The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active can reportedly be submerged in water, it's dust resistant and can handle spills.

The phone also has gorilla glass and can take pictures underwater.

But according to USA Today, the phone may not be all it's cracked up to be.

A special report on the phone found that after being submerged in water, the phone screen went black and showed some signs of water damage.
