I'd take the S4 same as I did this past summer when I had the choice. The S4 Active is water-resistant, not waterproof, and part of its water resistance is attributable to the rubber plug blocking the charging port. I think it would be a real nuisance unplugging/replugging it every time I charged the phone. Plus, the S4 Active is thicker and has poorer camera specs. OTOH, if the physical buttons and water resistance matter to you enough to overlook those shortcomings, maybe consider it.
