The standard S6 is, in itself, one of the finest smartphones available. Remarkably high-spec, sexy looks and a feature list longer than a Star Wars marathon at the Roxy. The engineering team at Samsung must have gotten together and wondered how they could improve it. Unable to make many improvements on the technical side of things. They hit on the idea of targeting the biggest drawback of the modern smartphone – it’s durability. To that end they made it dustproof and waterproof. Moreover, subjected the screen to water pressure testing and designed it to survive a drop from 12 feet onto a tiled floor. Lo, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active was born.
Ruggedized versions of mobile phones have been around for quite a while. But the full screen nature of modern smartphones makes them particularly susceptible to webbing and cracking. If you’ve ever dropped one down the stairs, or even just found the screen cracked one day after it’s been in your back pocket, you’ll know what we mean. The S6 Active makes using a smartphone outside of a controlled laboratory environment safer and more secure than ever.
But, like we said, this isn’t just a rugged smartphone, it’s the rugged version of a Samsung flagship smartphone. Don’t believe us? Check these out…
Should we begin with the 32 GB of storage, 8-core processor, the 3GB of RAM or the 4K video recording? Perhaps the 16MP front camera which has geo-tagging, face-detection, HDR and panorama capabilities built in. Or the 5MP rear camera that can capture FULL HD 1080p video would be a better place to start listing everything it can do. Really, though, up first should probably be the stunning 5.1” Super AMOLED, 1440 x 2560 touchscreen which is just about the best we’ve ever experienced.
The fact that Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspot, Bluetooth 4.1m GPS, NFC and the infrared port get left until the second part of this section shows just how great the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active is. Oh, and there’s, wireless charging, a built in photo and video editor, a document editor, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a compass, a barometer and a heart rate monitor all packed into a device that is less than 6” tall, less than 3” wide and barely ⅓” thick.
Chuck in the IP68 Standard dustproof and waterproof down to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes compliance. And, do not forget, the military grade resistance to salt, dust, humidity, rain, vibration, solar radiation, transport and thermal shock, and the S6 has to weigh a ton, surely? No, actually. This marvel of engineering and technological toughness comes in at just 6oz. That’s less than half the weight of a can of soda. Or pop, if you’re in Iowa.
Reasons to be Cheerful
Parts 1, 2 and 3 (Google it if you’re not a fan of the 70s British punk scene)
- The Galaxy S6 Rugged looks every bit as cool as its standard brother. Cooler in many ways, in fact.
- It will survive almost anything without skipping a beat
- It’s as technically good as anything else that’s currently available, but stronger, sturdier and sexier.
The Galaxy S6 Active is a remarkable example of how to get a smartphone exactly right. Often, when a phone is ruggedized, some of the technology is sacrificed in order to beef up the internal protection, but Samsung managed to cram in everything the standard S6 has, without losing a single thing. The Samsung Active range has been around for a while, and other manufacturers would be wise to see how Samsung manage to do it as well as this.
