Display and Design
 
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport poses a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display which guarantees razor sharp visibility with the full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The multi touch panel looks extremely rich with a pixel density of 432 ppi and prevents any kind of scratches thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass v3.0 protection.
 
It is encased in a textured or dimpled body with a thickness of 8.9mm which can be gripped more easily. It has been spotted with a square camera module, thicker and blunter corners and three capacitive buttons on the front. With the IP67 rating, it is designed to perform continuously for 30 minutes even in 1m of water and remove dust instantly.
 
Processor and OS
 
It runs the latest Android v4.4.2 KitKat OS and enables you to control the functions of the phone via voice commands. Sensors like accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, barometer, light, proximity, humidity, infrared gesture and fingerprint ID have been loaded to boost your experience.
 
The presence of Fit Live app from Sprint gives you access to more apps related to fitness and health. You will also get the opportunity to use Spotify’s playlists regarding workout. The MapMyFitness app from Under Armour lets you keep a track of your stats and also utilize GPS for getting the correct route.
 
Under the hood, it features a stunningly powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 Quad Core processor galloping at 2.5GHz which is further boosted by a 2GB RAM. The visual experience is enhanced by the Adreno 330 GPU.
 
Camera and Storage
 
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport comes with a brilliant 16MP CMOS shooter on the back capable of shooting UHD 4K (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) videos at 30fps and 1080p videos at 60fps. You can even capture realistic, sharp and vibrant photos and videos at the same time. The rear camera’s support for features like dual shot, AF phase detection, smile and face detection, manual focus, HDR, digital image stabilization, manual focus and geo-tagging speaks for themselves. It has a 2MP front camera as well.
 
The phone packs an inbuilt memory of 16GB further expandable up to 128GB.
 
Battery and Connectivity
 
The smartphone is fuelled by a 2800mAh Li-ion battery and sports connectivity options like 3G, LTE, mobile hotspot, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, NFC, tethering, TV-Out, USB OTG, USB 3.0 port, Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/ac/b/g/n.

    Yes, it's another Samsung Galaxy S5 variant. This time we look at the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport, currently exclusive to Sprint in the US, it's the more sporty and slightly less Joe Outdoorsman version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active that's exclusive to AT&T in the US. Like the Active, the Galaxy S5 Sport retains the same excellent specs and 5.1" full HD Super AMOLED display as the standard GS5, so you're not compromising anything by going ...

    Pros: What's Hot: Same great specs as Samsung Galaxy S5, a bit more rugged, Activity Zone handy for outdoor adventures.

    Cons: What's Not: Not so different in terms of durability from the GS5, lots of bloatware.

    Verdict: If your heart says Samsung Galaxy S5 but you want something a little more rugged, with outdoorsy and sports software pre-loaded, by all means get the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport. You'll also enjoy two colors that set it apart from the sea of GS5 phones o...

Granted, it also feels slightl...

    Pros: Spectacular screen. Excellent camera. Water-resistant.

    Cons: Cons All-plastic design. Bloatware.
