It's the teal thing!; third color option for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active leaks on film
If you're nervous about buying a flagship model because of your butterfingers, this would certainly be the model for you to consider. The phone is expected to be unveiled during Samsung's Premiere event in the U.K. on June 20th. Perhaps then we will find out what we can expect from the water resistant feature. While some models, like the Sony Xperia Z, are water resistant to a depth of 1 meter, other models like the Motorola DROID 4 are resistant to a splash of water.
You might recall the video we showed you of P2i's MWC display which was truly amazing. The water-repellant nano-coating was applied to an ordinary tissue and dipped in water. You need to see the results! At the same time, a treated Samsung Galaxy S III was lying submerged in water with the timer indicating that it had been swimming with the fishies for some time. We don't know if P2i is involved with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, but we should know a lot more after Samsung's event.

No way a sarcasm.
The new troll of PA.
Maybe not new, just the name...with the same old interior.

Might be someone paid by Samsung, after what they did in Taiwan to HTC. But, i doubt resorting to such tactics will benefit Samsung much.

Hmmm. Kind of looks Photo-chopped. Especially at the top of the handset.
Maybe Sammy is debuting a service on their accessory store where you can order your back panel with a range of colors. 3D printer prints the cover out on demand and FedEx brings it to your doorstep 48 to 60 hours later.

lol. 3D printer takes hours. It's pretty much useless if you want to make so many quantities.
And that was lighting at the top.

I like colours and i like choices but i don't understand the hype in the leakage of colour variants.
Sometimes i think why OEMs make the same version with new colours after a year when they could've given the choice from the very start.

I didn't think I'd like it; I generally like my phones black (except for the white Lumias, damn they're sweet!) but I can't help myself. I actually like the teal GS4 Active.

I wonder who let the 3 year old with the red crayon on daddy's computer...
13. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5470; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
this is the second article i've seen as of late from you guys praising the Droid 4. that's awesome.
i actually bring my MAXX HD into the shower with me because of it's water resistance and jam out to some tunes and it comes out perfectly fine. maybe that's tmi but it attests to the effectiveness of that water repellent nano coating.
oh and that Active looks pretty nice too i guess. xD
14. roscuthiii (Posts: 1658; Member since: 18 Jul 2010)
I recently did one of the things I said I'd never do (because I was too smart for it or something like that :-/ ) and left my Razr Maxx (wish it were the HD) in the cargo pockey of my shorts when I went to a water park for the afternoon, thinking I'd put it in my backpack.
Lil' trooper came out unscathed, if not a bit cleaner than when it went in.
15. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5470; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
yeah man! water ain't a thing to these Razrs! ;D

