Galaxy S4 Active hits UK shops starting at £495 contract-free


The water-loving Active version of Samsung's flagship phone is now up for grabs in the UK, sim-free. Unlocked Mobiles has the ruggedized GS4 listed at £495, while Carphone Warehouse has it stocked at £530, comparable sums to the Galaxy S 4 when it launched. As you may remember, the model brings waterproof sealing to stock Galaxy S 4 internals (5-inch 1,080 x 1,920 screen, quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage and LTE capability), while settling for a lesser 8-megapixel camera. Still, you'll be able to bring those megapixels to an underwater environment most Samsung models would shun. So, while you could save yourself a few pounds by going with the standard issue Galaxy, dropping a few extra quid a the source will mean when you get tossed in the pool at your next BBQ you'll only lose your dignity, not your phone.
