Apple is a hurdle in any advancement or change, a road block for any change... they will bring a case if they will see any success in a new product and icourts are not sitting idle to help

I agree that things aren't likely to change much this year. In fact I feel like Samsung has upped their game just as much as the competitors have to match Samsung. So in other words Samsung is still going to be on top of the Android space (plus they have the money in the bank to out-advertise) for this year while Apple is likely to stay where they are, because they are Apple.
Why? Well, Sony and HTC are upping their antes, but Samsung hasn't exactly rested on its laurels (switching to ISOCELL, matching Sony's IPxx, fastest updates, "the best smartphone display ever") and has avoided losing some of their winning qualities (battery life, AMOLED, compactness, ergonomics, etc.).
The S5 (besides the looks department) honestly strikes me as having no weak points in hardware (except mono speaker, gadzakes) and regardless of your view on TouchWhiz it is hands down the most functional (version of a) mobile operating system I've had the experience of using.

No patent B.S. Low licensing fees for better competition. No more monopolizing market trend.
