    My S8 Active (got new) is working just fine. It has yet to cause me any consternation. The battery is the original and it still holds a few days charge just sitting there. I don't know any other phone, old or new that is as sturdy as the Active. Is there any reason I need to look at a newer phone?

    How's yer Active doing?

    Hi @antzrus. I never got into the Active line, I'm pretty sedentary. I do do 6000 steps on workdays but who doesn't?

    If your current phone does everything you need there is no need to upgrade.

    if it works for you, then there is no need to look for a new phone. just keep in mind that most phones have a shelf life of about 3-4 years. just be prepared that as time goes on the app developers will move on to support the newer android software. also the battery life will also continue to degrade so at some point your battery life will start to go downhill.
