Towards the tail-end of 2015 we’ve seen both Motorola and LG introduce highly ruggedized devices that have seen a great deal of positive praise. Yes, we’re talking about Moto’s Droid Turbo 2 and LG’s V10. Both handsets are more than capable of taking a great beating, and both companies are heavily marketing this durability. But let’s not forget about Samsung.

During the summer months, AT&T and Samsung formally unveiled the Galaxy S6 Active, bringing many of the same things we liked about the Galaxy S6 but adding an increased level of durability to the mix. Recently, AT&T even started selling a 64GB storage variant as a reminder that the Active is still here, despite increasing competition in the ultra-rugged space. So how durable is the Galaxy S6 Active? A new video from Unboxing Therapy aims to find out by putting the phone to the ultimate test: using it as a hockey puck.

While we won’t ruin the whole video for you, needless to say, the Galaxy S6 Active stands up admirably to the beating and it is clear that Samsung did well in creating a variant of the Galaxy S6 that can handle more than just your average daily use. Be sure to check the vid out for yourself, embedded above.
