Wednesday 05th of June 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
Samsung made the Galaxy S4 Active official this morning as their take on a rugged device built specifically for handling tough conditions for those with active lifestyles.

The device can actually be submerged in 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. It also has a water-resistant earphone jack, so you can take your tunes to the trees or the beach. The 8MP camera includes a

Samsung officially announced the Galaxy S4 Active today. This “rugged” dust and water-resistant version of the flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone includes many of the same features as the original, but is its own phone all at the same time.A company press release claims the new device is “purposefully designed for active users who love the outdoors.” The newest smartphone to Samsung’s line-up has a fully-sealed design, which is supposed to keep dust particles out and also protect it against water damage for up to 30 minutes of submergence at a depth of one meter. The Galaxy S4 Active also features a water-resistant earphone jack that allows users to use earphones in more adventurous conditions. Each of these features were designed to comply with the standard IP67 certification.As far as specs go, the Galaxy S4 Active’s main features include a 5-inch Full HD TFT LCD screen (with pixel density set at 443 ppi), an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi ac, NFC, Wi-Fi Direct, irDA, and USB connectivity.

What is color of water damage indicator on S4?


Friday 21st of June 2013 / androidforums.com
Is the water damage indicator on the Verizon S4 supposed to be all white, or is it white with pink squiggly lines? We have one phone that I'm virtually positive hasn't been exposed to water that has squiggly pink lines on a white sticker in the battery compartment.

S4 Antenna (and battery indicator) problems - possible to replace parts?


Thursday 01st of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi, After a little accident with my S4 (water damage) the antenna seems to be broken. It shows anywhere from 0 to 6 ASU, and I'm not even able to register on my phone network. I've seen different parts on ebay, and I'm just not sure what to get. Does it sound about right to order both the antenna part (which I assume is this one, both loudspeaker and antenna) and to be sure, antenna cable as well: I don't really feel comfortable changing this myself, but I suppose it won't be a problem to get someone to do it for me. Could there be any other parts that needs to be changed, or does this sound about right? On a side note, another thing not working after the water damage is the battery indicator, even with a different undamaged battery. Anything to do about this? Cheers

AT&T to offer one-time exchange for water damaged Galaxy S4 Active


Tuesday 06th of August 2013 / androidauthority.com
According to Murphy’s law, “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong” – and how!What happens if you are a Galaxy S4 Active owner and things go wrong when exposing your little darling to water? Unfortunately, conventional warranties don’t cover water damage. The good news is that AT&T and Samsung may soon be offering an exchange program for those that run into water-related trouble, at least if an unnamed tipster reporting to PhoneArena proves correct.In order to give their customers extra piece of mind, AT&T looks to be teaming up with Samsung to replace damaged devices with new Galaxy S4 Active handsets. The only catch is that this is a one time deal – after that, you’re on your own. The source claims that the details of this arrangement come from an internal menu over at AT&T, though no word on when the plan will go into effect.So why are AT&T and Samsung offering the program so late into the game, when the phone has already been on sale for a while? It’s hard to say for sure, though high-profile reports of water damage could certainl

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active First Teardown & Water Damage Report (W/Pics)


Wednesday 07th of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi, here is my story about my experience with the new Galaxy S4 Active. I am an experienced gadget addict, diver and snowboard guy who deal with things and procedures carefully. I know how serious water can do damage to electronics and take every steps to prevent accidents. So the Galaxy S4 Active attracted my attention because of its waterproof capabilities (as in the advertisments) and the ability to change batteries seem to suit my needs. I decided to take the new phone for a spin. Test 1 - Shower Wet Hands Test (No direct spraying & submersions at all)Made sure everything is sealed properly and pressed below the flash, inspected every seal. Then I took it to shower and grabbed it with wet hands briefly to test the water resistant ability. After an hour or so, I realized there are strange spikes on the top left part of the screen. They did not look like water damage and the spikes persists in recovery mode as well so it is not software issue. The spikes eventually went away slowly after ~5 hours. This got me very worried. Test 2 - Submersion Test (Submersion in a tray with 1

Help! ATT Claiming my S4 has water damage. Can anyone take a look at this pic real quick?


Wednesday 14th of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
This phone has never been dropped in any amount of water. Its never gotten wetter than the humid east coast air. After 4 hours with ATT today I took the case off myself just to see what the hell they were talking about and this is what I see. Unless I'm wrong, that factory water indicator with the purple Xs is showing NO DAMAGE. The sensor on the battery is white as well. My question is this: what is the big ugly pink sticker on the right and why is the case itself all marked up with sharpie? I didn't do that. Thank you.

Water damage indicator


Wednesday 08th of January 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi all, I purchased a supposedly brand new S4 (no contract) in December from my regular Kiosk in a mall (purchased over 20 devices from them never had problems) today I had to change my sim card and I noticed the sticker under the battery was missing like it was never there at all. When I first got the phone the 4 pieces of plastic that surrounds it 1 of them was missing but I didn't bother about it too much, but the absence of the water damage indicator bothers me because the phone never fell never got wet or had any damage well at least with me. It is made in Korea, any advice as to what I should do? Is it common for some devices not to have the water damage indicator? On the box next to GT-I9500 has UD does it mean anything in particular? Is it refurbished? TIA
