Samsung Galaxy S4 Active

Waterproof phone! I'm so excited, I want to switch.

Been on iOS only for 4 years. Not a huge android person but I've water damaged my phone 3 times. Got it back working the second time (last year) and going to see if it works tonite. Currently it's dissected on my desk to dry it out(rice and all that didnt work last time) and my new battery is in my mailbox.

So I figured I'll invest in a $100 waterproof case for my phone when I get the new iphone 5s. But I'd have to wait until September and my camera on my current phone doesnt work. The S4 active has the camera of the S3 but the S3 has way better picture than the iphone 4 and current 5.

Also ATT has half off until June 30th for the S4 active, so only $100.

The only thing I hate aobut it is that it's so big. If only there was an S4 mini. Supposedly the ultra version (which combines the 2 and another) will be coming in the future. I like to carry my phone in my pocket and the iphone is nice and small for that.

    I have the Galaxy Note 2 and it is even bigger than the Galaxy 4; I actually really like having a big phone! I mean, phablet. Both are supposed to fit in most jeans pockets (tho I never carry mine that way).

    Note II fits women's jeans pockets without sticking out?? LOL I dont think so. I just tested my coworkers s4 and it fits in my work pockets but ill have to test it out on jeans. I carry my phone in my pockets a lot. But this phone is so appealing that i might not care if it sticks out. Waterproof?? Think of all the great beach, lake and river pix I can get!

    You said fit in. You didn't say anything about not sticking out. LOL And I meant back pocket. But yeah something in its advertising claims it can fit into most back pockets. I thought that would be a selling point for men only but I guess for some women too?

    I love everything about my Galaxy Note 2!! Also I have never carried my phones in my pant pockets, I always place them in my purse.

    We keep ours in our front pants pockets. I don't know if the s4 is bigger than the s3.

    Cool, good to know. They looked about the same size to me in the store. I would never put my phone in my back pocket. Women's pockets are smaller and it could easily slip out when sitting and standing and if it sticks out at all, it would be easy to steal.

    I like to be hands free if I can. Watching over a purse or holding it is so annoying! Last week I just took my important stuff out, gave it to the bf and put my wristlet on the bar.

    I should have mentioned that depending on the pants, the phone may stick up out of the pocket a bit, especially if they wear low cut waists. :-)
