    There was little doubt that the Galaxy S5 Active exists, thanks to all the leaks we've seen recently. But, with water resistance already present on the Galaxy S 5, many were wondering about the purpose of an Active phone. As a reminder, last year's Galaxy S4 Active brought IP57 over the standard build of the S4, but in 2014, Samsung wants you to be (more) active. The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is now also shock resistant, and has a dustproof casing -- IP67 & MIL-spec 810G -- (in addition to being water resistant like its classic sibling). Underneath the ruggedized body you can find ...

    There are no hard-and-fast rules when it comes to how news of pre-release smartphones arrive. Sometimes it's a months-long process, wherein new information arrives little by little, and the whole time we're unsure what's trustworthy and what's not. Sometimes we're left guessing all the way up until the very end. And then there those times when the normal progression all goes awry, and we're seeing leaks all out of order. Such is the case with Samsung's Galaxy S5 Active, as we check out the first render of the phone to leak, as it gets ready for launch on AT&T. While rumors of the GS5 ...

    Forget fan renders. Forget low-quality blurrycam shots. Last night the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active went from being the stuff of rumors and speculation to being the next best thing to officially confirmed, as a fantastic hands-on interaction with the ruggedized smartphone was published. Things quickly progressed from a few powered-down still shots to videos of the phone in action, and we brought you the first few updates as they arrived. Well, by now a bunch more have surfaced, and we've compiled them together here for you to check out. We start with an extended hands-on, looking not just at ...

    Sure, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is already water-resistant, but just because the flagship itself is a little more resilient than last year's edition doesn't mean that the manufacturer isn't interested in releasing a beefed-up Active version, as well. Going back as far as February we've been hearing rumors of a GS5 Active, and lately they've really been increasing in activity. Most recently, we've seen Samsung itself allude to the model number expected for the GS5 Active on its own site, and a leak of a possible case for the phone has been floating around. Today we may finally get to check out ...

    The case for Samsung releasing a number of new Galaxy S5-series phones keeps looking stronger and stronger, and models like the GS5 Mini, GS5 Active, and this quad HD GS5 Prime keep picking up new evidence in support of their existence as they get closer and closer to official Samsung confirmation. Earlier this month we checked out a page on one of Samsung's regional sites in Finland, which seemed to confirm support for the model number we had identified as the GS5 Mini. Today we return with a new twist on the same tale, as similar pages are uncovered for the GS5 Active. While back then we ...

    For a moment there, it seemed like Samsung might not bring a Galaxy S5 Active to market, at least considering the water resistance already inherent to the parent Galaxy S5. But even after the GS5's launch, these Active rumors have persisted, and last week we saw them get quite specific, zeroing-in on a model number. This week that model number leads us to some new evidence, as a User Agent Profile turns up for this mystery hardware. We already heard that the GS5 Active might arrive as Samsung's model SM-G870, and that carrier variants may be coming to AT&T and Sprint. There's still no ...

    Have you managed to get through all this new HTC One coverage without forgetting about Samsung's Galaxy S5? Though Samsung got its news out early, HTC has managed to beat the South Korean company when it comes to getting its new phone into the hands of users. We're still waiting for GS5 sales to begin, and last week heard a rumor suggesting that Samsung was running into manufacturing issues that threatened to affect availability. Today we get an update on that situation, and also hear about a possible Galaxy S5 Active (GS4 version above). As you'll recall, last time the problem with GS5 ...

    Last year, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 has lent its name to many products that followed, including the water-proof Galaxy S4 Active, the smaller sibling Galaxy S 4 Mini, as well as the Frankencameraphone, the Galaxy S 4 Zoom. Chances are big that this year Samsung will follow the same trend, as a certain Galaxy S 5 Active is being mentioned in a recent report from South Korea. While the S4 Active, according to reports, has accounted for only three-to-four percent from the total sales volume of the S4 brand, Samsung is allegedly expecting a much larger number from the S5 Active, of approximately ...
