Samsung's Galaxy S8 Active ditches the Infinity Display for ruggedness

Word has it Verizon and Sprint may also carry this handset in the future, too. Meanwhile, some reports claim that LG is probably in talks with Qualcomm to make the LG G7 the first phone to be powered by Snapdragon 836 SoC.

The S8 Active looks like it has all the right stuff.

If you're a little confused about where the new phone fits in Samsung's line-up, it's the same screen size as the Galaxy S8, though a little bulkier overall. Further, the display comes with a bumper on all sides of the phone which not only makes the handset resistant but strong as well. It features a 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED Display that is "shatter resistant for drops from 5 feet or less on a flat surface", Samsung said. This is just the way things go when tech companies constantly push and innovate - R&D costs money and that spend is pushed onto you, the customer. It comes as no surprise then that the Galaxy S8 Active is being tipped as Samsung' toughest Galaxy phone yet. Also, it ships with a bigger battery. On the rear is a 12MP dual pixel camera on the rear with f/1.7 aperture, OIS, and dual tone LED flash.

No doubt this impressive performance is due to the lower spec, with a lower resolution screen and lower-power processor demanding less from the battery, but potentially software and hardware optimisations from Samsung have also helped matters here. It will also provide you links to their LinkedIn profile which highlights other info such as shared connections. Available in "meteor gray" or "titanium gold", it will cost you US$28.34 a month for 30 months with AT&T Next, or $849.99 at full retail price. It's the same capacity as last year's S7 Active and significantly larger than the S8 and S8+, which have conservative 3,000 mAh and 3,500 mAh batteries, respectively. The trade-off, however, is that the Moto G does get stock Android and timely updates, while Samsung's Galaxy J5 has TouchWiz on-top and requires a bit of extra fettling between software versions.
