We said it before and will say it again—this is what the original GS4 should have been out the gate. The Active flaunts a sporty, water-resistant chassis designed to protect all high-powered internals, sustaining damage when submerged underneath the surface at three-feet deep. Samsung’s will to squeeze in the same paramount hardware and hi-tech features scream in loud volume. And even though the GS4’s 13MP camera is absent, the 8MP alternative does a good job with photos and allows for underwater shooting via Aqua Mode feature.
