Samsung Galaxy S® 5 Sport (Sprint), Cherry Red

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by This phone is the best Galaxy version I love my new Galaxy S5 Sport. Especially love the S Health app and use it everyday. I am amazed at the number of food items they have for tracking your calories. Definitely a must have for those looking to focus on getting healthy. Paired with the gear fit it is even better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yessssss Bought this phone about 4 months ago, and it still runs as fast and great as when I first got it. The screen is a perfect size, and the sport design makes it super durable. Takes amazing picture/video and overall just a great phone. Would definitely recommend! October 8, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by My S5 Sport Review I upgraded from a galaxy s3 and switched over from Verizon. I loved my s3, the only problem I had was the phone was that I went through two of them. One kicked the bucket and another had damage from myself. When I first received my s5 it it was working fine but when I did the software update the phone went haywire and would turn on and off on it's own. I read a lot different forums and tinkered with the phone to find out it was because I was using my s3's sd card and it wasn't formatted for the s5 or something so I transferred all my important files to my computer and then formatted it and now my the phone works just as how it should be. Plus, I was able to transfer all the music, photos, and contacts back onto the sd card without a problem. I went with the sport edition because it is more durable than the original s5. I dislike the color options (Blue, or red) and the fact this version isn't too popular yet so there aren't too many accessories. However it definitely feels a lot better in your hand compared to the regular version. The rubber back plate makes the phone feel very secure unlike the problems with AT&T's active version. The button on the active version is pointless due to the amount of customization you can do on the phone itself. I am bummed out that they removed the fingerprint scanner from this version but I would have never used it unless I was going to show it off haha. It's stupid how most of the new technology (not just from Samsung) is designed for active lifestyles. I mostly longboard and hike so I have to use the cycling mode for when I longboard but they do have a hiking mode which is nice. Even though I don't like how they went with the active lifestyle niche the quality of their S Health application is very nice. It might motivate me to exercise more. I mainly went with the s5 for two main reasons: water-resistant and the camera. Of course I had to try and see if it was water resistant. As soon I got the phone I dunked it in a cup of water and it worked fine. The problem with this is it only works with freshwater. The guy at the store told me it doesn't work with saltwater because it will decay the protective liner. I didn't plan on swimming with my phone but it would be nice to know it would be safe from the ocean. At least I don't have to worry about the rain destroying my phone again. The camera and video recording is really nice with all the different modes and the HDR and selective focus options. The camera is horrible in low light and works best with natural lighting. Like I mentioned before I love the customization you can do in the phone itself. Even though Google is very invasive I don't mind it and it makes my life easier and my phone seem very high tech. Samsung's apps are what really sold me on this. There music app Milk is like having Pandora One except without paying and it is far better. The battery is phenomenal and the two different power saving modes are fantastic. It is a lot better than the s3. I am very happy with my purchase I love Samsung because they are the most innovative and reliable. Other companies you pay for the name or their phones are junk. However, I am very upset that the US carriers disabled the download booster on the phones I was looking forward to that. That's not Samsung's fault though :) August 20, 2014
