Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport Unboxing (Video)

By Michael Fisher August 1, 2014, 6:55 pm

Remember that AT&T Galaxy S5 Active we inadvertently destroyed a few weeks back? We felt pretty badly about that (despite the fact that it wasn’t our fault) and we’ve been itching to give the whole notion of a ruggedized Galaxy S5 another go.

As luck would have it, Sprint recently landed its very own beefed-up Galaxy S5 in the form of the Galaxy S5 Sport, and the carrier was nice enough to shoot us a review unit. Instead of camouflage, our Electric Blue review device comes packing a rubberized backside and a whole boatload of bloat meant to make it more attractive to the exercise aficionados in the house. While it doesn’t offer MIL-STD durability, it sure feels pretty robust, and it’s as waterproof as every device in the Galaxy S5 family (on paper at least).


We’ll see how much we like the phone in our video review next week, but for now, it’s time for us to navigate our way around some Sprint-branded cardboard for the first time in a long while. If you missed our tease in today’s Pocketnow Weekly podcast, join us for our Galaxy S5 Sport unboxing, then head down to the comments to let us know what questions you’d like answered in the video review!
