u2r5150, compare the S5 guide on here with the S5 Active one on here. Only you can make the determination with what degree of difficulty you are comfortable with. The display assemblies are different.

whether or not the amoled is the same I don't really have a good answer. I've only tried once to put a regular s5 amoled on an s5 active for any period of time and it was glitchy so I just ordered the right part. I use regular s5 displays to test s5 active boards all the time though. Of course the glass is different


@bobby what do you mean by gliychy? But does the s5 amoled works on s5 active?? And does it fit?? Thanks! :)

Can you use a Digitizer from a sprint s5 sport which is sm-860p and replace the cracked screen of a at&t s5 active sm-g870a ?
