Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active

90% Galaxy S7 Active Review: #1 in almost every category
Source: Android Guys English EN→zh-CN
Like I said in the introduction, whether you’re looking for a phone with the best display, best camera, best durability, or best battery life, The S7 Active covers all those areas in one rugged package. Performance isn’t the best out of all the offerings, but with the Snapdragon 820 chip it’s still extremely close to every other high-end Android phone.

90% Durable Greatness
Source: Tom's Guide English EN→zh-CN
The Galaxy S7 Active is incredibly resilient, with a virtually unbreakable design (especially with Samsung fixing some early manufacturing woes) and an 11-hour battery that won't drain out on your next adventure. It'd be easy to recommend the Active based on its shatterproof, waterproof design alone, but what really makes the phone special is the fact that it's still a Galaxy S7 — which means a great display and a fantastic camera.

Cat S60 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 Active head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English EN→zh-CN
If you love everything about the Samsung Galaxy S7 and don't mind forgoing its good looks in the name of durability, the Active could be the handset for you. The Cat S60 is impressive for different reasons. It may not match the Galaxy's specs, but it is by far the hardiest of the two and won't make your stomach flip if it drops into the drink. You might not necessarily find a use for thermal imaging, but you have to admire the innovation.

A Hard Hitting Flagship Phone [Review]
Source: G Style Magazine English EN→zh-CN
As I say every year the S Active smartphones from Samsung are some of my favorites and the S7 Active I actually like more than the S7. The build quality is great with its rugged case design, it takes awesome pictures and operates smooth. It has all of the strengths of the S7 with just about none of its weakness and adding a 4,000k battery makes it even sweeter. Only downside really is its exclusivity with AT&T. You have to be either a customer or thinking about switching over as well as paying that $800 hefty price tag.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active review
Source: GSM Arena English EN→zh-CN
The Galaxy S7 active takes everything great about the Galaxy S7 and puts it in a tougher and beefier body for outdoors enthusiasts or for the consumer that demands more from a smartphone than looks. Whether you are in construction, or you are a hiker, or you're just a clumsy person, the added grip and durability will surely give you that extra peace of mind. The Galaxy S7 active is about never having to worry about putting your phone in a case. Never having to worry about your screen shattering from sliding off a table. And there's the bigger battery as well.

Those people better like AT&T because that is the only place you can buy the Active. It also costs $100 more than the regular Galaxy S7. The bigger battery alone is worth the extra $100, but it’s not worth switching to AT&T over. The Active is a perfect example of a great device hampered by carrier exclusivity. But if you’re on AT&T, and you need something tougher, there’s no reason to avoid the Galaxy S7 Active.

90% The rugged flagship phone for clumsy fingers
Source: PC World English EN→zh-CN
If I packed up and moved north tomorrow—my backup plan is to live off the land if things go awry—I’d switch to the Galaxy S7 Active. It has all of what makes the Galaxy S7 wonderful, including stellar camera performance and long-lasting battery life, but it’s also a hedge against smartphone disasters. And it’s not ugly; I could see myself sporting the gold one if I were a committed camper.

This Isn’t Just a Protective Case
Source: Pocketnow English EN→zh-CN
Four generations ago, Samsung’s Active lineup was more of a device for clumsy people. A Galaxy S looking phone that could resist a little more, so long as you read the instructions well. The last two generations have instead been about telling the world that rugged doesn’t have to be ugly, and this year model continues to push that mentality forward.

Review: Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Active is ready to razzle dazzle
Source: Tech Crunch English EN→zh-CN
Ultimately, the Galaxy S7 Active is right for someone who needs a rugged phone, without sacrificing any of the luxuries of the all-glass and aluminum counterparts. While I do wish it wasn’t an AT&T exclusive, the S7 Active cements itself as a beast — with a huge battery. It may lack the finesse of what we’ve come to expect from Samsung, but given that you don’t have to worry about the Active’s body whatsoever, it’s a good trade-off.

Galaxy S7 vs Galaxy S7 Active head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English EN→zh-CN
The Galaxy S7 Active is the S7 in everything but looks. In fact, the hardened handset offers a few advantages over its close cousin, particularly the extra protection and superior battery. If you prefer your phone to be functional rather than fancy, the S7 Active could be the perfect fit. We'll hold out hope that Samsung sees fit to bring it over the water (after all, it could probably survive the dip).

87% Samsung Galaxy S7 active Review
Source: Phone Arena English EN→zh-CN
Samsung's Galaxy S Active phones have long held their own against the mainstream Galaxy S handsets, and that's more true this year than ever before. With performance that's right on par with the Galaxy S7, the same killer features like that incredible camera, and not having to sacrifice things like its fingerprint scanner, the Galaxy S7 active delivers without giving too much away in the process. But trade-offs there are, and this is a phone that's both bulkier than the GS7, not to mention more expensive: with a full retail price of just under $800, the S7 active comes in about $100 pricier than its non-rugged relative.

91% Rugged, durable and made to last
Source: Android Authority English EN→zh-CN
The Galaxy S7 Active is certainly not the best looking phone but the more rugged design and better battery life are more than worth the compromise. In fact, considering the more fragile build of the Galaxy S7 and its susceptibility to damage, the S7 Active is arguably the better smartphone. If the Galaxy S7 were a sports car, the Galaxy S7 Active could only be considered a tank; both will get you to your final point but only one will handle anything you can throw at it.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active hands on
Source: Android Authority English EN→zh-CN
The most distinguishable difference here is that the S7 Active features a design that’s substantially more rugged in nature. That shouldn’t surprise anyone, as it largely doesn’t deviate from the designs of previous Active devices. It’s not premium by the imagination – as the glass meets metal bezel design of the standard Galaxy S7 is replaced by one that’s mostly dominated by the same textured rear pattern we’ve seen before – accompanied by soft touch matte bumpers around the sides of the phone to absorb shock.
