Z2 (5.2") has 0.1"= 2.5 mm larger screen than S5 (5.1").
Stereo speaker need more space than small physical button + finggerprint scaner just look at HTC One 4.7" phone but taller than most 5" phones, at the same time the iPhone 5s have the same dimensions as the iPhone 5 although the iphone 5s has a fingerprint scanner.
And i'm pretty sure that 3200 mAh battery is physhically bigger than 2800 mAh.

If you samsung put 5.2" display, stereo speaker and 3200 mAh battery into S5.
S5 will likely have larger and thicker dimensions than Z2.
And until this day you can't find any Galaxy phone with better screen ratio or thinner body than Xperia phones.

Z2 has better water protection and from what i know for electronic devices water is far more dangerous than the dust.

FYI IP58 is dust protected and can survive from immersion in water generally up to 3 m.

Z2 has bigger screen, dual fron speakers, bigger camera sensor and bigger battery, thats why it has bigger bazel and bigger overall size

Its not only Smurf but another 100k users like GS5.http://www.phonearena.com/news/T-Mobile-collects-record-100K-registrations-for-the-Samsung-Galaxy-S5_id53255

Only nerds on internet hate Apple and Samsung.

If a 'new S4' can generate that excitement. I can only imagine the stir, GS5 its 'successor', created.

No one likes Apple as well. But you're forgetting that 1% of tech geeks don't form 6.5 billion of potential buyers.

By your logic, Nokia has the biggest fan base but they couldn't protect their beloved brand from selling did they ?

Most people admitted that the reason they preordered was for the chance to win a free phone. Therefore the results are flawed. Not saying the phone won't sell well however.

I would sign up for a chance to win a free mini cooper, but I would never drive one.

I was one of the people that signed up, but only for the chance to win a free one, so that I can win one, then sale it online and get an HTC One. i would never actually pay or use the S5.

So you don't think Samsung will sell a lot of GS5s? Or will the sales be flawed also?

Did you even read my comment?

"Therefore the results are flawed. Not saying the phone won't sell well however."

I clearly stated that only the results are flawed, and I said that this will NOT reflect in bad sales.

Not sure if you skipped over it, but reread a post and know its meaning before making a bad comment.

It will sell well since its the new galaxy, but it just isn't as impressive as previous versions upon its release for who get excited about phones. I would think that the group of people that visit phonearena don't properly represent the population that would consider the S5. I also don't think the majority of people would know the S5 isn't as major an upgrade as versions before.

I have the Galaxy Note 2 and have been using the Z1 for the last week or so and the Sony experience is horrible... Why is it so laggy with snapdragon 800. My note 2 feels faster. I can't imagine how it will compete with S4, note 3 or the new S5.

The phone although looks nice is unpractical. The huge squarish bezel makes it nearly big as my note 2 but with a much smaller screen and uncomfortable to hold.

People moan about the UI of touchwiz but it is much better than Z1.

There is good reason why Samsung sells in the ship loads while Sony sells bucket load and no its not about marketing or hype. I don't like iPhones but can see why people choose it. Again very successful for a reason...

A cheap car model satisfying all needs at low price will always win in sales as compared to Mercedes,BMW or Audi

Exactly! Toyota sales millions of Corollas, are these the best, not by a long shot! Sales do not equal best! The sammy may sale, but it will still be subpar no matter what! HTC One and Z2 will be the best phones of the year, no matter what sales occur!! Poor saps will get their Toyota S5!
