We’ve handled it at its official London debut, even dropping it into a tank of water. We’ve unboxed our very own demo unit, graciously provided to us by the exclusive launch partner, AT&T. And we’ve given that demo unit the Quick Review treatment, stretching the limits of the word “quick” with 2500+ words and a full video review. The Galaxy S 4 Active might not have gotten the full-court press the original got, but we did our best to make it a dense seven days of coverage.
As the week winds down and some of you folks get ready to take to the smartphone store with your Friday paycheck dollars, there’s only one thing left to do: put the Galaxy S 4 Active up against its only-months-old forebear. It’s time to see if the ruggedization Samsung and AT&T are busily boasting about were worth the display and camera downgrade. Plus, we’re itching to drop the Active in more bowls of water. For science.
What’re you still hanging around here for? Dive in to the video below and experience the majesty that is Galaxy S 4 Active vs Galaxy S 4. Then, and only then, will you be properly informed and equipped to drop hundreds of dollars on your next pocket communicator. Godspeed, mobile citizens.
