    In May 2014, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active was released, it was the rough and ready version of the S5 packing some extra protection for unexpected collisions and water damage. To identify the Galaxy S5 Active, all you have to do is check out the back of the phone as the smartphones model name is printed right there!

    The Galaxy S5 Active you’re selling comes with a 16MP rear camera and 2MP selfie cam. The exterior has a noticeable layer of extra protection around it, in particular the sides and corners that have bumper like pads on.

    When you go to trade-in your old Samsung S5 Active for cash, be sure to go into the settings menu and do a factory reset on the phone (after backing it up of course). This way you have your old data and peace of mind shipping it, of course, every buyback solution featured on BankMyCell has data removal facilities where they do this anyway – but it’s good to do anyway.

    What to do before you sell your device

    • Backup your data/photos/settings
    • Perform a factory reset in settings
    • Remove cases/SD cards/accessories
    • Give your device a quick clean

    BANKMYCELL VERDICT

    In 2014, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active was a great phone with all the functions you’d want from an Android smartphone at the time. The ‘Active’ part also meant that the phone could withstand a few drops too with its extra outer casing.


    PROS

    • Great battery life
    • Great screen for the time
    • Price point was good

    CONS

    • Wasn’t the best visual design
    • Software was not the fastest
    • De-focus was slow
