In case you missed it, the Galaxy S8 Active became official yesterday. As is tradition with the 'Active' version of Samsung flagships, this one will be an AT&T exclusive initially, but is poised to arrive on other carriers and be available unlocked at some point in the future.
So far, so good, but is it the right phone for you, and more importantly, how does it fare against the Galaxy S8 and all the contemporary Android flagships out there? Taking tons of pages from Galaxy S8' s book, the S8 Active is a more rugged and durable alternative to Samsung's flagship that also offers slightly beefier specs while also boasting a slightly larger body to accomodate all the novel goodness inside.
So, let's first see how this one fares against the competing parties in a size comparison and we'll continue with a specs comparison in a minute.
