Samsung Galaxy S7 Active Specifications
Compared to the standard Galaxy S7, the Active variant is unabashedly bulky. It’s 0.38in (9.9mm) thick as opposed to the (0.31) 7.9mm Galaxy S7, and the latter’s svelte metallic frame is replaced with rubber and polycarbonate the building pillars of mobile shock defense. Samsung claims that the handset can sur While the regular S7 does have basic protection against water and dust, the S7 Active takes that to MIL-STD-810G level, meaning it’s able to withstand extreme climate conditions and altitude pressures. Yes, you can quite literally go to war with this thing! As usual, the original handset’s capacitive touch keys have been replaced with tougher physical buttons. They may not be quite as beautiful, but you can count on them in the extremes.
True to form, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active has a 5.1-inch Quad-HD resolution Super AMOLED display with an ‘Always On’ mode for glancing at information such as the time, calendar, and notifications without touching and waking the screen. The high pixel density of 576ppi makes for a very sharp screen. The display is also covered with scratch-resistant glass, but it doesn’t feature extra toughness in comparison with the Galaxy S7’s.
The Galaxy S7 Active is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chip, armed with four custom 64-bit CPU cores, a powerful Adreno 530 GPU, and a cutting-edge X12 LTE modem. Although the number of CPU cores has been reduced to four from the eight stock ARM cores ticking in the previous-gen SD 810 chip, the 820 boasts 30% to 35% improvements in performance and power efficiency. Likewise, the Adreno 530 GPU is up to 40% faster than the older Adreno 430 unit. The chip is paired with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB of UFS flash storage, expandable with a microSD card.
All is fine and well here, for the Galaxy S7 Active features the Galaxy S7’s highly acclaimed 12MP rear camera. The 1/2-inch camera sensor’s individual pixels are bigger than the 1.12 micron dots on 20MP and 1.2 micron dots on 16MP sensors, which, coupled with a wider aperture, lets them soak in more light – up to 56%, according to Samsung’s estimates.Moreover, the camera is equipped with dual-PD (dual photodiode) technology for quicker auto-focus. Instead of each pixel site comprising a single photodiode for image capture, the Dual Pixel CMOS sensor allocates two photodiodes for every single pixel site. This makes focus quicker and more accurate, both for photos and video recording. According to Samsung, its dual pixel tech is a first for smartphone cameras. And on the front, there’s a 5MP cam with f/1.7 aperture that’s pretty excellent for the action selfies you’ll be taking with the Galaxy S7 Active.
While not as tough as a Caterpilar handset, the S7 Active is solid enough, and also the single most powerful and up-to-date rugged phone available in the States. Available starting June 10, AT&T customers will be able to buy it on AT&T Next for $26.50 per month for 30 months, or on AT&T Next Every Year for $33.13 per month for 24 months.
