Earlier this week I posted about the new Samsung Galaxy S7 Active coming to AT&T today. It is official: AT&T has updated their website and the S7 Active is now available for purchase. The phone is available in three colors – Sandy Gold, Green Camo and Titanium Grey – and an outright purchase of the phone will set you back $794.99. The phone is fundamentally a Galaxy S7 that has been hardened to withstand drops and spills and packs a whopping 4000 mAh battery to keep you going all day long. Keep in mind though that we aren’t talking about a S7 in a case. The screen on the Active has been hardened as well to prevent it from breaking. If you need a truly rugged phone, this is a great option for you.
Internally, the Active has pretty much the same guts and glory of the regular S7. It is powered by the Snapdragon 820 processor, has 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a fingerprint scanner (on the
front) and has a 12MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. Given that the Galaxy S7 has been so popular because of its performance and style, at least on the performance, you are going to get the same benefits with the Galaxy S7 Active.
If you can’t or don’t want to throw nearly $800 at the phone today, you can use the AT&T Next payment plans to purchase the phone. The AT&T Next is a 30-month plan which makes the interest free payment of the phone $26.50 per month. The AT&T Next Every Year Plan is a 24 month plan that is $33.13 per month.
