity Zone is a new software added to S6 active which groups all things that an outdoor enthusiast needs at one place. Compass coordinates, barometric readings, weather conditions are some of the things in this landing page. This phone is a great buy if you are looking for a phone that you wouldn’t have to baby as you use it.
