Lisa Gade reviews the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active, the rugged version of the S7 that’s exclusive to AT&T in the US. The S7 Active has the same excellent core specs as the standard S7: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU with Adreno 530 graphics, 4 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of storage plus a microSD card slot. It has the same 12MP rear camera, front 5MP camera and S Health with heart rate monitor and blood oxygen monitor. The phone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI and app suite.
It weighs 5.63 ounces, which is approx. 1.3 ounces heavier than the S7 and it has a rugged casing that meets IP68 specs for water and dust resistance and it has a shatterproof 5.1” Gorilla Glass 4 display (also QHD Super AMOLED like the regular Galaxy S7). It’s priced at $795 ($100 more than the standard model).
