The Active and the S5 both have the same IP67 certification for water ingress protection. so NO the Active is not any better under water. And in the case of the OP he just got back lock and was not sure that the back cover was completely close. I have use my S5 on the pool several times to take videos and pictures without issues, you just need to be sure of the usb flap and back case been secured.

How do you pay $3 Lucky? AT&T charges $7.

I just remember a rep asking if I wanted insure for 3 bucks. Once I got my paperwork it was higher. I asked why. They told me about an additional insurance fee. I didn't need it. Took it off and it's 3 bucks again. Don't remember what it was but I didn't want it. Srry
