If you’ve been wanting a super durable version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 you have been stuck with AT&T. The Galaxy S5 Active is finally leaving the US and heading to Canada. Bell, Rogers, and TELUS are all offering the Active for around CA$280 with a two-year contract and CA$700 outright. You can buy right now from Bell and Rogers, next week from TELUS.
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. It even comes in camo.
The S5 Active still has the same 5.1-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 processor, 16 megapixel camera, and even the heart rate monitor. One thing it doesn’t seem to have is a fingerprint scanner, so if you care about that particular feature you may want to steer clear.
