Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is a variant of the original Samsung Galaxy S8. The Galaxy S8 Active is the latest addition to the Galaxy S Active series. The Active series is for the people who use the phone very roughly as the phones in this series come with a lot of protection. The Galaxy S8 Active is salt, dust, humidity, rain, vibration, solar radiation, transport and thermal shock resistant.
S8 Active feels very premium in hand. Like the original Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, the phone does not have Infinity Display. It comes with a stunning 5.8 inches display with a Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The phone has a metal frame and bumper which makes it strong and rigid.Samsung removed the physical home button and embedded it in the display as a capacitive button which gives haptic feedback. This step is taken to make more room for the display. The phone also has a dedicated button for the personal assistant “Bixby”.

The only flaw in the design is the fingerprint scanner which is placed badly on the back with the camera sensor.
Samsung S8 Active has, without any doubt, the best camera available on any smartphone right now. Last year, when the Samsung Galaxy S7 released, it amazed everyone with its camera performance and no one could beat it for the whole year. Samsung Galaxy S8 Active uses the same camera lens featured in the Galaxy S7 but with much better post processing abilities.
It has a 12 MP, f/1.7 main camera with an 8 MP front facing the camera. Both cameras can record 2160p videos and video quality is so great that even some entry level DSLRs struggle in front of it.
It captures stunning images both in daylight and extreme low light conditions. If the camera is your preference in a smartphone, you cannot get a better camera on any smartphone right now.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is the performance king. It has the highest AnTuTu score right now, even higher than the iPhone 7. It comes with the latest, Snapdragon 835 chipset and 4 GB of RAM. You’ll not feel the slightest lag on multitasking. All applications, including the camera, launch quickly.
The battery has been upgraded to 4,000 mAh which will make the phone last even longer on a single charge. This is no doubt the fastest Android smartphone available right now. The gaming performance of Samsung Galaxy S8 is, of course, the best. It will give you the highest frame rate on all games, no matter how graphic demanding and heavy they are.
|Model||Samsung Galaxy S8 Active|
|TypeDesign Type called form factor refers to a mobile phone's size, shape, and style as well as the layout and position of major components of phone. There are three major form factors seen in mobile phones => bar phones, folding phones and sliding phones.||Bar|
|Protection||Corning Gorilla Glass 5|
|2G Network||GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900|
