AT&T's ad for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active shows the phone going through a
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active is an AT&T exclusive in the U.S. Because the Samsung Galaxy S6 removed the IP67 certification that the Samsung Galaxy S5 had, those seeking protection from dust and water on the latest version of the Galaxy S line will be forced to turn to the Galaxy S6 Active.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active has an IP68 certification which allows it to be submerged in up to 4.92 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes and emerge unscathed. It also can be dropped from a distance of 4 feet or less and still live to tell the tale. According to AT&T, the device can withstand dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, humidity, and high altitude.

While most of the specs match those on the regular version of the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Active has a plastic body instead of a metal one. It also features a battery that at 3500mAh, has a much higher capacity than the 2550mAh cell found on the regular model.

To promote the phone, AT&T has produced a commercial that shows the (made up) "life simulator" used to test how well the Galaxy S6 Active is protected from all of the little problems that other handsets would succumb to. It's a cute spot that might produce from you a chuckle or guffaw.

It's actually rated at ip 69 because there is no need for the flaps

S5 mini didn't have a cover. Also, this is an IP68 phone.

I would have traded my iPhone 5S in immediately if there was a 128GB version of this phone. I am super disappointed that 32GB is the only storage option. I am using 53GB of my 64GB iPhone 5S.

Yup, 32gb storage with no expandable option is an instant deal breaker for me. I need at least 64gb, preferably 128.

Wow can't believe I missed that. Just goes to show that carrier exclusivity, and limited storage can make a phone DOA.

The lack of microSD or more internal storage is a major fail. I can understand only offering one storage option with this phone since it's a niche device, but either give people a microSD slot or bump it to 64GB. Charge more if necessary; the people that want the benefits of a "rugged" device will pay it. I have a feeling that the S7 line won't be making this mistake again. There's going to be too much backlash for them to ignore, and they're not Apple with the same blindly loyal fandbase to suckle at their teat. Samsung loyalists will jump ship to LG or whomever else. If Samsung does this same crap with the Note 5, they're not just shooting themselves in the foot, they're blasting both off with shotguns, then dipping the stumps in Nichole Richey and Paris Hilton's cooches to get them as infected and gangrenous as possible.
