Samsung Galaxy S8 Active review: The phone for anyone who hates cases
For the last five years, smartphone design has trended towards one inevitable conclusion: the perfect glass black rectangle. Screen is everything these days, with any other concern — physical buttons, practicality, or the ability to withstand everyday life — pushed to the side.
It’s good for most people, who take their phone from nightstand to car to desk back to nightstand every day. But if you’re a little rougher on your devices, you probably remember the days of the Nokia 3310 Brick Edition with a fondness that’s unusual for a lump of plastic. There is good news, however: in its quest to build the ultimate phone for everybody, I think Samsung’s accidentally created the perfect device for everyday use.
