Samsung Galaxy S5 or S5 Active 16GB Smartphone
Slim yet powerful, the Galaxy S5 puts a full HD display, quad-core processor, and fast 4G LTE data in the palm of your hand. The Galaxy S5 Active boasts the same components, but packages them in a rugged water- and dust-resistant enclosure.
Handheld High Definition
Movies, games, and photos on the Galaxy S5 look as richly detailed and vibrant as they would on an HDTV thanks to the phone’s crisp 1080p display. The sharp screen helps everything you do look a little better—from rendering smooth, easy-to-read text to making app interfaces look clearer and easier to navigate.
Apps are snappy and responsive, multitasking is seamless, and video playback is smooth thanks to the Galaxy S5’s quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. These powerful components help the phone do more at once without skipping a beat, ensuring you’ll be able to run the latest apps.

The latest games, productivity tools, and social media apps are all available to download from the Google Play store, which is home to more than 1 million free and paid apps.
Built for Active Lifestyles
The Galaxy S5 Active takes everything that’s great about the regular Galaxy S5 and wraps it in a durable enclosure that’s designed to go wherever you go.

In the 70 years of its existence, Samsung has grown into an international company with interests spanning from home electronics to skyscraper construction. The company takes its global role seriously, working to improve communities with both its financial support and the expertise of its talented employees. The company’s Solve for Tomorrow competition, for instance, challenges kids to create videos that demonstrate how science and math can be used in new ways to improve their local environment. After screening the videos of thousands of worthy entrants and dozens of confused American Idol hopefuls, Samsung chooses five winners, whose schools each receive $110,000 in technology. Solve for Tomorrow is just one of the company’s outreach initiatives, which align with its philosophy: to help build a “better global society.”
