Remember everything in HD

Equip yourself with a camera so sharp it blurs the line between smartphones and professional photography.

Aqua Mode lets you take pictures under water while the Drama Shot mode tracks every part of that high dive with striking results. The Eraser lets you delete random people who wander into your frame, while the Live Filters accentuate the mood of your pictures with dozens of treatments. When you’re done snapping, use Story Album™ to share your pictures or turn them into a printed photo book.

Total control of your content

Enjoy a smartphone that intuitively knows the best way for you to experience content on the fly. Air View™ instantly previews photos, files, links and text when you hover your finger over the phone. Never lose your place while watching video with Smart Pause™. Look away and it stops what you’re watching until you return, so you never miss a second of action. With Air Gesture™, you can skip songs, check notifications or answer a call with a wave of the hand. And Smart Rotation keeps your screen oriented the right way so you get the most out of movies and e-books. Magic- Sorta.

Whether business or pleasure, harness the efficiency of a smartphone that’s built to make room in your hectic schedule. The Multi Window feature lets you use two apps side by side — no need to stop watching a live game to tweet about it. SAFE™ keeps work data secure and personal stuff private no matter where you are or which network you’re using.

Plus, with Samsung Smart Switch™ and Easy Mode, there’s no learning curve when you switch over. Load your software from other operating systems, and it’ll automatically find your apps on Google Play™ or suggest similar ones. You can also simplify your homescreen and take your time discovering the amazing possibilities of your new Samsung Galaxy S4 Active.

Owner Reviews Submit a Review

I've had the Galaxy S4 for about a year and have zero issues with it. I went from a BlackBerry to the Galaxy and I tell people it is like going from a Model A to a Ferrari. I like everything about the phone; sometimes I find the screen to be too sensitive and adjusting has helped some. Overall I think it is fantastic and rate it a 5-star.
