Samsung Galaxy S6 Active survives multiple slap shots

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active is aimed at being a more rugged alternative to the normal Galaxy S6 for people with more rugged lives. However, just how strong is it? YouTube channel, Unbox Therapy, has decided to test just that by taking it out to a hockey arena and using it as the puck.
