For all the people out there looking to buy a phone that can resist to some "harsh treatment" and can keep going up to a limited depth beneath the waterline while having excellent specification this might be the moment you were waiting for: the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is on sale on eBay for the price of $349.95. The offer is excellent as long as you don't mind the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is refurbished, it is the AT&T version and it is only available in the color blue. But other than these, there are no reasons to look away as the phone packs all the punch of the standard Samsung Galaxy S4. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is quite different from other phones in this segment. By this we mean that the Galaxy S4 Active is not very different from the standard version of the S4 with some certain exceptions. These exceptions are the 8 MP camera and the LCD screen. The normal Galaxy S4 has an AMOLED screen which delivers better quality images. But with these aside, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active has all the same hardware which makes it a very competitive device. And it has quite a few things extra such as the fact that it is water-resistant (the Galaxy S4 active is able to resist up to one meter underwater for about half an hour) and the fact that it can fare better if it is dropped due to thicker material used in its fabrication. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is powered by Android 4.2. If you were to get this phone from other place you would have to spend somewhere between $500 and $595 which is a considerable amount. So if a refurbished phone and AT&T's locked bootloader are something that do not bother you then you should take advantage of this offer and purchase the phone. Shipment is free within the US and shipping is also done internationally with a few exceptions. So are you guys thinking of buying the refurbished Samsung Galaxy S4 Active from eBay?
