We’ve compared the Samsung Galaxy S5 to some up and coming devices that are set to be released in 2014: The Sony Xperia Z2, the LG G Pro 2, Nexus 5, and the HTC One. Once the “all new HTC One” drops sometime in the coming months, we’ll most likely update this to include it as well.

There you have it! The battle of the beasts. Right now, the Samsung Galayx S5 is looking pretty good against the competituion, however, the Sony Xperia Z2 is pretty close to it in terms of hardware. It may have to come down to the extra features, such as the fingerprint scanner and other things, that'll set apart this next line of flagship phones.

So, what do you think of the Galaxy S5? Are you happy with the direction Samsung went with it?
