You've invested in a phone; your life in your pocket. Then disaster strikes. It falls into the sink or toilet, beer is knocked over at the bar -- or, if you’re really unlucky, your kids decide it’s a great idea to plant your phone in the garden. Thankfully, with IP67 certification, the Galaxy S5 provides ingress protection against dust and water to a maximum of 1 metre for up to 30 minutes.
When things go wrong, the GS5 will help you stay up-and-running in situations that might kill some devices. It's designed for the Australian lifestyle. The beach. The bar. The BBQ... stress less about dirty hands while trying to read that marinade recipe. If your phone gets dirty, simply gently wash it clean. You'll need to make sure the back cover and USB port are correctly sealed, and it's not intended you actually go swimming with your Galaxy S5 -- but it will be resistant to your everyday life.
An IP (Ingress Protection) rating is an international standard that shows you the level of ingress protection of your device. As mentioned, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has been been certified to an IP67 Rating which means it's resistant against water ingress to a maximum of 1 metre of water for up to 30 minutes, as well as resistant against dust ingress.
