Many of us have more of an active lifestyle and we have to make sure we get a great case to protect our device (which is also an investment). Well now we can throw away the case and be happy and feel safe with a phone in its own skin. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active.
A Waterproof Phone
When I heard it was waterproof, I felt the need to have some fun and test it out. The S7 Active can survive at depths of 5’ or less for up to 30 minutes. So we went to our lake to check it out.
When I went to drop the S7 Active into the water, I was a bit hesitant. I went to an area of the lake which is about 2 feet deep, I wanted to make sure I could still see and find it ok.
I said a little prayer and dropped it in.
Waiting truly is the hardest part and I started to get a little bored, so I decided to try calling the phone and see if it would work underwater.
Sure enough, the phone started ringing underwater!
I thought that was pretty impressive, so I sent it a text and the text went through too.
As I gained a little confidence in the S7 Active, I got a little more daring. I decided to skip the phone like a stone, it worked pretty well, and fortunately I found it every time!
After we were done with our S7 water activities I decided to check out the device. The S7 Active looked great, screen and camera were perfect, email, internet and phone worked awesome, everything was all good.
There was one minor issue, which ended up just correcting itself. After spending some time buried in the sand, there were some sand grains that made the buttons a little tough to push. The sand was wedged between the buttons and the housing. After pushing the buttons about 20 times, they loosened up and the sand worked its way out and now the S7 is back to being perfect.
From a physical wear and tear point of view, the Galaxy S7 Active was very impressive and lived up to the hype.
Outside of the rugged and shatter-resistant screen, the most impressive aspect of the S7 Active is the battery. The 4,000Ah battery is the largest of any Galaxy S device. This battery provides up to 32 hours of talk time and can fully charge in under 2 hours.
AT&T and a Special BOGO Bonus
The S7 Active is exclusively on AT&T and there are some incredible deals going on at the moment. There are multiple options for buying the phone as part of your plan. When you add a S7 to your contract, for a limited time there is a buy one get one (BOGO) option with another Samsung device. The Gear S2 smartwatch and the Galaxy Tab E are both available with a new S7 Active purchase. How great of a deal is that? I love it!
The Galaxy S7 Active comes in a variety of stylish colors, so not only is it rugged but it gains some major style points too. Available in Gold, Grey and Camo, you have choices of what phone you would like to go swimming with.
