    AT&T Variant / US Compatible LTE
    The SM-G870A is the AT&T variant of the Galaxy S5 Active. The SM-G870A's LTE radio is tuned to frequencies that are most often used in the United States and North America.

    Android 6.0 Marshmallow
    The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 6.0 Marshmallow overhauls permissions, allowing you to have finer control over what your applications have access to. It also marks the debut of Now on Tap, a context-sensitive update to Google Now that checks your current screen for keywords and then searches for them automatically. Other performance and security enhancements are included as well.

    Note: Device may ship with older version of Android and require updating out of the box. Update may require AT&T service for update.
