The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active has a toughened body with bumpers on the corners to help protect it from drops. Its 5.1-inch screen is shatter-resistant, being able to withstand drops of up to five feet, and it’s IP68-rated to stand up to water submersion of up to 5 feet for up to 30 minutes. The toughened body also has an MIL STD-810G body to withstand dust, extreme temperatures, salt fog, and more.
Another major upgrade that the GS7 Active has over the standard GS7 is its battery. While the Galaxy S7 comes equipped with a 3000mAh battery, the Galaxy S7 Active includes a 4000mAh battery. And rounding out the GS7 Active's new features is an Activity button that you can use to launch the outdoor-themed Activity Zone or reprogram to launch your favorite app.
The rest of the Galaxy S7 Active’s feature set is similar to the Galaxy S7’s. The GS7 Active has a 5.1-inch 2560x1440 Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage, and a microSD slot for adding even more storage. Also included is a 12-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. On the software side, the GS7 Active comes with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
