Four generations ago, Samsung’s Active lineup was more of a device for clumsy people. A Galaxy S looking phone that could resist a little more, so long as you read the instructions well. The last two generations have instead been about telling the world that rugged doesn’t have to be ugly, and this year model continues to push that mentality forward.

Smartphone usage patterns are definitely a contradiction these days. Designers go to incredible lengths to make a beautiful phone, and then most people will just snap it on a case to keep it that way. Look and feel went down the drain, and all at the expense of a case that mostly doesn’t do more than protect the phone. The Galaxy S7 Active follows a totally new mentality. It even falls under the category of a rugged phone, but after testing it for ten days, we actually don’t agree. This is actually more of the phone many of us have been looking for. A device that challenges the “thin and light” mentality with a sturdy and solid product that addresses more important needs, like longer battery life.
