This S4 Active adds itself to Samsung Galaxy series but in a different category i.e. outdoor. Active is water and dust resistant and is IP67 certified, so you don't have to leave your mobile at home while leaving for a beach. With fully sealed body, it doesn't allow dust particles to enter inside and can withstand for 30 minutes when submerged under one meter depth of water. So, now you can try for underwater photography just like a Sony Xperia Z does.

Now you don't have to search the icons for launching camera app, the volume key is assigned the task to easily open the camera app. And a long press of volume key turns the Galaxy S4 Active's camera into a powerful flash light to assist you in low light conditions. Now this too deserves to be the title 'companion of your life.'
