Rated 5 out of 5 by The only replacement to my Samsung SYNC Whether you're looking for powerful performance, extreme durability, or superb battery life, this phone has it all. When this phone is powered on or needs to reboot, it happens fast. If I need to open up an application in a hurry, it's open nearly as fast as my fingers can navigate to it. Whenever I get my phone dirty, I can take it to the sink to clean it off. I incidentally spilled an entire bottle of iced tea on my phone and did not get to cleaning it off immediately, causing it to become sticky. A quick trip to the sink with some soapy water had the buttons and phone as good as new. I can also talk on this phone whether I am in snow or rain without any issues. As for battery life, this device gets me five to six days on average, without any of the built-in powersaving settings. I use the device heavily on wireless internet as opposed to 4G LTE data, so it does see significant savings as opposed to roughly two to three days using exclusively the mobile data. Without either, I have seen about twelve days of battery life while still accepting phone calls and playing games. As a side note, I used a Samsung SYNC about eight years ago and have never been sold on a smartphone until I got my S5 Active. I have had about half a dozen smartphones through various brands, though each of them has always let me down. However, the S5 Active has been through rain, water, and hard drops on pavement, and yet it keeps on delivering the same amazing reliability and performance it had from the day I took it out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it Extremely durable, I accidentally dropped it about 10 feet on to concrete and all it did was bounce. Not a scratch! January 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great features Features are great however it's a little more than thought it would be to learn how to navigate. January 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Solid and I think Best Phone out there! I am surprised not many people know this phone. I think it should of been marketed better. I upgraded from a Galaxy SIII ( which is still working perfectly after 2 1/2 years), to the Galaxy SV Active. I chose the Active because I like the rugged features, as I think it will be better protected and it feels stronger. I have dropped it a couple times, 2 days after getting it, I was in a water park, it performs flawless. I think anyone who is into outdoor activities, would like this phone. January 1, 2015
