Default Should I wait on the active or is there a case?

Hello,

I'm transitioning from using Blackberries and BB10 hasn't done enough to impress me to go with them. To be truthful, I've waited around for months on the Q10 to release. It's the perfect size and I'm not used to a virtual keyboard. Anyway, after shopping around, I'm 100% sold on the SGS4. The HTC One almost had me but lack of SD card just won't do. Apps are huge these days and the 64gb version would be the only way.

Okay, with that being said, the Active version looks a.w.e.s.o.m.e. I'm pretty much phone-less at the moment and am ancy to get something, lol. Should I hold out for a couple more months on the Active, or is there a comparable case to protect the S4?

I'm also wondering if anyone knows if the Active is less filled with bloatware. There's a lot of software on the S4 that I have no use for. I know the camera on the Active is only an 8mp camera, so I wondered if they're also stripping some of the software. The stock Android phone would be my number one choice, but with a phone upgrade available, I don't see any reason to drop $650.00.

Thanks in advance.

This is almost enough to make me not get a Note 2 and get an S3/4 instead-

The Active is pretty much the same ad the regular S4.
