No.Because the active has buttons that need pushed in at the bottom of the phone and the s4 is touch.

answer 3
It will fit but, the buttons will not line up. The Active has 3 buttons on the bottom front and the other does not. You must get a case designed for the Active.

They make a case for the S4 Active. Buy that one and you can be assured it fits. Not sure if the S4 case fits the active properly.

Negative. The S4 active is a touch bigger and has the three physical buttons on the bottom which the S4 OBDef. will not accomodate.

answer 6
No, they are different. You must ask for the Active specifically. The hard case that the phone slips into has different button positions for the Active vs the regular. Also, the belt clip portion is "deeper" for the Active version as well. So, the different versions are not interchangable either.

No unfortunately it will not. I just tried it the other day lol. The S4 Active Defender is just a touch to bulky to fit into the S4 defender holster.

answer 4
There are notches on the side of the plastic that appear to be designed for a small screwdriver to pry them open, but you should be able to pull them outwards with a fingernail. You may need to release the notches on multiple sides before the plastic separates into two parts.

answer 5
Once you remove the silicone, there are small tabs all the way around the hard case. I use a finger nail to push down the tab while i gently pull the two sides apart. There are 6 tabs total and if you look on the back side, there are arrows that indicate where the tabs are.
