    Is there a difference between the S4 Active and the regular S4?

    I'm thinking of getting the S4 and was wondering whats the difference?

    I currently have the Droid X . :)

    Funny that the GSMArena review cites "no FM radio" as a disadvantage, when the S4 doesn't have one anyway?

    S2 and S3 had FM. In fact every phone I've had since my old Nokia 6200 had FM. I just got a bluetooth headset unit with an FM radio in it for use with my S4 so I still have that feature.

    FM transmitter was on the international version of the S3. The USA versions did not get it.

    Hey guys,

    I've moved you all over to the Device/Carrier Comparisons area for you.

    @Jayme, I've still got my original, launch day, DX and even though it's not my daily phone nowadays, I still use it everyday as a wi-fi device. Holds a special place in my heart and I believe a great phone. Good to see you've still got yours :).

    Cheers!
