You can (almost) use the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active as a hockey puck

If you're wondering just how resistant the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active really is, the fellows from Unbox Therapy have just posted the results of a unique drop test. Essentially, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active was used, for extended lengths of time, as a hockey puck. First, the hockey teams warmed themselves by passing the puck Samsung Galaxy S6 round, then used it for some one-on-one situations, proceeded to shoot the phone in full force, and then used it for a de-facto hockey puck during a short scrimmage.
As you can notice, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active behaved beautifully in these extreme environment, managing to survive both the passing and the shooting test. Sure, the handset did get destroyed during the full-blown scrimmage, but that's to be expected from any fine electronics device no matter how rugged.
What do you guys make of this test? Did you expect the handset to escape fatal damage for as long as it did?

I would have that phone right now if they had it on T-Mobile. 64gb for me. It's a little ugly but I prefer function over form. They thing has a great processor, really good battery life and a great screen. Plus it's rugged.

just get it unlock...unlock codes on ebay for only a few bucks, they just added the 64GB to the line up $100 more...i would say $50 more for 64GB and a $100 option for 128GB or just add a damn SD slot and keep it at 32GB or even 16GB
