AlgaeRancher: T-1000?Does it put a metal spike though your ear if you fail to pay your bill on time?
steamingpile: drop proof
steamingpile: Ehhhh with the Samsung S5 being virtually waterproof and drop proof from accidents this means nothing.

gingerjet: ampoliros: Speaking of Apple innovation, a friend of mine of FB was all excited that NFC might be coming to the next iphone...Its been a year since the release of the last iPhone that absolutely had to have NFC otherwise Apple would be bankrupt by now. And yet didn't happen. I doubt it will happen with the 6 - especially with Apple's continued investments in BT LE.
RoxtarRyan: steamingpile: drop proofNo, it isn't rated for impacts. It is IP67 certificated for 1M deep for 30 seconds, and with many other ruggedized phones, that is only good as long as you have the little USB cover plugged in. That case will still likely crack/chip like any other.There are not many ruggedized smartphones in the market. The Casio Commando (extremely durable... I've tested it, and it protects as advertised) and the Motorola Defy come to mind. Those are the only two that I know of that are rated for water/dust and impact.
vharshyde: Translation: We know customers want Metal, but we want to make things cheaper so we can make more money, so we'll give them cheap, flimsy plasticky metal instead.
