The Galaxy S4 Active hasn't officially been announced by Samsung but details of its existence have been leaked over the past few weeks.

The device appears to be a rugged version of the Galaxy S4 with "dustproof covers and a rugged exterior", according to the video. The phone featured in the video was apparently supplied by "a source who got his hands on the device overseas".

The Galaxy S4 Active appears to be using the GT-I9295 model number. It has a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus (MSM8960) processor and an 8-megapixel camera, the only major specification changes from the regular Galaxy S4.

According to the leak, the Galaxy S4 Active features all the functions found on the standard Galaxy S4 in a case that is dust and water resistant.

The video doesn't reveal much of the phone, only showing the "About" screen in the settings menu. The shape of the handset looks almost identical to the regular Galaxy S4, though the menu, home and back keys below the screen appear to be physical buttons rather than the capacitive, touch-sensitive keys of the regular model.

The video of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active can be seen below.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
