    Samsung G890A reviews

    Galaxy S6 Active SM-G890A 32GB AT&T Branded Smartphone (Unlocked, Gray) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone! This is a powerful device with lots of memory. Pros: Fast, large internal memory, excellent battery life, tough outer shell, large bright display, easily plays videos & games. Quickly syncs with my wifi and Ford mytouch systems. Nice camera, lots of other features & pre-installed apps, 1/2 the price of an S7 and it hasn't exploded yet. Cons: No removable memory card, can't change out the battery, although its an unlocked phone it is AT&T branded and can only be used with AT&T service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from S6 Active.Great Phone.B&H.Great People I first ordered this phone from another vendor.I received the phone and it didn't work.After calling and emailing them for a few days I finally got a response.They waltzed me around for a few more days and about two weeks after I had received the broken phone they sent me a return label.I sent the phone back and the same day ordered one from B&H.I got my brand new Galaxy S6 Active before the other guys even acknowledged they had received the returned phone even though they are near me and B&H is about twelve hundred miles away.The people at B&H are pros.They answered every question and concern this gun shy internet consumer had with patients and concern and even a little humor.The phone is just as advertised,new,unlocked and in perfect working order.B&H has earned my business.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy a phone from here anytime! Why pay 800.00 for a new Galaxy s7 active when I can get a new s6 active at B+H Photo for less than half that! The phone is awesome!
