Samsung Galaxy S5 to withstand the elements

Samsung Galaxy S5 to withstand the elements - read the full textRumors out of Korea indicate that base version of the next iteration of Samsung's Galaxy S flagship line, the Galaxy S5, will come with dust and water resistance. This is similar to the strategy incorporated by Sony in its flagship models like the Xperia Z1, and would be a logical move by Samsung...

I really did not like the S4. It has so many useless features and it drags. I am starting to really like LG and Sony. The phones are nice and they are really fast and there is no crappy touchwiz that slows the phone down.

Of all the reasons to hate Samsung, I think you picked the wrong one.

The S4active doesn't use a plug to waterproof its headphone-jack, but I think it still needs to cap the usb port and that kind of sucks. How many Sony owners have already ruined their rubber plugs? Nano-coating and an unbreakable screen (that still allows screen protectors so it doesn't get scuffed) would be fantastic.

Now if only android would make an update to give back all the features it took away; apps2SD, use device as external drive, option to turn Flash back on, quick controls, etc..you know, everything good about 2.2.

the idea of sealing a phone against water leakage is old , and certainly not invented by Sony. I could name you at least 6 companies that used to make these types of phones before you were born (for sure you are under 6).

I don't think they are copying Sony! This is we call STEALING the idea from the other! Samsung is really good at it. It's not surprise at all. They know that the future of smartphone will cover up by water resistant device, so they will bring it faster like they used to do with iPhone. I think if the future of smartphone is the water resistant device and Sony rules the smartphone world like Apple is doing today, I dint think it's a good idea to sue Samsung like Apple is doing today! Please Kill Samsung with your power Sony!

Whenever someone comes up with something another person would be like this other company did this first did this last. Grow up. This is how the industry works. You make something and if it's good people incorporate it in their products. It's not copying. there are such things are Copyrights. Stop acting like kids where oh Samsung made a plastic phone... but wait Apple did it first? grow up pls

I hope galaxy s5 will have aluminum case. So far Samsung was manufacturing cheap cases

What's with all the S5 Rumors already? I mean people just had the S4. Give them some time to enjoy their device instead of making them feel OLD already! Thank god we know that the S5 will probably look like the S4 and S3.

Every phone manufacturer ends up "copying" each other... Same with automobile manufacturers, watches, bikes, clothing... Well, basically, all that can be manufactured...

BUT they're among the 1st who did that for their VERY FLAGSHIP devices. Phone makers won't even bet to waterproof their flagship devices as they're afraid of ruining it.

This will only be the least bit interesting if Samsung opts for nanocoating waterproofing instead of the ol' rubber sealing. This lets all ports be exposed as well as leaving the battery easily interchangable. It's also something for the fanboys to flaunt.
