Why only AT&T? Come on, Verizon, you love rugged phones too. I might even consider the S4 Active.

I think this phone is better than the s4. The only downgrade is the 13 megapixels.

13 megapixels isn't really a downgrade for such a small sensor. 13mp is probably too much for a point and shoot sized sensor to be honest.

I was shocked to find that the 8mp version of the new EXMOR RS sensor in the Xperia SP performed worse though. I thought the SP was going to take better pictures than the Xperia Z and GS4 because the 8mp version would have less noise. Let's see what Samsung firmware/software can do with the same sensor. Samsung is generally pretty good with camera firmware/software so I predict the 8mp GS4 active camera will outperform the GS4, provided it uses the new EXMOR RS sensor line.

13mp is too high unless they make a larger sensor and 4mp is just a joke. 8mp is the sweet spot for mobile phone sensors imo.
