Samsung Galaxy S8 Active unboxing and first look

Samsung’s Galaxy Active series, and increasingly ruggedizedwearables, have helped establish the company as a true champion of outdoors-people and athletes. Or perhaps just the more careless mobile consumer. Starting with the Galaxy S4 Active, Samsung began offering IP67 waterproofing –years before it was a flagship standard – as well as a rugged design, which has now expandedto military standard certifications in drop tests, extreme temperatures, andIP68 waterproofing. Today we take a look at the latest in the "Active" series, the Galaxy S8 Active. Retailing for $849.99 as an AT&T exclusive (for now) we take a first look at the long-anticipated, ruggedized follow-up to the phone of the year contender, the Galaxy S8.
