Screen S5 wins against all. It's overall best out there.
Speed is basically on pat. Camera...you see the results. Fine you say with Google cam that changes. But it then brings it's own set of negatives as well. It also does not account for contrast, very bright lights, faster focus, real time hdr, cleaner/more natural video, better audio, better use of the full sensor, and the front camera....which is not as important to everyone, but is a great deal better in every aspect.
And there is nothing cheap plastic or bad about the build. That's just hurt fan boy talk.
Poly carbonate is overall more practical, durable, cost effect, and more simple to replace as compared to glass and aluminum.
Just the same the glass and aluminum are no less cheap recyclable materials and they don't handle heat as well either.
On top of that it is more ergonomic with a soft touch back that is one of the most comfortable to touch/hold there is out there.
And "BUILD QUALITY" is not the same as personal "MATERIAL PREFFERENCE". It's build "QUALITY" is great.
drkavin, 18 Jul 2014My own shooting... I own z2...sony auto mode is good for macro and very very low light.for sun... moreFair enough. How about burst shot? I keep thinking GSM arena will bring it up but they don't.
The past Z phones would tend to take better results in burst mode.
Lumia 1020 should not be compared with these phone that is the King infact Lumia 930 and Lumia 1520 should be compared to these phones but I must say I love Lg G2 camera+ iPhone

glass back cover is stupid idea z2's back is very slippery and my friend dropped his z2 and got cracked. and he spent too much money for replacement.
none removable back cover is totally stupid and you cannot easily change your back cover one you need to do.
Remember how old the 1020 as compared to the others. It is reaching phase out phase in about a month and could be replaced by another flagship.

Screw any camera that takes 5-6 secs between photos! The biggest problem with Android is lag, around a second, but 6 seconds would make throw the phone to the garbage.

For most of the frame, the S5 will capture more details, or at least not any less details. The field of view is smaller, and the dynamic range is less, but in terms of capturing details overall, the S5 wins that round over the 1020, but I havent compared the rest.
It would be very nice if Samsung decided to include a raw option to get even a little bit more of details out of it. Let's hope it comes with android L (and to the K Zoom as well, I hope)
Duel, 17 Jul 2014It has bad camera, everyone knows thatguys calm down , CAMERA IS NOT BAD , but it's pixel limit is very less , thats why it is not included in competition Simple
I also would have liked to see the K Zoom in this comparison.
But it's not a camera comparison, it's a flagship shootout, so only flagships are included.
(however, the 1020, isnt really a flagship anymore, one could argue nokia dont really have one at the moment, since the 1520 is a phablet that most people would not consider, and the 930, is an upgrade to the 920/925 and not to the 1020, thus sitting one step below flagship line, however the 930 is a mainstream device, with a decent spec'ed camera so it would have been very interesting to see, and one could argue the 1020 was always nisched because of it's camera, and thus fits the same nische as the K zoom rather than your average flagship, and then the K Zoom should really have been included).
This was really a biased shootout! Did they actually compare the whole photo or just a part of it. Leave the nostalgia go. The Lumia 1020 was not the best in daylight photo! Just check the photo, corner with corner and you will see that the S5 had so many parts taken better than the 1020. The restaurant/shop (not really sure what is that), the public lamp, the tree, all are noisy on the 1020, still you declare it the winner here!? In the low light, no-flash winner was the G3. Simply resize the photo taken by the 1020 to the visual dimension of the one taken by the G3 and you will see that the 1020 is noisier! The low light flash winner is, yes, the 1020. In the panorama the iPhone 5s clearly has the most details. The picture is much cleaner than the one taken by the G3 or the S5. The daylight video winner is, yes, the S5. The low light 2160p video top seems right but in the 1080p top the second place should be given to the S5, not to the iPhone. If you compare the shots you could clearly see the difference. Overall, the S5 is the winner but not thanks to the words written by GSMArena, but to comparing the photos side by side. The Lumia is not the winner now. Face it! But it is still a very good cameraphone, especially in low light! Please, be right next time! Also, what about the K Zoom? I thought it is already in shops.
waiting for the z3 which i know will sport the same sensor but i am hoping for an upgrade in the camera software department.
that 20MP sensor is under utilized & let down by bad software optimization.
and yeah also throw in OIS+ like the G3.
Z2 or even Z1 could have been the best of camera phones offered by android
If only 1020 would be fast enough to open it should do well, but overall its just great. Nothing is perfect you know..

Eon, 18 Jul 2014Instead of HTC they chose Oppo!!! What the hell!because they are smart
come on ............... you putted 5s in compare but m8 no?????????????????

VanHelsing, 18 Jul 2014Yeah, previously i also had a Z. Now i am planning to buy a Z2 nonetheless, whatever the revie... moreZ2 has best screen camera and speed..forget what people comment..its a prestigious to have a glass shiny phone than plastic... Samsung lost to sony in build quality elegance... Still camera with hdr I accept s5 beats z2.but compared google camera and s5..s5 is way far..and such a pricy phone resembles cheap chineese phone..what a shame..i spend extra bucks and went for z2...love the feel and look...it's shame that cheap Chinese brands are mocking samsung as plastic while samsung is busy mocking ipad for amoled screen...samsung ur best in software mould..but before mocking apple 🍎 look your cheaper plastic build..
