At the end of the day, the decision to get the Galaxy S5 Sport over the standard Galaxy S5 will come to a matter of preference. The Sport is available in Electric Blue and Cherry Red while the standard Galaxy S5 is available in black, white, and copper gold on Sprint’s network. Both phones are feature-rich and are powerful road warriors. Interestingly enough, however, the Galaxy S5 Sport is priced at $199 on a two-year contract, double the $99 contract value of the flagship.

Overall, the Galaxy S5 Sport showed itself to be a very capable, high-end smartphone that performs well, has an excellent camera, and has no problem making it through a full day of use. If you’re already a Sprint customer or are interested in switching to Sprint, we highly recommend putting the Galaxy S5 Sport on your short list of phones to consider.

I would trade a millimeter of thinness for extra durability and battery life, and with the Galaxy S5 Sport, that's exactly what you get. And unless you're worried about being too conspicuous, the vibrant paint jobs are a nice touch as well. I love the three physical buttons, and the textured back is great for everyone, from workout fanatics to people who can't remember that last time they went to the gym.

I really like the Galaxy S5 Active on AT&T. But while the Active actually added some useful features, like enhanced durability and a customizable physical button, the Galaxy S5 Sport feels like nothing more than a shill for promotional tie-ins. You still get the stellar full HD display, speedy performance, and great camera of the original GS5, but unless you're gung-ho on MapMyFitness MVP and Spotfiy, I don't see the point. Stick with the original Galaxy S5, an Editors' Choice for Android phones on Sprint.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport is almost identical to Samsung's Galaxy S5 flagship phone with a few differences. The S5 Sport has a 5.1-inch Full-HD 1080p AMOLED display, ensuring that all your media from pictures, games and movies will look great on the device. It's one of the best screens on the market right now.
Furthermore, it features the same 18 MP back camera as the regular S5, which is one of the best cameras available. The default video recording is at 1080p but you can also choose to record it in Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels). The front camera is a 2MP shooter.
The S5 Sport is powered by an 2.5 GHz quad-core processor, accompanied by 2GB of RAM. Everything from browsing multiple websites, multitasking to playing resource-hungry games will be done in a snap. The 2800mAh battery ensures that you get to do all these without worrying about charging. It can play hours upon hours of video and you will definitely get more than a day of mixed use.
Other than the regular S5, the Sport comes with a grippy backplate, physical buttons and it does not have a fingerprint scanner. In addition it features preloaded activity apps for the fitness enthusiast.
