Samsung Galaxy S5 Active review: Combat ready

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is everything we expected it to be and more. In terms of functionality and feature set, the handset is almost every bit as capable as the SM-G900 with the added benefit of higher durability and improved grip. The aforementioned two could very well make the model the pick in the Galaxy S5 range.

The traditional strengths of the Samsung Galaxy S family are all here. read more →

  • 16GB of built-in storage, expandable via the microSD card slot
  • Heart-rate monitor
  • IR gesture sensor for Air gestures
  • Barometer, showing the elevation and air pressure
  • Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic
  • No OIS in the camera
  • No fingerprint sensor (Galaxy S5 has it)
  • No microUSB 3.0 (Galaxy S5 has it)
  • Rear-mounted mono speaker
  • Poor video codec support out of box

Samsung Galaxy S5 Active Review

One has to give Samsung credit with the Galaxy S5 Active, seeing as though it looks like they’ve been able to learn from last years’ model. However, some folks might still be scratching their heads wondering why come out with this phone knowing that the Galaxy S5 is already water-resistant. Well people, this phone adheres most to individuals with a more active lifestyle, but best of all, it doesn’t make a whole lot of compromises with its hardware, specs, features, and price.

By itself, the Galaxy S5 Active is a top-notch smartphone that has nearly all of the bells and whistles of its highly esteemed cousin – albeit, its advantage is seen in its ruggedized construction. read more →

  • Tougher construction so it’s not as brittle as the Galaxy S5.
  • Most of the specs and features have been left intact.
  • Activity Zone is great for the outdoorsy folks.
  • Similar overall performance to the Galaxy S5.
  • Slippery feel in the hand
  • Design language isn’t as pleasant
  • Low lighting camera performance is underwhelming

Samsung Galaxy S5 Active review: Style and substance, but sportiness is so-so

The Galaxy S5 Active occupies a weird in-between place. As far as durable phones go, its reinforced corners rate better than average -- the S5 Active was ding-free after a few drops and after I wedged it into some rough tree branches -- but its slippery backing and lack of grippy material are a letdown in the ruggedness department.

As a phone for sports-minded folks, the convenience key that calls up the compass, barometer, and shortcuts to other apps is useful, but not essential. read more →

  • The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active has a sturdy build.
  • Excellent physical controls, and a convenience key that double as a camera shutter.
  • Inside, it has the same top-tier specs as the Galaxy S5.
  • It lacks a fingerprint scanner.
  • It's slippery, and apart from its tougher aesthetic..
  • The S5 Active isn't much tougher or athletically-minded than other dust- and water-resistant smartphones.
