I am getting really mad at people who are complaining about the screen resolution. The iphone isn't even 720p.. full HD is enough for a phone of this size. Personally I think all the new aspects are gonna make this one heck of a seller. Even if the sales don't go as planned, I personally know I am getting one

The next big thing is to hate on Samsung. Just ignore the trolls. They're hungry today.

Sony Z2 or Samsung S5
They are both water resistent..

I would go with the Z2; better looking design (IMO), bigger battery, a camera that is know to be great, the waterproofing is higher rated (though the dustproofing is a step down from the S5). Regrettably Sony doesn't release CDMA phones, so I can't get it.

The camera on the Z1 was a hit or miss - literally. Both are waterproof, but the removable battery is a definite plus and a reason why I'll never consider getting a Sony phone in the future.

Really? I've only heard good things about the camera as it was in the full sized Z1, it was the compact that seemed to have problems with it.
Personally I don't care about removable batteries and would rather have a large battery that I cant remove. I care about design over that, and think the Z series looks great.
I am impressed that the S5 still has a removable battery even with its waterproofing and dustproofing, I really want to see a video of someone swapping it out to see how Samsung managed that.

You have to admit that their are both Apple and Samsung trolls. But today Samsung didn't deliver the goods. People have every right to be upset.
Is the S5 a good phone? Yes, but for people to wait a year for a S4 rehash is not harsh for the bashing comments you hear...

The same exact thing happened last year with the S4 announcement. Same exact thing. Guess what? S4 was the most referenced, talked about, and rated phone on PA in 2013 besides the 5S.
