How rugged is the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active? Check out this great article at CNET about the durability of the new S5 Active

Samsung Galaxy S5 Active: Ruggedized phone at the top of its class?

Just like last year, Samsung has teamed up with AT&T to release the ruggedized version of its flagship phone. The Galaxy S5 Active makes certain durability promises in its name and design compared to the original Samsung Galaxy S5, while also keeping the same high-end specs.

The question on my mind is: just how rugged is it? Like last year's Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, this year's S5 Active sports raised physical buttons beneath the screen, and rubberized handholds along the bottom and top. There's a convenience key, too, that will call up certain outdoors-related apps, as well as the camera.
