Feels Great in the Hand
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active just feels awesome in the hand. It has a lightweight aluminum or metal design around the entire frame with screws securely holding it together for added durability. However, the sides are a textures soft-touch plastic that's easy to hold and grip.
The Galaxy S6 Active is less than 1/4-inch taller than the regular Galaxy S6, so you won't have to worry about a big, thick, uncomfortable phone. They've basically managed to pack everything into a device barely bigger than the original, and offer so much more that it's possibly my favorite new smartphone.
No it doesn't look as elegant, but I'm all for function over form. I'll be taking it camping this weekend and tossing it through the ringer, testing its capabilities, and I'll report back in my full review how it all holds up.
