Samsung Galaxy S5 Active now available on AT&T

Samsung’s Galaxy S5 Active has finally gone official on AT&T. The phone is the same one we had seen in the leaks and is now available up for purchase in the United States from AT&T stores (online and brick-and-mortar). The design of the Galaxy S5 is slightly different with a more rugged feel than the original Galaxy S5 and is rated with IP67 for water and dust resistance and US Mil-STD 810G specification for shock, temperature, humidity, rain and altitude.

Samsung has decided to let go off the fingerprint scanner found on the Galaxy S5 and instead integrates a convenience key for Activity Zone that gives access to some features like compass, barometer, stopwatch and flash light. Internally, we’re looking at the same Galaxy S5 with Snapdragon 801 2.5 GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 5.1-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, 16 megapixel camera, 16GB memory with microSD card slot, 2800mAh battery and heart rate sensor.

The phone sells for $199.99 on two-year contract in Camo Green, Ruby Red and Titanium Gray colours.

still not as resistant. if this is a more rugged which they said is shockproof, then why not make it IP 68? Even Xperia ZR with removable battery is IP 58. This sucks, as well as the design.


Funny enough, this one looks MORE interesting than the main S5 🙂

1) No fingerprint sensor!
2) Possible OIS stabilization
3) Dedicated “camera” key that can be bound to other function
4) Probably more resistant to drops, tho I would be careful with saying that, especially when it come to screen, I’d wait for the drop tests 😉

All good news 🙂

Saying all that, it isn’t the prettiest around, but it sure should do its job. Thumbs up Samsung!


Samsung didn’t announce it yet?
