Samsung Galaxy S6 Active
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active is a more rugged version of the Samsung Galaxy S6 that can handle gong underwater for 30 minutes at five feet, which is more than enough to cover accidental exposure and to allow you to take it into the pool or to the beach.
Samsung also includes a rugged design that can withstand drops thanks to a military-grade IP68 rating for dust, shock, heat, humidity and vibrations. In short, this is a waterproof smartphone that can handle much more than just a splash.
While many waterproof smartphones feature cut down features, the Galaxy S6 Active includes a 5.1-inch Quad HD display, fast processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage. There is a 16MP rear camera and 5MP front facing camera plus it runs Android Lollipop.
Physical buttons help with use when fingers are wet and a massive battery keeps this phone going and going. Read more about why we like the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active.
