The S5 offers very few improvements over the S4. The camera, processor and battery are slightly better. You get a fingerprint scanner (big deal), a heart rate monitor (big deal) and it's water and dust resistant (though you will have plastic flaps over key parts).
You lose the menu key, it's heavier, bigger, there's a magazine view and Touchwiz now uses iOS 7 inspired circles throughout the UI.

So, everybody says samsung has same design? What about sony Z1 and Z2? Htc one m7 and m8? iphone 4, 4s, 5, 5s? They all look almost the same. So many samsung haters here... And speaking of performance Z2, M8 and S5 have same processor, same display resolution, same os, it is not big deal if score 1 point more in benchmark test. If you don't like it don't buy it and get a life.
I've had all the Galaxy S range so far. I got the S2 over the S primarily due to the flash. The S3 was an awesome upgrade on the S2 and I still recommend it to people over the S4. I got the S4 only because I had a contract due, and although its good it offers the general user nothing of note over the S3 only software gimicks that get switched off after a week. Now its time to upgrade again and looking at the S5 I see nothing that will inspire me to go for that over any of the others. I will probably go for the Sony Z2, just so I notice that I've got a new phone.

Samsung will soon be sued by BandAid as well
M.G, 28 Mar 2014Absolutely not.. atleast Z2 is superior to S5 in benchmark and in looks too!!Absolutely yes, S5 has faster chip than Z2. 2.3GHz for Z2 2.5GHz for S5. On Antutu, S5 beats Z2 by 2-3 thousand points.

For me, 28 Mar 2014It's a disappointing phone from samsung. Probably the least exciting release since the SGS2.Can u tell me whats so disappointing about this phone(GS5)?

Sammy spends more money on promoting and marketing than R&D.
May be Sammy does not have R&D, this is the reason why they keep on recycling the old school design.
boring design, the difference is they paste a band aid at the back....
