Sprint's fitness-oriented variant to the Galaxy S5, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport, has just about everything the original S5 does, but comes in a nicer-looking package.

Physical controls

Looks are subjective, of course, and I happen to like the physical home buttons and bolder red or blue design.

Rubberized backing

The S5's dimples get a slight reimagining with this swatch of slightly rubberized material.

Side view

Buttons rise higher from the surface on the Sport compared to the S5 original, though this phone lacks the convenience key of AT&T's S5 Active.

Camera

Just like the S5, the Sport here has a 16-megapixel camera that is capable of taking some excellent shots.

Corner kick

So it doesn't have the S5 Active's reinforced plastic corners. That'll absolutely make it less inherently rugged. The trade-off is a shiny-meets-matte aesthetic.

Charging port

The S5 Active and Sport lacks the Micro-USB 3.0/MHL 2.0 connection port in favor of a regular Micro-USB jack.

No fingerprint scanner here

You won't find a fingerprint scanner on these tactile buttons; that belongs to the S5 alone.

Internals

Apart from the fingerprint scanner and charging port, you'll get the same fast quad-core processor as on the S5, plus 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

Lock screen

Here's one last look at the phone. Is it actually sportier? You'll need to head to my full Galaxy S5 Sport review to find out.

REVIEW

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

he Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
