Just like what i have said before Z2 has one of the most (if not most) advance display in mobile phone.
Thanks to IPS, Triluminos and Colour Live LED technology.

live color LED is a ground breaking technology, its a bit complex to understand thats why sony is not marketing it whole heartedly

I find it PATHETIC WHEN they are proven wrong and they dont have the testicular fortitude to lay a comment regarding this.

Maybe OIS, QHD display, 3-4GB of ram, 3000+ mAh battery, and metal frame :)

Optical Image Stabilization for the camera - Z2 does not have it, too, high aperture ratio, isocell and a large sensor, partially replace it
QHD - for what?
2 GB is more than enough
metal only need hypocrites, fetishists and other inadequate

I agree QHD is definitely a gimmick no phone should have QHD screen , 2 GB is adequate for most phones but because touchwiz is so heavy maybe S5 really need 3 gb ram. Note 3 is the best phone samsung ever created and it has 3 GB ram (in my opinion it's the best phablet you can buy right now).
"metal only need hypocrites, fetishists and other inadequate". really? dude. that's just trash talk.

I'll wait and see what you say in the future if S6 come out with metal.

Sony SteadyShot is the best digital image stabilization in mobile phone camera.

If i'm mistaken S5 has the same aperture as the S4 and Note 3 F2.2 and For now no one can prove it that isocell is 30% better than conventional BSI sensor at the same time Sony also claims that their Exmore RS sensor is superior than conventional BSI sensor.
Lumia 1020 and Z2 has larger sensor.

512MB is enough for kitkat but i'm not sure that 2GB is enough for samsung touchwiz especialy for multitasking + you turn on all the features.

With metal frame S5 will feels much more solid and premium.

Ofcourse it is better than OLED based screen.

In OLED (Amoled) white whiter IPS, faster response in comparison to LCD (hundreds of times better than LCD), contrast and black level is perfect (hundreds of times better than LCD), a range of colors better, colors do not mix with each other, at times less power consumption, much thinner, ideal viewing angles
Oversaturated color only old samsung displays and they are configured using the Profile

1) OLED based displays has short life span.
2) OLED based displays tend to Burn-In.

While these two problems with OLED are not solved OLED is not better than LCD don't matter what other better characteristics it has!

Samsung has fixed the burn in issue with its latest AMOLEDS..and the brightness on the S5 is again improved to the levels of LCD's.

Overall, if color calibration gets improved too (and it will, judging from the already excellent Note 3 screen), then AMOLED will be basically perfect.

BUT this LCD from Sony looks like the best LCD screen yet and is only losing in the black level category compared to AMOLED.
Both screens are brilliant and no one shouldn't have any complaints.
Kudos for Sony!
They really are serious in their intent to fight to the very top.

"Samsung has fixed the burn in issue with its latest AMOLEDS.." No they don't until this day any OLED display will have shorter life span than LCD.
