AT&T now selling rugged Samsung Galaxy S5 Active

AT&T and Samsung on Friday announced the immediate availability of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active, a rugged take on the flagship smartphone experience. Much like the standard model, the S5 Active comes with a 5.1-inch FHD display, a 16-megapixel rear camera, and integrated heart rate monitor. Powered by Android 4.4 KitKat, the phone also boasts a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 4G LTE, and a host of Samsung software touches.

Designed to withstand all sorts of bumps and bruises, the phone is mil-spec 810G rated and can handle extreme temperatures, humidity, drops, and shock. And, yes, it’s also waterproof.

Samsung has added a “convenience key” to the side of the Galaxy S5 Active which launches all apps related to outdoor activity on one screen.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active retails for $200 with a two-year service agreement or can be purchased with AT&T Next; $27.50 on Next 18, $35.75 on Next 12.
