Shock-resistant Galaxy S5 Active ships with side convenience key

AT&T has launched the rumored Active variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 on its network. Taking after the Galaxy S4 Active, the Galaxy S5 Active combines the internals of the Galaxy S5 with a ruggedized body, allowing it to add the US MiL-STD 810G rating for shock, temperature, and altitude to the smartphone's existing IP67-level water and dust-proofing.
