Description

With the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active we get a 5" 1080x1920 pixels Full HD LCD display in a 9mm thin phone, a quad-core 1.9 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, an 8 MP camera on the back, LTE/HSPA+ radio, infrared beamer, 16 GB of internal memory plus a microSD slot, a decent 2600 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2 to run it all, with all the goodies of the latest TouchWiz Nature UX. The outdoorsy features don't stop with the IP67 certification, making the phone dust- and water-proof up to three feet deep for up to 30 minutes. Samsung has thrown in the "Glove Touch" mode, which lets you operate the display with mittens on, and the "Aqua Mode" in the camera app interface, which helps make better underwater pictures and video. Long-press the volume key up, and the powerful LED light becomes a torch, and that same volume rocker down can be used as a camera shutter key directly from locked mode.
