Samsung's Galaxy S5 Active is available for $199 on contract from AT&T

Samsung announced its Galaxy S5 back in February to much fanfare. The smartphone comes packed with a 5.1” 1080p display, quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, and a 16MP rear-camera. Quite unexpectedly, the smartphone also came with a water- and dust-proof resistant (IP67 rating).
 
Today, Samsung is expanding the “survivability” of its flagship smartphone with the Galaxy S5 Active. The Galaxy S5 Active is the follow-up to the Galaxy S4 Active that was launched in June 2013.
 
The Galaxy S5 Active carries over all of the functionality of the standard Galaxy S5, but includes a rugged, shock-resistant case. The Galaxy S5 Active does, however, do away with the capacitive front-facing controls to make way for physical buttons.
 
The Galaxy S5 Active is available in Titanium Gray, Camo Green, and Ruby Red. It’s available right now from AT&T at a price of $199 on contract.

I could swim 9 feet underwater with IP68 and stay there for hours.


Do you actually do that though? How many people with smartphones are divers?

9 feet is not deep enough for divers. It would be useful for snorkeling or swimming for longer than 30 minutes. I usually just buy a waterproof camera but this would be so much better.

Not sure if you know this... But water and capacitive screens don't work together.
