Each end of Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is covered with rubber, which saves the phone from any scratches.

The important part of the S4 Active is it’s textured. The rear cover of the phone has an interesting finishing with metallic honeycomb that makes the look of the phone tougher, but it’s just soft and smooth plastic. The name of the phone says that it will survive knocks and bumps but actually the durability is same as other smartphones. Rather Samsung Galaxy S4 Active has a Gorilla Glass 2 screen layer but in S4, the screen is Gorilla Glass 3, which is stronger compared to Gorilla Glass 2. And also the top and bottom edges are made of rubber but in reality, they are not actual rubber.

One rubber seal is placed over the battery cover and creates a barrier between the outside world and the important elements in the phone such as a battery, SIM slot, and other electrical points. The other rubber seal is placed at the bottom edge of the plastic flaps to protect the micro USB port.
