Hi Patrick,

The S6 is NOT water resistant or dust proof. from the current selection of Samsung phones, only the S5 Neo, S7, and S7 Edge are water resistant and dust proof

For the S6/Edge, their biggest weaknesses are the battery life is only average and the memory is non-expandable. They're maintaining a Samsung premium price too. Mathieu mentioned they are not water resistant so beware of that.

The S5 Neo is an affordable alternative to the S6/Edge since the processor is similar and maintains water/dust resistance + memory card capability, but it's limited by 2GB of RAM and the camera only does well in bright lit scenes - low light is pretty weak.

We all know the S7/Edge and upcoming Note 7 are the cream of the crop, but that includes the high price tag.

Do you prefer to only take Samsung/iPhone or would you look at some other suggestions?
