Thank you fellow stromtroopers for your insights and knowledge. Sorry for the late reply, been working long hours. I have yet to go back and look again at the S4 Active but have been inquiring among some of the tech people I work with and most own Android systems, including the Samsung Galaxy. None knew about the Active waterproof series and were very intrigued, as were the Iphone folks. I have had a Samsung Galaxy for three years and have been very pleased with the performance. I agree that the camera has not been the best so I do bring a Olympia waterproof point and shoot pocket size that travels everywhere with me.
What I am really intrigued with is if the phone is truly waterproof so it can be simply mounted and left exposed. Ockerstrom, I agree, there is a photo stabilization function, not sure if this can be used when shooting video. DouginKY, I agree, the camera function may not be the best, but would be very interested if I could set the phone up in a spot to shoot video by voice command! Realshelby, thanks for the feedback. I would be interested to see how this phone performs for you. I plan to spend some time with this phone tomorrow at the store and put it through its paces so hopefully I can give some more comprehensive feedback. Tiller4me, before I resort to a waterproof shell, I plan on exploring what a phone like this would offer. Need to update anyway. Thanks again for all the great feedback. I really enjoy this forum and all the well informed members that belong here.
