Won't fall to pieces.
Engineered to be shatter-resistant, the Galaxy S7 active gives you extra protection, making the occasional fumble, stumble or drop nothing to worry about.** All without sacrificing the screen quality of the Quad HD Super AMOLED display, so you can lose yourself in movies, games and more.
Faster, sharper, better.
Revolutionary dual-pixel technology gives you professional camera performance. With an autofocus that works faster than the blink of an eye, you can say goodbye to blurry photos. And bigger pixels and a wider aperture capture more light for better low-light photos. The Galaxy S7 active takes stunning photos every time.
It's your stuff. Keep it.
Running out of memory should never be a thing. With the Samsung Galaxy S7 active, it won’t be. If 32GB††
isn’t already enough, you can expand your memory up to an additional 200GB with a microSD card.†††
Forget the cloud or having to search for a hard drive. All your photos and 4K videos are always in one place and in your hands.
Pay almost anywhere you can swipe or tap your card.
Samsung Pay is the mobile payment service that works almost anywhere you can swipe or tap your card. From local grocery stores to corner coffee shops to taco trucks, it’s highly secure and simple to use with the latest Samsung Galaxy devices.††††
