Samsung S8 Active Review - Love it

Posted on: October 27th, 2017 by pmm150

Hi. I am a former S5 Active customer and could not wait for the S8 active's release. I am a busy parent with kids so our family heavily relies on mobile phones when running around town for kid sporting events, etc. The first thing that I was amazed by was the battery life. There is a performance mode feature on the phone that also helps extends the life. Very helpful! The phone itself runs apps at blazing speeds. Could not be any happier. I understand display ratings are important for some reviewers but for me. I am not concerned with the display resolution as long as youtube/ netflix is running when in a tight pinch. Taking pictures and video were a huge step up from the S5 active so this was noticeable too. I found myself using wifi-calling features more often but that is because my carrier doesn't reach everywhere. Very happy. The design is great, very dense when holding it and very rugged in appearance. I like that the back panel is no longer removable. The only issue that we have experienced was that the humidity sensor definitely works in southern climates! When the outdoor temps were 90+ degrees with very high humidity, we had to find creative ways to recharge the battery during a "reboot" procedure that we googled. Other than that, we are very pleased. Would recommend to other parents too.
