Samsung Galaxy S7 active unboxing: First encounter with the AT&T exclusive

The Samsung Galaxy S7 active, for yet another year, is going to be exclusive to AT&T. Announced less than a week ago, we've already received the ruggedized, beefed up version of the Galaxy S7, and we thought we'd let you in on our first encounter with it.

So tune in for the Galaxy S7 active unboxing below and sit tight as we work around the clock on the in-depth review. If previous generations of the Galaxy S Active line are anything to go by, what you're looking at is likely to end up as yet another extremely competitive AT&T exclusive.

This badly needs an international release.

At first I thought this phone was ugly, but after seeing the Moto Z, this phone now looks beautiful.

Forgive me for being ignorant; but does it have a bigger battery than a 'regular' 'non-active' or perhaps maybe 'lazy' (as opposed to 'Active') Galaxy S7...? And what's the IPX Rating? Thanks & of course; G'Day!

IP68 vs regular S7 IP67

I believe the regular S7 is also IP68. This adds shock protection.

WRONG! All the S7's are IP68 rated against dust and water. Which is why I said, I would rather get the S7 or S7 Edge and get a OtterBox or Rock case which offers identical protection this phone has.

Why? What difference does it make, other than you'll end up with less battery?

Samsung should stop making so many variant of the same phone, I think there is already 4-6 variant of the s7 already, the normal version, limited editions, active edition, dual sim version and so on, LOL
