The Galaxy S7 Active! This beast of a phone is what happens when a Galaxy S7 and an Otterbox make babies. A rugged, durable piece of tech. Its time to put the phone to the test. What will happen when the screen is scratched, or the phone gets burned? Will the phone stand up to the bend test?! The only way to know is to watch the video. Let me know what you think in the comments!!

Samsung does offer top plastic layer screen replacements. I am not sure of the cost, but if your plastic layer gets scratched, contact them to get it swapped out. Motorola’s ‘shattershield’ replacement is $30 and you have to do it yourself.

  1. Hmm, isn't the screen on the S7A Gorilla Glass 4 with a plastic shatter-resistant layer on top of it?

    Essentially, you're just scratching and damaging the top layer, which means the actual glass underneath shouldn't suffer from as much damage, or even at all. If the top layer can be replaced without needing the entire display, then repairs shouldn't cost as much in theory, but as it turns out, the layer is fused with the glass in the case of the S7A.

    My personal advice? It may be tougher than the regular model, but please don't go doing something stupid with it. It's more durable if you happen to somehow drop or unknowingly torture it during something like a hike or an outdoor trip but it''s not a phone that is completely indestructible, or one that's forged from the fires of Mount Doom or whatever. It's more durable than the standard model, but it's still a phone at the end of the day. It's a phone that can take much more punishment than most phones, especially for drops (since the plastic layer is more susceptible to scratches than a Gorilla Glass panel, but as I said, it's there for shatter-resistance for drops), but still a phone. I say the same thing for the Droid Turbo 2, other "rugged" devices and even some phones like the LG V10.
