Samsung Galaxy S6 Active 64 GB now available on AT&T, costs $100 more than the 32 GB model
AT&T this week started selling a 64 GB variant of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active, a device that's not available via any other carrier. Just like the 32 GB model (which was released in June this year), the Galaxy S6 Active 64 GB can be purchased in three color versions: grey, camo white, and camo blue.

The S6 Active 64 GB costs $100 more than the 32 GB variant: $299.99 with a 2-year contract agreement, or $694.99 off contract. You can also get it on AT&T Next, starting from $23.17 per month.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active is a rugged, water-resistant version of the regular Galaxy S6 that's been around since early 2015. In addition to being tougher and not afraid of water, the S6 Active also has a larger battery (3500 mAh vs. 2550 mAh). That aside, the handset offers everything that the non-rugged S6 does, including a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 16 MP rear camera with OIS and 4K video recording, and a 5 MP front-facing camera. For a closer look at the handset, check out our Samsung Galaxy S6 Active review.

I bought it via / via in NY in August - best phone I EVER HAD - not ugly at all, indistructable, great REAL buttons and a battery life from another planet - pity the 64GB version wasn't out then yet - but indeed, why this is AT&T US only beats me - I have 4 colleagues already who bought this via eBay after seeing mine. Only challenge is software updates for which you need an AT&T active SIM card (I bought a pay as you go for this)

Because they know it wouldn't sell outside US..thanks to the competitive carrier pricing.

I would S5 if S6 had the 3500mAh battery and SD card slot。 But thank you for saving my money.

The S6 Active is like the Note 4, its perfect for the features that you get.

Yes, I hate it when it is only available to AT&T. Same as S5 Active.

The S4 active was only waterproof. It wasn't a Mil Spec shockproof phone.

IMO, the S6 Active was the best all around smartphone released this year. Great battery, great camera, great display, rugged design(Some people might call it ugly but it's practical), waterproofing, and the list goes on

They need to make this phone available for everyone. It would be a huge huge seller on Verizon. I would guy a 64gb version.

I had the 32GB model for about 3 months. Ugly phone. However the battery life was unbeatable. 7 Hours + on screen time. Sometimes over 8. The phone was fast and and stable. Issue was display to small for me.
