We love YouTubers who smash devices for the sake of science. We love them because they do what we don’t ever, ever, ever, ever want to do ourselves. We also love them because it’s fun to watch an extremely premium device get smashed to bits in the most ridiculous fashion ever.
If you share our sentiment then good news! UnboxTherapy just dropped a new video where he uses the Samsung Galaxy S6 active (which we know is one tough device) as a hockey puck. If you can’t tell, our noses are wrinkled with excitement now.
In case you don’t already know, the Samsung Galaxy S6 active sports a 5.1″ quad-HD Super AMOLED display (1440×2560 pixels). On the inside, the device is powered by an Exynos 7420 octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2.1GHz and four at 1.5GHz paired with a 3GB of RAM and a choice of 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. The camera unit is a 16-megapixel/5-megapixel front/rear combo and the entire device is wrapped up in a super-rugged shell.
Designed to be a super rugged version of the Galaxy S6, the device is IP68 dust and water-resistant up to 1.5 metres and 30 minutes. It’s also MIL-STD-810G certified salt, dust, humidity, rain, vibration, solar radiation, transport, and thermal shock resistant. Yup, that means it has a military certification for being able to take a beating.
All credit to the device, it really can take a beating. Unfortunately, the Galaxy S6 active isn’t available in Malaysia in case you were thinking of getting one to have a go at it on Sunway’s ice rink. That said, we would really like it if Samsung Malaysia brings one over for us to have a spot if sepak takraw with. Pretty please?
