Samsung last year already tried to release a protected version of its flagship, and they, by the way, did it, so right after the release of the Galaxy S5, people began to wait for its protected version. So far, the smartphone is available exclusively for the AT&T operator in the United States.
The device is standard for Samsung smartphones:
Externally, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active looks like a worthy companion to Chuck Noriss, especially in the “camouflage”. The new color, most likely, is not to everyone’s liking, although it is fully consistent with the name.
The hardware of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is almost completely identical to that of the original model.
At your service:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor
- 5.1 inch Full HD Super AMOLED display
- 16MP 4K resolution camera
As a well-protected smartphone should be, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is protected according to the MIL-STD-810G standard. This means that your phone may be affected by salt, dust, humidity, rain, vibration and solar radiation. The level of protection against water remained at the level of the original Samsung Galaxy S5 - IPX7
Samsung turned out to be a wonderful and truly “active” smartphone, which at the same time has pretty good characteristics and some kind of design, however, most likely, the price will be overpriced in Russia again, which cannot please.
Of the minuses, one can only note the large size (but this is the problem of most "active" devices).
