We've been asked by the team at Samsung to find 20 (v lucky) MNers to try out its latest handset - the Galaxy S4 Active and to add feedback on Mumsnet.

Samsung says "We think this new handset would be great for parents. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is specifically designed to handle all aspects of modern family life - including

~ the great outdoors - with a fully sealed design that provides great protection from dust and water - you can even use the device to shoot photos and video underwater, with your results optimised by the new Aqua Mode.

~ everyday family life - we'd love you to report back on how the handset withstands your general day to day life with a child we'll be asking testers to 'allow' it to be dropped on the floor, 'eaten' by your LOs, and even 'accidentally' dropped in the bath/ (clean) loo to demonstrate how well it copes with modern family life.

~ looks and functionality - the Galaxy S4 Active also shares the Galaxy S4s slick design and useful smart services, so you can enjoy the same great style and convenience"

Full tech spec here

This new handset will be supplied unlocked for use on any network (just insert your sim) - the costs of calls/ texts/ data must be borne by testers. The handset retails for c£400 grin.

If you're selected to take part you'll be asked to try out the handset (including some challenges!) and to add feedback at least twice on Mumsnet - we'll be looking for first impressions as well as some follow up feedback after a couple of weeks.

We'll also need you to add a review to the MN smartphones review pages
and on the Samsung pages

If you'd like to take part and can commit to adding feedback as above please add your details here

We'll be in touch with those selected asap

thanks and good luck

Wonder if the phone is as good as they say it is?

I've entered. 8 month old DS2 likes to chew on my phone when his teeth are playing up, I'm sure he'd love the chance to put teeth marks in a shiny new phone.

Completed ... Fingers crossed ! In desperate for a new phone , my old Nokia is dying the slow phone death of intermittent sound and and randomly shutting down . I've never won anything ever , a wee trial of a fancy new Samsung would be a lovely surprise . smile

Good luck everyone !

Wow, I can take it with me when I go cycling, DS might take it canoeing, I could pin it to the dog's collar for fun - pick me!

I'm currently looking at the S4 mini, but am intrigued by the survivor aspects of this device!

BerstieSpotts Fri 25-Oct-13 18:59:35

I decided to apply anyway, with a disclaimer about being abroad. We have luffly mountains and lakes here for me to drop it down!

JessePinkmansWitch Fri 25-Oct-13 19:01:03
