Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport Review: A Smart Phone That Cares About Your Health

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sprint. I received a sample device to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

 

It’s that time again, folks.  Being a #SprintMom Ambassador for an awesome company, I have the pleasure to test out new devices that are hot off the market and share those experiences with my readers.  You might remember in the past I reviewed the HTC One M8 and the Kyrocera Hydro Vibe, they are great phones and I really enjoyed testing each out!  Both were such fun phones, I even tried to convert my husband over.  He is in such need of a new phone, but to be honest, he has a tough time with change and would rather use his antique phone until the screen falls off.  I can understand, when you are use to a certain type of phone, it can be hard to change.  However, when my new Sprint device arrived to the house and I saw the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport inside; my husband literally grabbed it out of my hands before I had a chance to play with it!

 

After checking the phone out myself, I really couldn’t blame his instant infatuation with the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport.  First off, it has such a sleek and light design with 5.7 x 2.9 x 0.4 inches, 5.6 ounces, 5.1 inch Full HD Super AMOLED® display, 2,800mAh Lithium-ion battery, 16GB internal memory and sported an Electric Blue color!  The sexiness of this Smart Phone does not stop there with it’s Android™ 4.4.2, KitKat, 2.5GHz quad-core processor and Sprint Spark™ network, which enhances the phone’s LTE service and allows for high quality videos.
 
Seriously, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport has ALL the bells and whistles.  Let’s talk about the entertainment aspect of this phone.  Music lover?  Then you will love the 3 months free (benefit with Framily Plan!) Spotify, a catalog of more than 20 million songs which allows users to play on demand, create playlists, share tracks with friends and much more!  Photography your thing?  Then the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport is your phone with it’s Dual Cameras; a 16-megapixel rear-facing Phase Detection Auto Focus camera with Zero Shutter Lag, flash and video capture, and 2-megapixel front-facing camera with full HD recording at 30fps.  It also comes with a Studio for photo and video editing and the Air View™ feature lets you hover your finger over photos, files, links and text for an instant preview.  The Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport even has a Smart Remote which allows you to use it as a remote control with your home theater equipment!
 
I can see why my husband (and many others) are totally obsessed with this phone, I just might give it to him!  Or will I???  Did I forget to mention the health and fitness aspect of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport??

 

 

If you have followed my blog at all, then you would know I have been on the weight loss track for what seems like forever!  For the past 11 years, I have slowly but surely been increasing my activity, watching what I eat and basically trying to live a “healthier” lifestyle.  It has been paying off because I am currently down 170 pounds since my highest weight but it is a constant struggle.  This Summer has been tough and I began gaining weight back; I had to stop the weight gain immediately!  Admittedly I do best with competitions, so I joined a 12 week biggest loser challenge.  Let me tell you, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport arrived at the perfect time in my life because it has been the PERFECT addition to my weight loss goals.   It is a Smart Phone that truly cares about your health.
 
Since beginning the weight loss challenge, I have really stepped up my fitness routine.  I’ve always been an avid lover of Yoga, it’s great for muscle building and flexibility.  However, Yoga does not burn those calories as easily as running/speed walking.  Having the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport by my side, my fitness is now incorporated into my daily life.  The Sprint Fit LiveSM gives access to  health and activity apps and has an active wall paper.  My favorite part is the S Health™1.  It is an integrated health platform that gives you access to health info, can map out your workouts, keeps track of food intake, calories burned and even monitors your stress level!!!  Luckily my stress level is low, I believe that’s due to the fact that I now have a Smart Phone looking out for my health.

 

 

 Have you ever seen a Smart Phone that can even track your heart rate when exercising?  Well now you have with the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport!  Check it out!!

 

 

From the music lover, to the photographer and even the fitness buff, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport is truly a phone for everyone.  Now I understand what all the hype is about and why my husband has been begging me for the phone.  “Sorry honey, I can’t part with it now!  You will have to get your own Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport!”
And we can afford it now that Sprint has come up with a new Family Share Pack!  A family can get 20GB of data, shared with 10 lines and unlimited talk and text for only $100 a month. That is now double the data at a lower price! You can’t go wrong with Sprint!
