A sight that would lead to much swearing with most phones, but the S4 Active looks quite at home underwater. I have to say I was impressed.

Samsung was keen to stress that the phone is not designed to be used underwater – though the touchscreen does actually respond in very shallow water – rather it’s designed to survive an accidental immersion and to allow you to take snorkel-style photos where you hold the phone just beneath the surface to take an underwater photo.

If the touchscreen isn’t responsive when you bring it back out of the water, don’t panic – it gets confused by water drops on the screen, so just wipe it dry and all is well.
