Samsung’s tougher version of their Galaxy S4 model, the Galaxy S4 Active, has been available for a couple of weeks now from the major UK carriers. Consumers interested in getting the waterproof and dustproof device are able to do so but are tied to a two year contract. The good news is that the SIM-free version of the device is now available in the UK and should interest those who don’t want to be tied to a lengthy contract.

One of the main selling points of this device is that it is built to withstand the toughest environments. You can use it under the rain or in a dusty environment and it won’t get damaged. Its IP67 Rating means that you can submerge the device to a depth of one meter for as long as 30 minutes without damaging it. Its aqua mode allows you to use it underwater which makes it stand out from other waterproof devices.
The body of this device is a little larger than the regular S4 due to its toughened shell. It’s still sleek looking though and looks great.
