Samsung Galaxy S5 vs. iPhone 5S VS. Nexus 5 VS. Lumia Icon
Now Samsung Galaxy S5 is official, it's time to see how it compares to some of the other flagship smartphones on the market.
Spec-wise, the Galaxy S5 is largely similar to its Android and Windows Phone competition. Its screen is 5.1 inches and has a resolution of 1920 x 1080, which in 2014 is almost standard.
Like the iPhone 5S, the Galaxy S5 has a fingerprint sensor. It's also dust- and water-resistant — similar to the Galaxy S4 Active we saw last year. Like the Nexus 5, the Samsung Galaxy S5 runs Android 4.4.2 Kitkat.
