    There are now several members of the Galaxy S4 family. In the goldilocks tradition, the Galaxy S4 is the daddy bear, the Galaxy S4 Zoom the mummy bear and the S4 Mini the baby bear. And the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active was out having a swim while the children`s story was being written. It`s a water-resistant Android phone with a large full HD screen and quad-core processor. If you care about the weatherproofing feature, it`s a good alternative to the...

    Pros: High-resolution screen, IP67 water/dust resistance, Powerful processor,

    Cons: Some minor camera issues, Water resistant, but not rugged,

    Quite a few smartphones these days can claim to be waterproof, but you have to hand it to Samsung`s Galaxy S4 Active for turning that characteristic into a camera feature. The 8-megapixel shooter`s underwater aqua mode absolutely works — so long as the seal holds — but it`s a mistake to think of the S4 Active, which is also dust proof, as a rugged or durable phone. Internals are still vulnerable behind a flimsy back panel, and "toug...

    What do you do when you create an incredibly lucrative brand? Milk it for everything it`s worth, and it`s that mentality that has led to the creation of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active. The S4 Active arrived alongside the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom and Galaxy S4 Mini a short while after the flagship Samsung Galaxy S4 as the Korean firm looks to get the maximum from its internationally recognised brand. As you may be able to guess from the name the Galax...

    Pros: Water resistant, Excellent screen, Fast, fluid OS,

    Cons: Average battery, Bulkier than S4, Lower res camera,

    The Galaxy S4 Active is one of Samsung's family of Galaxy S4 smartphones. This Android phone is built to last: a toughened smartphone able to handle dust, water, and all the vicissitudes an active life can throw at a handset. Here's our Galaxy S4 Active review....

    Verdict: We really like the Galaxy S4 Active. It's got the kind of features that we wish the flagship smartphone has. There is a downgrade with some specifications but they don't seem like a big sacrifice. Performance is excellent and the neither display nor ...

    Samsung`s been doing its best to capitalise on the good word surrounding the Galaxy S4 by flooding the market with a further four S4 devices. We`ve had the Zoom, the Mini and the Mega but now it`s the turn of the Active, designed for outdoors rough `n` tumble and, er, underwater photos. It`s on sale now for around £450. Full review...
