Samsung's Galaxy S8 Active ditches curves for brawn

Samsung's Galaxy S8 Active ditches curves for brawn

Again, this will survive falls, whereas the non-Active phone may crack after taking a tumble.

Galaxy S8 Active owners can use Bixby to do nearly anything you can do on the phone, all by using your voice.

Galaxy S8 Active comes with a 12 Megapixel Dual Pixel camera with Dual LED flash.

Note: All Galaxy S8 series owners are advised to buy protective guards to cover the front and back of their devices to prevent them from getting cracked or dented.

In the process of making the phone tougher, Samsung has ditched the edge-to-edge infinity display and took on a bigger battery for ergonomic reasons.

This phone is exclusive to AT&T for some undisclosed period of time, after which it will come to other carriers.

Trump claims support is stronger than ever
Donald Trump kicked off his campaign for president [VIDEO ] back in the summer of 2015 and did so in controversial fashion. Trump also claimed his low approval ratings were fabricated, pointing to crowd sizes at his recent rallies.

The smartphone comes with a 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display with the screen ratio of 18.5:9, similar to that of the Galaxy S8 and S8+.

Front camera: On the front, the Galaxy S8 Active sports an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus.

'Only AT&T is offering you access to entertainment on your terms with Samsung Galaxy S8 Active starting this week, ' said Kevin Petersen, senior vice president of Device and Network Services Marketing at AT&T, said.

While the Galaxy S8 is a popular and noteworthy device, the Active model is exciting thanks to the extremely durable design and longer battery life. A whopping 4000mAh battery with fast charging support is on board.

The Galaxy S8 Active is more like a cross between a premium, often delicate, flagship smartphone and a sturdier version, albeit one that misses out on one key feature and also costs more.

This is unlike the recently launched flagship phones by Samsung. The company's "Active" line of handsets uses "military-grade materials for the utmost durability", protecting it from "shock, abrasion, tilting, or twisting". The phone is also IP68 certified for water and dust resistance.
