Aaron goes in-depth with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, one of the new members in the Galaxy S 4 line. It offers a 1.9 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 5-inch 1080p HD display (LCD), 8-megapixel shooter with 1080p HD recording, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, 4G LTE, a 2,600 mAh battery, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz.
