Galaxy S6 Sport

Will Sprint be getting this?

 

ATT just announced the Galaxy S6 Active which is close relation to the sport... One huge difference between the regular s6 and the Active is the battery size. The active has a much larger 3500 mah battery compared to the S6 2550 mah.

As of now, we don't know. I'm not sure how the S5 Active sold and if it'll be worth releasing a 6 version of it. Only time will tell.

The S5 Active offered very little in practical terms over the S5, with the S5 already having water and dustproof design and the ability to add a case giving more drop protection.

 

The S6 Active on the other hand is what I had hoped the S6 would be, and brings back most of the features that kept me from upgrading.

 

I hope Sprint will get it.

The Active is out on AT&T now and the reviews are good.

 

But still no SD or removable battery

It is aggravating that Samsung held that as an AT&T exclusive. Lots of people on the other carriers would buy that instead of the GS6. I hope Samsung is happy with whatever payola they took from AT&T. [emoji107]

Samsung I bet would have sold even more if they opted to include a 3500MAh battery with their flagship.  I know I would have bought it as that was the only factor keeping me from pulling the trigger.  I currently have the S6 Active and the battery performance on it is great!  I just really wish it wasn't an AT&T exclusive.

Samsung loves to make very short-sighted decissions

    • Interesting, T-Mobile is demolishing a Sprint B25-only site that even Sprint wasn't using anymore. Sprint moved from that pole to a former Clearwire site on a nearby much taller mast but never demolished this original site. Up through 2021, there was still power to this site. Some time during COVID, the lights on the RRUs were no longer lit.  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/ENR24-01067/Kirkland Streetview 
    • I noticed that on my Boost line. I ended up mapping some 2G on Cellmapper because of that lol. Looked like it would connect to T-Mobile 2G for a bit and then disconnect and show no signal. Thankfully it's back up and running.
    • Outside expert explanations of AT&T outage: https://www.lightreading.com/mobile-core/at-t-s-outage-twists-up-its-mwc-story
    • Service just restored in Columbus Ohio on AT&T network.  They seemed to do it in the following order: business (done early) then 5g hours later then ADSL and 4g about 4 hours after business. Then texting and wifi calling that was not setup before. At one point they were trying to route calls on T-Mobile 2g, but that failed.
    • Nationwide AT&T outage occurring right now affecting all of their brands, MVNOs, and even FirstNet. Although this kind of outage is rare, I bet Verizon and T-Mobile are both gonna try to use this to pull First Responders to their network or at least consider them for backup services. https://www.theverge.com/2024/2/22/24079910/att-network-outage-sos-mode
