More GB's

Does anyone know if this device will be getting more GB's like the regular S6? I love The Active, 32 GB's is not enough for me however. Thanks

What the s6 should have been...

liking my s6 Active so far. This is what the s6 should have been originally with the waterproofing and bigger battery. I had the s6 edge and loved the form factor and features but the battery life was not good at all.
it is a nice phone but battery life are short and

LTE/CDMA modes?

I notice the modes supported by this phone are far fewer than for the Galaxy S6, at least according to the specs I see here at PhoneScoop. But the AT&T site says it supports:


Wireless Technology
4G-LTE
Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 17, 20, 29 and 30

4G
HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul

3G - UMTS
850/1900/2100MHz

GSM/GPRS/EDGE
850/900/1800/1900MHz

Wi-Fi connectivity
802.11 a/b/g/n/ac

So I'm wondering if AT&T just did a cut-and-paste? Or if PhoneScoop left some out.

I want to be sure I can get some form of 3G or better when I travel in Europe and Asia with this phone.
Our draft info was limited to the bands we could confirm. Samsung people looked that over and said it was correct, so that's what we published. But I believe there are additional bands supported. I've just added some more, and will confirm the rest.

32gb only?

No expansion and only 32gb?
Not a deal breaker completely but certainly a dissapointment

Nice to see a larger battery though
I agree it should have additional options for internal storage but this is one of a few phones i think its a great idea that theres no expandable memory as well as the sealed battery. less of a chance for user error like with the previous versions

Will any other carriers get it?

I would like to take it because of the larger capacity battery. But why is it only available thru AT&T? I need it for Verizon and Sprint as well.

My biggest complaint with the new S6 is the battery. Would they offer the bigger battery on the regular model (I wouldn't mind a drop thicker phone) it would be top of my list.
s6 Active is exclusive with ATT. No other carriers got the s5 active so I doubt we will see that change. Also getting a bigger battery is not possible with the s6. As im sure we all know the s6 battery life isn't the best because of the 2k definition ...
