Review: Samsung Galaxy S5 Active for AT&T

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  3  

As far as I am concerned, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is better than the standard model. It's a bit thicker and heavier, but the added protection from drops and more-appealing design are worth that small sacrifice. The only major feature missing is the GS5's fingerprint reader, which I found to be inconsistent and ultimately useless anyway.

The Active is tough, water resistant, and good looking. The screen is fantastic, phone calls sound great, mobile data is speedy, and it takes great pictures. Few other phones offer the same mix of features and performance. The phone may be over-stuffed with apps, but that's a problem shared by all Samsung devices.

The Galaxy S5 Active is a better competitor with the HTC One and LG G3, and is worth considering if you're an active person who values its innate strengths.
