Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport is a high-level Android cellphone released some years ago, in 2014, packed with a good size 5.1-inches multi touch screen, an extremely powerful Quad-Core processing unit running at 2500 MHz, and 2 cameras, a 16 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 2 megapixels front facing camera. We will get a better understanding of this device's specs when we get into specific details.

Samsung decided to sell this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 MSM8974-AC system chip, holding an extremely fast Quad-Core CPU ticking at 2.5 GHz and a large 2 GB of RAM. Helping with graphic calculations, this phone also uses a 450 MHz Adreno 330 GPU. A good point of the S5 Sport is its big 16 GB internal memory and a slot for an SD memory card, enough to store a couple hundred applications without any trouble.

Being just 0.35 inches thick,the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport is very thin and comfortable. This phone is a very compact cellphone, considering it features a 5.1" display and it has just 5.67" long and 2.91" wide. This cellphone is for sale in 2 color options, blue and red. Samsung has made a really good job making this phone weight just 5.57 oz.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport includes an absolutely amazing 5.1-inches display with a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution, which makes everything look beautiful and brightful. Its display uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

The S5 Sport features two cameras, a 16 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 2 megapixels front facing camera. Its back facing camera has a maximum f/2.2 aperture so it can take sharp photographs even in poorly lit environments. It can also shoot videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second. Additionally, the camera features a couple of useful characteristics: flash, auto-focus, HDR mode, digital image stabilization and geo tagging.

This cellphone comes with a large 2800 mAh Li-Ion battery providing the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport a quite long battery duration. Samsung afirms this cellphone has a 390 hs stand by time and a 21 hs talk time.

The S5 Sport provides Wi-Fi capability (which can be provided to other devices around, acting as a router or modem), 4G LTE high performance internet connection and also HSPA+ data connection, which is a slower 4G variation or the fastest 3G data connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This phone works with a SIM card for GSM carriers.

This cellphone also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0, EDR), Fingerprint ID, GPS, Infrared Transmitter and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone is a great option for everyone considering it's a fabulous cellphone and it costs only 299 dollars. This phone is definitely a good choice for you if you you love taking pictures, are looking for a social phone, are looking for a gamer device or want it for work.
