Samsung Galaxy S7 Active review: The rugged flagship phone for clumsy fingers

Florence Ion | June 23, 2016
Some phones are built like fragile little flowers. This one is built to withstand a rough-and-tumble lifestyle, though it's not entirely life-proof.

A phone that can withstand all of the dirt and drama in your life.

If I packed up and moved north tomorrow—my backup plan is to live off the land if things go awry—I’d switch to the Galaxy S7 Active. It has all of what makes the Galaxy S7 wonderful, including stellar camera performance and long-lasting battery life, but it’s also a hedge against smartphone disasters. And it’s not ugly; I could see myself sporting the gold one if I were a committed camper.

The only caveat is that the phone is, like last year’s release, an AT&T exclusive. I’d love to have this kind of device available on Verizon Wireless, especially since it costs about the same as buying a regular Galaxy S7 outright. So, for now I’ll have to settle for an Otterbox ($42.46 on Amazon).
