Samsung Galaxy S4 Active review: a top-tier phone in a water-resistant package

With a water-resistant casing and a comfortable, attractive design, Samsung's Galaxy S4 Active is a strong option for outdoorsy -- and clumsy -- types. Just don't expect all the bells and whistles of the original Galaxy S 4.

Pros
  • Attractive, comfortable design
  • Effective water-resistant features
  • Fluid everyday performance
Cons
  • Disappointing battery life
  • Lower-quality display than GS4
