Jai and I got an advance look at the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active last month during a special event at Lincoln Square Mall. We were both impressed with its durability features, and it quickly became Jai’s primary phone. Click here to watch our unboxing video!
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is the perfect phone for summer adventures. Jai and I have been on the road a ton this past month, driving all across Oregon and Washington for work events, family weddings, trips to the airport, and visiting friends. During all this, we also went camping, staying overnight at Skull Creek Campground. This was my first-ever camping trip and it was a big success!
Although there is no cell reception at this remote campground – which was part of the appeal! – the S7 Active still came in very handy for recording memories. Before we left, we walked down to a little creek and basked in the quiet beauty. The camera on the S7 Active takes such gorgeous photos, I feel like I’m back there when I look at them:
You can also use the S7 Active to take Google Cardboard Camera VR panoramas – here is a panorama of Cow Creek, exported from Google Cardboard camera:
While we were at the creek, Jai showed me how you can catch Crayfish by turning over rocks, and when the first rock he turned over caused a Crayfish to scuttle away, he plunged the phone underwater in order to record a video. Yes, that’s right, the S7 Active is waterproof!
And the underwater video is impressively crisp – look how fantastic that video turned out:
You also have a variety of options for capturing video footage, including recording videos in slo-mow:
This was a big hit later on when we visited a friend, and her kids had a great time dancing around and watching the videos back in slow motion!
Even if you’re not into the great outdoors, having a waterproof phone is just smart. Jai does tech repair, and just last summer, he tried to save Jessie’s phone after a drink got spilled into her purse and fried it. If she had an S7 Active, it wouldn’t have hurt anything! Parents, take note – this phone is water AND shatter resistant. Jai likes to work on a lot of projects – he’s very handy, and can do everything from construction projects around the house to building furniture. And since he loves tech and always has a device (or two) on hand, it’s fantastic for him to have something so durable. He’s already taken this along with him while working on a roof and using tar, so suffice to say, this phone can deal with a lot!
In addition to the durability and great camera, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active has a lot of other cool features, like the ability to unlock the phone using a fingerprint sensor, and how bright and visible the screen remains, even while outside in bright light – another thing that makes it perfect for active people. We highly recommend it!
