Review: Samsung Galaxy S6 Active for AT&T
Samsung did a great job with the Galaxy S6 Active. It takes all the appealing facets of the S6/Edge and packages them into a more robust shell. The Galaxy S6 Active is well designed and well made, with quality materials. The phone is a winner in most respects.
The strong aluminum frame adds bulk to the Active's profile, but also gives the phone a warrior-bred appearance. The trade-off is size and weight, which make the phone less hand- and pocket-friendly than the regular S6. The quad-HD screen will knock your socks off. Some may be put off by the locked-in battery and lack of memory card.
The phone performed great on AT&T's network in terms of data and call quality. The Active's larger battery delivers a much-needed boost in power for the phone, which lasts hours longer than the S6 and S6 Edge.

Apps all work perfectly thanks to the zippy processor. The camera does a fantastic job and the camera app is a joy to use. There are plenty of media apps to keep you entertained, and productivity apps for when you need to get work done.
In many ways the Galaxy S6 Active is more appealing than the standard model. As long as you don't mind losing the fingerprint scanner and sleek appearance of the S6, the Active offers better battery life and protection from accidental baths.
The Galaxy S6 Active is an excellent handset and I recommend it highly.
