Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is coming with 277 apps says leak
posted by Alan F. / Apr 12, 2014, 11:34 PM
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.

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.

"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

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.
