Why the Galaxy Note 3 Active would be the greatest waterproof phone ever
I have always loved the thought of a waterproof phone and absolutely loved it when I had my iPhone waterproof in a Lifeproof case and now with my Xperia Z. Having a phone I don't have to worry about while giving my daughter a bath or playing in the sprinkler or being able to read news in the shower is just awesome. I never have to wipe off my hands while cooking or doing yard work before I handle my phone. The only annoyance with it is having the touch screen go a little wonky when wet.
A Galaxy Note 3 Active would be the best waterproof phone purely because of what the line is: a phone with a pen. If they put some Aqua mode in the software to turn off the capacitive touchscreen and only use the pen for input while around water, that would be amazing. You wouldn't lose any functionality of the touch screen if you implemented something so you could still zoom in and out with the pen and you wouldn't have to deal with water causing accidental screen presses sending you who knows where. The Galaxy Note 3 looks like a wonderful phone. A Galaxy Note 3 Active would be the best phone (if you want a waterproof phone with that size screen that is awesome for media and reading).
I know this phone would not be for everyone; a lot of people don't want a phone that size; a lot of people don't want/care about waterproof (think it is a gimmick); a lot of people refuse to touch Samsung with a ten foot pole. In the context of waterproof phones though, what do you guys think about a Galaxy Note 3 Active versus Sony's waterproof offerings or even the GS4 Active?
