Rugged Samsung Galaxy S4 Active leaks on video: Snapdragon S4 Plus, 8 MP camera

0. phoneArena 21 May 2013, 03:10 posted on

The big unknown seems to be the screen type, since if Samsung went with the same wide-gamut Full HD Super AMOLED panel, the rugged handset is unlikely to come affordable, despite the lower-grade specs than the original S4...

Listen all guys..now dont say this is old hardware etc. Because samsung dont want this to overtake their flagship. (Metal body, water proof, dust proof) .
Only Note series can overtake their flagship.

Dual core? And that S4 plus?
Isn't the S4 Pro supposed to be better than the Plus?
Atleast quad S4 pro would have done better justice...
I think this is a bad mismatch.

I'm a little worried that at it's thinness it might not take damage very well. The S4 is lovely, but the damage resistance is extremely troublesome. The Active just looks like a coated S4 not something internally made out of more rugged material.

Well, that's a bummer for a tiny degrade of CPU and Camera, along with actual buttons on screen, but hey, still looks good for a rugged phone!

Certainly the ZR. ZR has a quad core CPU, Adreno 320 and 13MP camera. This S4 Active has the S4 name just to join the bandwagon of the original S4 for the hype to gain customers.

I have to agree and the fact you can shot full HD video under water is awesome! Even if it is only for 1m and for 30mins lol

22. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)


let me correct you 1.5 m for 30mins but thats only theory.

the reality is i've seen some one drop Xperia GO into the pool for more 1m deep maybe 2m+ and it still fine

don't forget ZR also have user replaceable battery because usualy samsung fans doesn't like non user replaceable battery

certainly? theres alot of things to consider

assuming its an amoled screen and 1080p vs ZR 720p TFT screen - S4 Active wins

Battery Life - unknown

Camera - samsung has been known to have better cameras than sony

specs - unknown and ZR S4 PRO 1.5 GHz PRo isnt something to brag about in 2013

storage - unknown but we do know the ZR has 8GB internal storage which is pretty bad for an high end phone

features - samsung normally wins this one

if you talking about viewing angle and resolution yes S4 Active will wins
but other than that i don't think so if ZR use the same screen like Xperia TX and combine that with sensor on lens (opticontras) it will be good

with 2300 mAh and user replaceable battery. 720 x 1280 pixels, 4.55 inches (~323 ppi pixel density) ZR will have no battery problem

about the camera i agree with but right now Sony have show they can fix the problem, i also heard Sony will bring big improvement for camera in the next android version

S4 PRO 1.5 GHz + 720p display it will be blazing fast. XP Z with 1080p can score 20000+ so maybe ZR will be better

8GB With sounds bad but SD Card will save the day

feature i agree with if S4 Active have the same feature like the S4

IP58 with a two-step camera button so ZR will have much better camera experience

I don't think it'll be 1080p considering the S4 plus CPU that it uses. S4 pro might not be something to brag about but it's still one of the top performer.
