Recently the world was exposed to the new Samsung S5 which is a truly awesome piece of electronic equipment. The Galaxy S5, is one of the leading Smartphone’s with features and benefits that make daily living easier and more interactive. One of the device’s headline features was dust and water resistance.

This adaptation was not a new innovation. In fact, almost a year prior, it announced the dust and water resistant S4 Active. But by bringing these features from a secondary device to its flagship, it appeared Samsung was following in the footsteps of rival Sony in making weather proofing a standard feature. One would also think that with a weather-proof S5 an S5 Active wouldn’t be necessary. But Samsung is determined to add yet another phone to its powerful and extensive Smartphone lineup.

Samsung, the Korea-based Smartphone giant quietly released the Galaxy S5 Active in the United States. The Smartphone is an update to the 2013’s S4 Active and retains most of the same features as the new S5, but with a more of a rugged and shock resistant case.  Like the S5, the S5 Active has the same 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 2800mAh battery. It also has the same 16 megapixel camera that can shoot 4K video and with the same Focus Select feature, but without the ultra-fast Contrast Detection Autofocus that was a headline feature on the S5. The S5 Active has the S5’s built-in heart rate monitor but not its fingerprint scanner. The changes to the phone are quite minimal and essentially none are based on ergonomic or anatomical aspects.

The Active S5 is clearly geared for outdoors and is accentuated by the Unique convenience key” located on the left hand side of the device above the volume rocker. When pressed, the dedicated button will launch Samsung Activity Zone, an app which contains a compass, stopwatch, and flashlight. Currently the brilliant phone is only available through the AT&T brick and mortar stores.

  1. Samsung has become the choice of most people nowadays. In fact my family uses mostly Samsung phones. While others had their jaws dropped at the latest iPhones, I couldn’t be as excited. I like Samsung better.
