Rugged Samsung Galaxy S5 Active for AT&T now available [VIDEO]


Samsung and AT&T have once again come together to launch the rugged version of the manufacturer’s annual flagship. It’s the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active, and it can be yours as early as today $200 on a new two-year contract. You’re also free to go the AT&T Next route, which will get you the device for $0 down payment for $27.50 per month (26 monthly installments with an option to upgrade after 18 months) or $35.75 per month (20 monthly installments with an option to upgrade after 12 months).

Where as Samsung tried to keep a sleek and slim profile for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active and make it as stylish as any phone could look, they went all out with the rugged look and feel for this one. A nice, protector bumper around the edges protects the device from drops, and its tight design gives IP67 and military-spec 810G ratings for dustproof, waterproof and shock resistant qualities.

Samsung’s even gone full-on camo with the backplate, with screws in each of the four corners of the device to top off that “I’m a badass phone that will be hard to break” look. Specs and software wise, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is nearly identical to the original.

It still has the same 5.1-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 processor, 16 megapixel camera, and even the original’s heart rate monitor. What it doesn’t seem to have is a fingerprint scanner, so if you care about that particular feature you may want to steer clear. The device ships as soon as you order it so head to AT&T’s site if you’ve been waiting on this, and take a look at their mobile minute video above to get yourself a closer looks.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
