Samsung Galaxy S 5 Sport at Sprint

Samsung Galaxy S 5 Sport
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Sprint. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating. As a Sprint Ambassador, I will share my experiences while testing various Sprint devices and services.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport is built with the active user in mind. Models on the Sprint Network have the capability to use Sprint Spark, which offers up to 60Mpbs mobile internet speeds. The phone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon, quad core processor which clocks at 2.5 GHz.

As the phone is intended for athletic minded people, it contains the MapMyFitness app which records the user's exercising progress via the built in GPS capability. Other health related programs include S Health which assists with the scheduling of workouts, healthy meal suggestions, and heart rate monitoring. Sprint Fit Live provides access to health information and related apps directly though a live wallpaper. Activity Zone is another included app which has a flashlight, compass, stopwatch and barometer in a single screen setting.Samsung Galaxy S 5 Sport HD Display
In line with the model's focus on the active lifestyle, the phone's exterior is both dust and water resistant. It is also manufactured with coarser surface to increase grip during physical activities. Furthermore, the phone has 3 physical control buttons to provide ease of use while active.This Samsung device runs on Android 4.4.2, otherwise known as KitKat. It has a Multi Window feature which allows the user to move between apps without closing them out, or having to restart another app. As an Android device, it contains all the necessary Google apps such as Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps, and Google Search. Users can also use other personal email accounts through the standard Google email app, and perform instant messaging with the Google Hangouts app.Samsung Galaxy S 5 Sport 3 Samsung Galaxy S 5 Sport 2Samsung Galaxy S 5 Sport 4Samsung Knox can be used with in the Galaxy S5 Sport to secure private data on a virtual drive partition.

There are two cameras on the device, both a full resolution rear camera, and a self-shot one located above the screen area. The rear camera has 16 megapixel resolution, and employs auto-focus and absolutely no shutter lag. The rear camera may be used for both photos and HD video at 30 fps. The front camera has a resolution of 2 MP for video chat and self taken photos.

The Samsung Smart Remote software can also provide suggestions for TV shows and films, and can be adjusted to reflect the user's preferences.
