On a rainy Friday, the last thing I was expecting is to be surprised by a Fedex package in my doorstep, and as it turns out this is a phone I was actually waiting for. The Samsung Galaxy S8 Active has just arrived, and boy are we surprised by this package.

I think I've spent the last 3 years complaining about the cheap boxes that AT&T ships its phones with, and it seems somebody finally got the memo. Unboxing expensive phones should never start with a cheap first impression, and this unboxing video proves that the Galaxy S8 Active is being treated differently.

This device literally lasts me two days on a full charge, and that's with both mobile data and WiFi on, location and auto sync on also 😯

Hi. I wanted to show you this video so you can see for yourself that the screen on the S8 Active and the 7 are both Gorilla glass 5 under a plastic screen protector. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFwq-unVlwA

Here is another video that shows what the S8 Active looks like with a tempered Glass screen protector after removing the stock plastic screen protector. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=km6WNt63kDM

There was a lot of misinformation about this phone and its earlier version the S7 Active. Samsung tried to make people believe this was some sort of hybrid screen protector that only their technicians could fix. costing over $100 USD.

I paid about $7 for 2 of these tempered glass protectors from Amazon. Please pass this information on.
Thank you.

So the s8 active comes with no earphones at all and yet the s8/s8+ comes with $100 earphones?!!? -_-

The plastic screen can be removed on the S8 Active same as the S7 Active. here's a video on how to do it and what it looks like afterwards with glass in place of the plastic. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFwq-unVlwA

I picked this phone up today and I gotta say I love the feel and the specs even though the note 8 beats it by a landslide and it works like the s8 and s8 plus

When is your review of the Galaxy S8 Active going online? I am looking forward to having this phone replace my Note 5 (not fond of the latest design aesthetic of the S8/S8+/Note 8) due to its ruggedness, battery capacity, and flat screen.

Just get an lg g6 and get an ultra protective case.... Wayyy cheaper (and in some cases better- you can get it unlocked!)
