Even the GSM articles state Samsung was not the only to do that. And they stopped. While others are still doing it. And even without it they still topped benchmarks....So????
Like others lying about screens? There is not really even a fix for that. Or making one of the biggest scams in phone history and getting away with it ever year???
Or fake camera commercials? Or ceo's publicly and rudely bashing others out of spite and jealousy?

How about learn some things about the related technology and hard facts before posting here?

Thinner sensor?? You kidding me GSMArena?? It says larger chief ray angle, not a thinner sensor. It however does say thinner modules.

... well, still nowhere near Nokia's 1020 1/1.5" large image sensor though. S5's camera is a runner up, second best so far.

A Russian site has done some more shots with it those are nothing special either. The usual HDR and other shots seem just about the same as what the Note 3 managed.

Marketing is one thing and real life performance is another.

The thing with Samsung basically seems like they are slowly trying to turn Note into their main Flagship device and keeping Galaxy S series as a backup with smaller and easier to handle handsets that will give competition to the other flagships in the market. They're however trying to keep themselves ahead of the competition with Note series that get latest updates before other competition gets it. So hopefully, we'll be able to see some definite changes in Note 4 later this year.

S5 is just a minor upgrade to S4. Camera is nothing special about this phone. Given the lack of OIS, it will take too much effort to shoot a no blurry picture. Yet another marketing gimmick from Samsung.

I've seen the future of phone cameras. Just head on over to XDA for real world shots and be amazed at it's dynamic range. All these haters will cry when GSM and a bunch of others will soon agree after testing. Great job Samsung in brining us the future of mobile photography.

Does this mean the blurry mess results of taking pictures indoor is gone? The S4 camera was a big disappointment, even compared to S3 because of the slow shutter speed.
