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

a different standard is needed

A more real world std is needed. A spec that would survive:
-Falls into chlorinated pool in jeans pocket, survives 7 sec swim out.
-Falls into toilet with typical chemicals, quick retrieval and dry.
-Slid off the edge of avg table height onto various floor surfaces; screen survives.
-Dropped from avg height of 4 year olds should blade.
-A left on dashboard in summer heat rating.
-Some static electricity tests.
-UV exposure tests
-Over heating tests with OEM battery installed.
Some useful tests.
