The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active is available today at AT&T stores and online, in case you forgot. We have one in house!
Since the Galaxy S6 Active is really just a Galaxy S6 in a rugged shell and with a larger 3500mAh battery, we do plan to put it through some tests and to review it, but the review might be on the short side. The display, performance, camera, and software experience really should be identical to the original S6, so that leaves us a couple of areas to focus on and get back to you in a hurry. (more…)
The AT&T LG G4 is receiving its first update this week as software version H81010E. The update appears to be pretty minor at just 26MB and with only one change noted by AT&T, which is “AT&T Address Book enhancements.” The odd thing about this update is the fact that a number of users are complaining that the update is installing without their permission.

Samsung and AT&T unwrapped their latest Active exclusive this morning with an announcement of the Galaxy S6 Active. The phone is the latest in the Active line that has been an exclusive for AT&T dating back to the Galaxy S4.
For those new to the Active line, think of it as a phone that is every bit as good as the current flagship (the Galaxy S6) except that it was created for an active life style. The phone is dustproof, and water and shock resistant, comes in camo colorways, and should be able to withstand drops, scrapes, and bangs. The phone still features the 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, cameras, and Exynos 7420 from the Galaxy S6, but again, has been given some rugged strength. Oh, Samsung also tossed in a massive 3500mAh battery.
The full specs are below. (more…)
Well, they sort of did through YouTube. Unless they pull this video, we will go ahead and assume that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active is now official for AT&T.
As we expected, this is very much a Galaxy S6 only with an “active” body and special set of features. It still includes a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display (577ppi), Samsung’s Exynos 7420 octa-core 64-bit processor, 32GB internal storage, and 16MP/5MP cameras. But, it does also feature a big ol’ 3500mAh battery and a quick launch action button on its left side, so you can quickly pull up a flashlight, compass, or other goodies from the phone’s “Activity Zone.” (more…)
Even though we already know everything about the Galaxy S6 Active itself, AT&T has yet to come out and officially announce the device, complete with availability and pricing. But finally, it appears the company is ready to awaken the hypebeast on Twitter, possibly teasing an upcoming announcement for the device in a tweet sent out yesterday morning. (more…)
Without any official announcement from AT&T or Samsung yet, the Galaxy S6 Active is now up on Samsung’s site, just waiting for people to acknowledge it. Last night, more photos of the device hit the web, but thanks to Samsung’s website, we now have full specifications and user manuals for the phone that details everything we may want to know. (more…)
After showing us supposed photos of the yet-to-be-announced Samsung Galaxy S6 Active on its way to AT&T, @evleaks has returned this afternoon with a fresh photo of the device. This time the camouflage is gone in favor of a much more traditional back which Evan refers to as being a bit more “tasteful.” I don’t know that there is anything tasteful about a rugged phone, designed to withstand the elements through blocky protective gear, but it is at least a little less obnoxious.

Sad day for Atrix HD owners on AT&T, as Motorola confirmed today that the company shall not be delivering a Kit Kat update to the device, instead, leaving it to fade into the history books on Jelly Bean. The last timeframe publicly made by Motorola for the update to roll out was for Q3 of 2014, and as you may have noticed recently, it’s now June of 2015. (more…)
