4 things you'll love about the Samsung GS6 active (and 4 things you'll hate)

Al Sacco | July 23, 2015
Samsung's latest 'ruggedized' smartphone, the Galaxy S6 active, is an evolution of one of the best Android phones available, and it's particularly well-suited for business use — though the device falls short in some areas.

4) Galaxy S6 active has only 32GB of storage
If you or your staff needs more than 32GB of on-board storage, the Galaxy S6 active isn't an option -- it's available only in a 32GB version, and it doesn't have a memory card slot for expandable storage. The standard GS6 and GS6 edge are available with three storage configurations: 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. Samsung's Berne didn't offer details on why the active only has 32GB of storage, but he did say wireless carriers often dictate the storage options available for the specific devices and models they sell. Regardless of it whether it was a Samsung or AT&T decision, business users who want or need more storage will not appreciate the GS6 active's lack of options.  

Is the Samsung Galaxy S6 active right for you? 
The rugged GS6 active is designed for a very specific type of user: The outdoors, active type who regularly puts more wear and tear on their mobile device than the average smartphone can take. The reality, though, is that everybody drops their phones on occasion, and the active is a great option for lots of people and organizations, including businesses that want to reduce costs associated with replacing busted phones. 

You can learn more about the Galaxy S6 active, or purchase a device of your own, on the Samsung and AT&T websites.