You guys got really lucky. Mine fell into a puddle of water and was dead a week later. I dried it off and put it in rice 30 seconds after it fell in, but still... DEAD! And of course VZW's stance is "Well, we said water resistant, not water proof. The warranty is voided." Oh well, T-Mobile rocks.
29. roscuthiii (Posts: 1658; Member since: 18 Jul 2010)
Alas, I've never been all that lucky. Perhaps it was just that was unlucky. ;-)
My girfriend once put her Droid Eris through the wash, tried the rice thing and 'voila'... started right back up. Of course it didn't help that 2 weeks later she went and ran the thing over. :-/
I do A lot of travelling and I like the reliability of VZW's network, however where I've just moved to is a cell dead spot. Basically no carriers get service. I guess If I'm going to pay for dead air, I may as well pay the lesser amount, because yeah... some of Big Red's policies suck.
33. Whateverman (Posts: 3150; Member since: 17 May 2009)
Could be bad luck dude. And VZW's attitude about the whole thing was the kicker. I loved that phone and their cover so I was pissed about leaving! But your right, 9 times out of 10 in dead areas, VZW customers are usually the only ones with a signal.
30. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5470; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
that's funny because i've had every Razr Verizon has had to offer and ALL of them proved to be as water resistant as advertised so you're either lying or it's like roscuthiii said and you were unlucky instead of us being luckier.
32. Whateverman (Posts: 3150; Member since: 17 May 2009)
I don't know what your problem is with me, but I don't need to lie to you or anyone else on the PA. Saying maybe I'm unlucky... Fine. Saying maybe I got a defective unit... Even better. But I need not lie to you dude. Just because you see my name doesn't mean you should go on the attack. Just relax, and don't insult me again. If that's to much to ask, just avoid me and I'll do the same. Your choice.
34. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5470; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
okay guy, thanks for the info. just saying it was one of the possibilities. why wouldn't i think it is? am i supposed to have respect for you or something? you act like i've accused you without even giving you the value of the doubt but lying was one of two possibilities i presented. you clearly went out of your way and out of the blue to discredit the shared experience of two people by claiming it was sheer luck and you continued on to share your one bad experience you had on the topic and used it to desperately flame on Verizon as you often do and most of the time with some pretty garbage arguments so why shouldn't i even consider lying to be a possibility from you? you want to talk about insulting? for you to claim that my every day experience was just me getting "really lucky" is insulting even more so when there's someone else right there to back that experience up. it's not even a big deal to me but it should show you how ridiculous it is for you to call me merely offering the possibility of a lie a straight up, personal attack in response to that. i don't like most of what you have to say Whateverman so yeah, actively try to avoid me.
35. Whateverman (Posts: 3150; Member since: 17 May 2009)
Dude, maybe you should get your estrogen levels checked or something. Who cares what I have to say about Verizon? Why does it bother you so much? My comment wasa reply to roscuthiii, so you could have very easily kept your trap shut if you didn't like what I had to say, but you didn't. You clicked reply, you insulted, and now your getting all sensitive because I'm calling you out. If you can't me calling you on your BS, don't let it fly. Saying someone must being lying even as a choice of two options is an insult. And let's be clear, your respect means two squirts to me, so no... I don't care if you repect me or not. You don't mean anything to me so why should I? Just keep your distance and we never have to talk again. Peace. Oh yeah, VZW sucks!
36. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5470; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
you must think i'm really dumb huh?
you were clearly engaging both roscuthiii and myself as clearly indicated by your first sentence.
calling me out huh? is that what you were doing?
if i understand the term in this context correctly then you're representing two different things. your words are that of somebody who is against this kind of personal confrontation yet you invite it by "calling me out" as you say. you say that i could have very easily kept my trap shut if i didn't like what you had to say. well then what about you Whateverman? why don't you just shut your trap if it's so easy? keeping your trap shut to somehing you didn't like would've avoided this whole thing. that's right, you were the first one to come in and get all sensitive here. apparently what i think about you seems to matter something to you because you're obviously very upset that i even presented the possibility that you lied and if that came off as insulting to you so what? i thought my respect only meant two squirts to you?
how about this, you keep your distance from me and we can avoid a lot of these little talks we have. just don't even reply to this because as soon as you do you'll only further confirm that you're a hypocrite that invites these kinds of confrontations. you'd be surprised how easy it is to not fight when you don't reply. i don't care one way or the other but there's some stuff you've said that you've got to back up there Mr. Insulted By The Very Idea Of Being Called A Liar.
37. Whateverman (Posts: 3150; Member since: 17 May 2009)
I said you were lucky... lucky... How inflammatory is that? Like I said, I don't know what our is you have against me but whatever man, it's cool. Peace.
38. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5470; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
aha, i'm not surprised you weren't able to control your need for confrontation and to try to have the last word. you can regress to what i said about what you originally reply all you want to but it doesn't change that even after i invited you to make a mistake you chose to make it anyway and therefore proving that you sir are a hypocrite meaning that for me to suggest even the possibility of you lying wasn't out of the equation in the least so yeah, it's cool man, peace.
16. giani (Posts: 176; Member since: 13 Nov 2012)
Another day...another galaxy...it's funny how the same trolls moaning at htc's and Sony's branding are now quiet and actually praising all this confusing sh!t. Ohhh well....fanboys
27. Taters (Posts: 2088; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Haha the Samsung haters are failing at logic again I see....
31. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5470; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
that's a weird statement coming from you Taters considering you've yet to prove you know a thing about logic. :P
18. Luisit0 (Posts: 73; Member since: 18 Feb 2013)
I actually like how the Active looks much better than the original S4....
19. pyradark (Posts: 687; Member since: 10 Jun 2012)
well so far this is the best premium design for sammy. but still lack of creativity to be a standout.
23. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
from what I can see samsung, or rather PA turning slowly into samsung arena. Even tiny, irrelevant news becomes incredibly important and worth mentioning. Don't you have better topics?
Write some articles, like mr. heller, for God's sake!

Anyone here what the price point is on contract or any predictions?
