AT&T today announced the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active, a semi-rugged version of Samsung's flagship smartphone. It carries over most features of the standard model, such as the 5.1-inch quad HD display, 16-megapixel camera, and Exynos processor. The phone has an IP68 rating for protection against water and dust. The battery had been enlarged to 3,500mAh, and the S6 Active has activity shortcuts, such as to the flashlight. The phone will be available June 12 for $199.99 with a two-contract or through AT&T next plans. The Next 24 plan costs $23.17 for 30 payments; the Next 18 plan costs $28.96 for 24 payments; and the Next 12 plan costs $34.75 for 20 payments.

I have to disagree, batteries typically do not last 2 years in my experience. I also like to shop for extended batteries in order to use my phone for more than a day. As nice as the back of the GS6 is aesthetically, it's also a liability (iPhone 4 & 4...

It's posts like yours that concern me.
