Also the camera on the S5 is '... moreI've used both cameras in detail and i found out the result to be quite different than yours.
Firstly, both are great cameras and arguably the best on android.
Still shots: both are plain great with loads of detail, good exposure, edge to edge sharpness. S5 has an edge in sharpness but only little. The areas s5 excels is the focus time and dynamic range.
Modes and features: s5 hands down. Live HDR, virtual tour, HDR and stabilisation can be simultaneous. That means great dynamic range in low light shots and many other features and removed the useless ones.
Low light: in auto mode, both take useless shots with lot of noise and black shots.
Turn on stabilisation in s5 and night mode in s4 and you get some good shots. S5 has a slight edge if you turn on HDR also.
Video: no comparison here. 1080p pales against 4k. Also the 1080p on s5 uses super sampling that results in much better 1080p videos. I've seen many reviews and the s5 takes better videos than lumia 1020 even in 1080p mode. 4k crushes it. S4 takes great videos and is on par with most of phones but s5 is out if this world.
It doesn't take a genius to notice the difference between both. And I'm just an amateur. The better dynamic range, 16:9 viewfinder, live HDR, more saturated but not over the top colours, phase detection, 4k video all add up to a better experience.
And this is coming from s4 owner who tried s5 for 3 days.
hi! i also experience heating issues, battery easily drain and the 1.67gb ram available after the update. nothing to do for now. we need to wait for the next update for it to be fixed.
S5 is claiming IP67 protection is it?
6 stands for dust tight and 7 stands for 1 meter submersion for 30 minutes.
Will samsung honor warranty if hypothetically say I bought one then accidentally dropped it in the sink(with water of course)unintentionally and water seeps through the circuit board and shorted the phone?

Also the camera on the S5 is 'slightly' better than S4, and practically even a professional photographer won't be able to tell a difference between two shots!
Awesome mobile... awesome performance...
My life powered by Samsung galaxy s5

Device heat is something normal for Android for now. The problem is not the hardware but the OS which is slowly moving towards perfection and still needs work to get the speed, stability and reliability of iOS.
How to fix this issue; phone screen turning on but blank black till I press the power button like ten times.happens randomly twice or thrice a day
I have been using the Samsung Galaxy S5 for five months now. I have noticed two major issues: 1. The battery at times starts to heat up and drains fast. 2. When I do video recording. The recorded video file plays very well on the camera. When I transfer the file onto the computer, playback is extremely slow. Someone please help to resolve these two problems.
fozi, 07 Aug 2014Which is better Samsung galaxy s5 or xperia z2go for s-5 undoubtedly
[deleted post]Absolutely right because S-5 never lags and doesn't have any problem

Terrible phone.Battery doesn't last long. dont... moreWe have one and that just isnt true is it, unless you have a fake.Just like the voting up above,ratings of 4.5 and 5's the screen and camera alone justify this phone top marks without all the other features, marks like that can only be arrived at by deliberate down voters, and what makes this tripe indigestible isnt the blather we owners have to read from people who have no proper reason to be here (we have the phone and that shuts all mouths.) Its the innocent people doing they're home work on they're next prospective phone and you would redirect them by your comments towards second rate swag. Yes big ugly bezel land awaits them out there yay and gaudy ugly coloured casings and the bland brick brigade aye an all primey touchy feely at that. aaaaarrrr
T hot, 07 Aug 2014No! This thing is only seen in samsung & some local brands.....If that is the case, you can just wait for only few months before buying it in lower price then you can have a flagship phone.
Unlike other brands, it seems to be forever before the price goes down. They are not consumer friendly.
vijju, 07 Aug 2014amezing mobile...so...wonderfull...i like....Samsung Galaxy s5...Agree!
random, 06 Aug 2014The main feature over s4, that s5 has. Higher cam. finger print scan. heart rate sensor.... moreThe exynos version in s5 is way better than s4 . s4 can run only 4 cores at a time while s5 can run all the 8 cores at the same time so there is no comparision
