Samsung has made its Galaxy S4, the new flagship of the Galaxy line of smartphones from the Korean.It wasn’t enough this release, Samsung also did an “update” in the release with a version that is more resistant: the Galaxy S4 Active. The idea is to have a more resistant and durable, with its launch scheduled for the US and Sweden, until July of this year.
A market of users more “active”
Sometimes it is a little difficult to understand the kicks of the market from Samsung, as was the trombolho that was the Galaxy Note (which by the way, was a sales success). Following this trend, “strange”, one of the senior executives from Samsung said that the Galaxy S4 Active came for active people and who love the outdoors. In our opinion, these people already have phones good enough or are other things more practical for use. The idea of adding protection, resistance and elements of design to create a device that thrives in an active environment and is built for a life of travel and exploration is well until valid.
It is never bad to have a mobile phone more difficult to break, even if you feel strange to the target audience of the Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Active: Specifications
The Galaxy S4 Active is similar to the Galaxy S4 in specs, but offers a design sealed comparable to that of the Sony Xperia Z. The device has an IP67 rating, which means that it is waterproof and dust, enduring up to 30 minutes at a depth of one meter. There is still also has a headphone waterproof. I don’t need to say that we do not recommend the use of the appliance in or near water right?
As the flagship device from Samsung, the Galaxy S4 Active has a screen Full HD 5 inch touchscreen (TFT instead of SuperAMOLED) and a quad-core processor of 1.9 GHz with a GPU dedicated (to process graphics), a perfect combination to take advantage of all the density of 441 PPI (Pixels Per Inch/Pixels Per Inch).
However, it has a rear camera a little worse, with 8 Megapixels, compared with 13 Megapixels of its brother more delicate. She takes pictures with 3264 x 2448 pixels, has autofocus, LED flash, geo-tagging, focus touch, detection of faces and smiles, image stabilization, HDR, and a curious aqua mode. Oh, and it shoots with the rear camera of 8 Megapixels and the front 2-Megapixel camera with Full HD resolution of 1080 p at 30 fps. Phenomenal!
Bluetooth, GPS, luxuries all with the scrolling images with the eyes and everything are present on the handset also, which will come with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, NFC support, and support for 3G HSDPA and 4G LTE.
It is also chunkier than the brother delicate, but that should not be there a big problem. It gives a balcony in the video:
Worth the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active?
Sure! With the S4, the Samsung came bursting with a more powerful cpu, a screen, high-resolution, two cameras of excellent quality and skills of software such as scrolling with your eyes and others. If you have a Galaxy S3, still think that can wait a year or a little more for the exchange. If you want to buy a top of the line and have a bonus of strength without caring as much with the Megapixels of a camera, the Galaxy S4 Active is the model for you. If you are a crazy person that likes to go to near the pool and rivers with your device, we also recommend this model. After all, it is waterproof. Just do not risk a lot in that resistance with a device that costs more than$1800 and will probably cost more even if they get to Brazil. But it’s worth it.
