Smartphones tailor-made to tough it outWorried about water, dirt or scratches damaging your mobile device? In this Tech Minute, CNET's Sharon Profis has recommendations for durable phones.
[SOUND] The Sony Xperia Z5 is the newest water-resistant smartphone with a full high def display and a sharp 23 mega pixel camera. The Z5 has an IP of 68 waterproof rating. Which means it can be dunked underwater for up to 30 minutes. But we only suggest you do that if it's an accident. Motorola's Moto G is one of the cheapest water resistant Android phones out there. At just $179, the Moto G has a good camera and a nine and a half hour battery life. Finally, Samsung's flagship phone comes in a more durable version. The Samsung Galaxy S6 active is resistant to water, dust, and scuffs. It's a great choice for those with more adventurous lifestyles. The S6 active is made entirely of plastic so it's not as attractive as the all-metal phones. But if you're willing to trade design for durability it might just be the right choice.
