Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is coming with 277 apps says leak

Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is coming with 277 apps says leak
(Note: Picture at left shows last year's Samsung Galaxy S4 Active)

Evleaks has tweeted what he says is 277 active APKs that will be included on the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active. This variant of the Galaxy S5 is supposed to be rougher and tougher than the regular version of the phone. Last year the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active was the only variant of the device that was water proof and dust proof, but this year the regular version of the phone has IP67 certification. That means that the Samsung Galaxy S5 can be submerged in 1 meter of water (3.2 feet) for up to 30 minutes, and live.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active might be certified to the next level, IP68. This is the same certification received by the Sony Xperia Z2, and allows users to submerge their handsets to 1.5 meters (5 feet) for one hour, and work like new.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active has yet to be announced by the Korean manufacturer, but is rumored to be available for customers of both AT&T and Sprint, later this year.

Dafuq? Is that all bloatware, or is it just listing the number of processes installed? I mean, Android itself has dozens of system "apps" running at all times, just to keep the lights on. If you do a full backup with Titanium or whatever, you'll likely have 300+ "apps" backed up. Not really news...

its will only be a news if its Bloatware. background android apps hardly make any effect. look at nexus. samsung needs to ditch touchwiz and start again. or make a huge change over like Motorola did with Moto G/X and iOS7.

They are going to make a super brick for people who value bricks more than light weight phones. AKA Sony, HTC, and Nokia fans.

But will still be butt ugly on the front unlike something those mfg's do

That is just the opinion of the haters. The rest of population of normal people think that the front looks fine minus those big physical buttons.

Alan F strike again. Thanks for the heads up. Most Samsung device do have plenty of bloat ware. If that is a concern do buy another brand. Other than Apple I wonder which Android brand don't carry bloat ware.

Ok, I can now really feel that my S4 Active will gonna be soon outdated. But I still love my phone and Samsung too for making this phone such a great device.

really dont see the point of a S5 Active. couldnt they just have made the S5 with this certification? we have Samsung pulling sh!t like this and smurf has the nerve to call out Sony for refreshing their flagships every 6 months

"Active might be certified to the next level, IP68. This is the same certification received by the Sony Xperia Z2," Lie. Sony Xperia Z2 has not IP68 , bit IP58. That means less dust proof than S5. This is the same iRumor like the "premium ALUMINUM S4". Inveted to brainwash you that Samsung "know" that S5 is "not premium" like iPhone (and HTC M8) and just try to catch up with them. Now is the sane trick, but "catch up with" Z2

and ip58 also means better waterproofing than S5....!! Z2 can go upto 5 feet water for 1 hour...

he said dust proof, not water proof. z2 is less dust proof than s5 but z2 is more water proof than s5

Better than non removable bloatware. Unwanted Apks can be deleted.

galaxy s5 active 16gb and 3gb ram comes with 4gb free space and 1gb usable ram...

15. express77 unregistered

wrong. 1 gb free space and 100 mb ram with all that bloat. i suggest people to buy original s5 or rumoured 2k s5 over it.

10. TechFreak123

The S5 comes with 11.8GB available user space for the 16GB variant and there's barely any bloat. So I really doubt it.

Now thats how you are suppose to bloat your device with unnecessary apps and gimmicks that will consume more ram and slow down you're device... Somebody should learn from Samsung how to slow down your device and make androids experience Laggy...

Haters just need some excuse to hate. Apks need to be installed as apps. They CAN BE DELETED as normal files WITHOUT root access. But still samsung should ditch Ugly laggy CRAPWIZ and slap cyanogenmod or paranoid android. It will sell like hot cakes.

why dont you download apex or nova launcher if you hate touchwiz, simple. i love touchwiz it has more feautres than any other UI out there... its android, if you dont like it, install what you like or root it, simple

14. express77 unregistered

this is the reason android phones are laggy and samsung is the king of it.
