Galaxy S6 Active: Should you consider Samsung’s more rugged flagship?


The Galaxy S6 is one of the best smartphones we’ve ever used. Period. But its fancy design and eye toward futurism didn’t come without sacrifices. Not only did the inclusion of a glass back make the device feel more fragile, but the device was no longer water resistant. These were key features Samsung touted with the Galaxy S5, and suddenly they were ditched as the company focused more on aesthetics.

It seems like the move ultimately paid off. Not only is the Galaxy S6 one of the most beautiful phones on the market, but its combination of speed, software improvements and wireless charging features make it a contender for phone of the year.
