The Samsung Galaxy S4, which has been launched just a few months ago, is expecting a number of variants, which include the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active and the S4 Mini. As of now, the Samsung Galaxy S 3 is the only one with the Mini version, but according to the South Korean company, the S4 will soon be available in both the Active and the Mini variants.
You may be wondering what these variants are all about and what the difference between them and the standard Samsung Galaxy S4 is. In this preview, we will be discussing these aspects in order to help you determine whether or not the Galaxy S4 Active will be a worthy investment or if you should stick to a more established telecommunications platform, such as the RingCentral business phone.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Active Build and Design Quality
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active will be shipped with the Android 4.2.2 operating system. This latest addition to the Galaxy product line weighs 151g, or 5.33 oz. The handset’s overall dimensions are 139.7 mm by 71.3 mm by 9.1 mm. Yes, this may seem a bit overwhelming to you, but given that the smartphone comes with a significant display screen size, you should already expect the phone to be quite heavier compared to models that feature smaller display screens. You may also want to know that the Galaxy S4 Active comes with both water proof and dust proof qualities.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Active Display Screen
As mentioned above, the display screen size of the Galaxy S4 Active is quite significant at 5 inches. Yes, there are some other phones that feature the same display screen size, but only a few perform well when it comes to talk about display screen quality. The S4 Active performs great in this area, as it has a high resolution display of 1,080 by 1,920 pixels. This resolution is equivalent to 443 ppi. In addition to these qualities, the display screen of the Galaxy S4 Active also comes with the following features: light sensor and proximity sensor, as well as a scratch-resistant glass.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Active Camera
Another area that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active excels in is in camera performance. The Galaxy S4 Active comes with two different cameras, one at the back and one at the front, much similar to most of the other mid- to high-end models available today. What is great about the S4 Active is that the rear snapper has a resolution of 8 megapixels, while the front has a 2 megapixel resolution that offers enough for self-shots and video chats.
Aside from being an 8-megapixel snapper, the rear camera also comes with a LED flash system. Camera features are plenty, some of which include Auto Focus, Smile Detection, Exposure Compensation, Digital Zoom, Burst Mode, GEO tagging, Scenes, and Panorama among many others.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Active Main Feature – Waterproofing Design Technology
The main feature of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is its waterproofing design technology. Instead of being just a fail-safe and prevention against water damages, Samsung has finally made this water-proofing quality a feature in the Galaxy S4 Active. This waterproofing design allows for the submersion of the smartphone to a meter below the water surface. The phone can be submerged up to 30 minutes without it becoming damaged. This same technology also provides the user with the chance to capture photos taken under the surface of the water (up to a meter below) through the handset’s brand new aqua mode.
While the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active has not been made available to consumers yet, it is definitely something that is worth the attention. This latest addition to the Galaxy family line offers a number of great features that you will find useful and fun, so it may just prove to be valuable both from a business and personal perspective.
