Dust and Water Resistant
Take on the Elements
Dustproof and water-resistant, the Galaxy S5 Active™ has a rugged design that’s engineered for outdoor activities.** Run in the rain, camp in the desert, dig in your garden—all with your phone by your side. It even has a unique mode that instantly launches adventure-related features, like compasses and maps, conveniently onto one screen.
Whether you’re out in the sun or travelling by train, the 5.1" display will automatically adjust brightness and contrast levels to keep whatever you’re looking at vibrant, clear and rich with color.
One Camera For Every Adventure
Balance color and light in real time, using the HDR feature, or create more depth by selecting which elements to focus and blur. This powerful, yet easy-to-use 16-megapixel camera takes vivid photos and videos, while a complete editing suite helps enhance everything you shoot.
Your Personal Health Powerhouse
The Galaxy S 5 Active features the first-ever built-in heart rate monitor, and together with the S Health™ app, it makes tracking your health and fitness goals a lot easier. You can also use S Health to get on-demand nutritional information and the built-in pedometer helps track your steps and calories burned.✝
