Well thanks for informing this. So it sounds like that the protruded camera lens is causing this issue. Some people did mention this but I thought it was bogus, hmm! Have used it just for two weeks, so can't say either.
Yes, on S4 there was not a single scratch on the lens cover, even after extensive usage for almost a year. So it definitely is the protruded lens shape. Not good, not good at all.

Just got mine yesterday, don't have enough time right now as i'm working, but so far feeling exciting with the super clear screen, super smooth. Hooray Samsung!

As far as my S5 is concerned, I put it in my pants pocket with only flip cover and the camera is exposed but no scratch at all since I bought it.

Whatever phone you get, if you don't know how to sync, it's useless.

My s5 working not good 1st on vedio recording not clear 2nd on vaibr wechat voice message not clearty
I got my galaxy s5 (July 4th 2014), !
Was very pleased with all the technology,
But my phone started getting hot , ended up having to get another one , but after getting the new one it started the same not getting hot but warm, what they don't tell u is that Samsung has placed lots of apps on this phone which is running at all times , if u don't know how to turn off the apps then u will ended up with a phone that's always getting hot and will eventually shut off, so my advice to the ones that has a phone that is overheating call your carrier let him go through the apps with you, to shut off the ones u don't need and the ones u should leave alone , because if u shut off the wrong thing it can mess up your phone , after doing this u shouldn't have no problems with ur phone overheating,
Yeah dea is right my s5 lens scratched many times. I dont know why. I take care for it. I putted the s5 in my soft pocket where nothing else except the phone.suddenly i see scratches. I used s4 one year. No cack covers or protector and i didnt see any scratch on the camera lens

dean, 16 Jul 2014In the back on the camera lensLOL! Even professional camera will scratch the lens if not used carefully.
AnonD-257122, 16 Jul 2014Ha,ha,ha,ha..galaxy star vs S5,what a comparison… lol!!! Wahaha! You're absolutely right.
I also laugh that hard when user FRESH post this:
"its the same as samsung galaxy star same features design and it also accomodates bbm so why should you buy an s5 for what"
I only reply to that comment. Hahaha!
My only problem with the Samsung Galaxy S5 is the screen protection because if you can protect the screen for us in terms of accident I mean if mistakenly fall on the ground unconciously you can loose the glass which is so expensive and not even in the market for now.
