Samsung Galaxy S7 Active vs Galaxy S7 edge vs Galaxy S7: battle royale

14
The arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active could have easily skipped your attention. It's okay, we will fill you in! Announced yesterday as an AT&T-exclusive, the S7 Active is the latest rugged phone to join the ranks. 

With a durable body and shatter-proof Gorilla Glass 4 screen, the new device can certainly take a beating before succumbing its soul to the Happy hunting grounds. It's also IP68-certified, meaning it can survive for up to 30 minutes in a couple of feet of water and live to tell the tale. Oh, and it also has a new, customizable hardware button on the right side - useful for launching a certain app while you're in a hurry or an emergency. 

It's also improving the specs sheet. Apart from boasting a Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM, and 12MP f/1.7 camera, the S7 Active also has a 4,000mAh in its belly - that sounds really promising and suggests that it will certainly lap the regular S7 and S7 edge in any battery life test.

But how do these three stack up? Here's how:
