The heartbeat sensor, for instance, is unique for the Galaxy S5, while something like the Finger Scanner can also be observed on the iPhone 5s, but in a rather different implementation.
phone apart.Samsung took the path of adding distinct functionalities, rather than shooting for superlatives like the "most", "highest", or "largest". If you want to quickly browse through all of the new features that come with the Galaxy S5, you need to look no further than the slideshow below, where we recap everything that sets the

I think they were mostly focusing on the UX.

NO, stop that, don't you go insulting band-aids like that. And they didn't focus on UX it just looks like they want to have a transition to Tizen so people can't tell the difference when they do switch. For that they seem to be dropping the ball hard. This year hopefully people will diverge out to other Android manufacturers and force these idiots at Samsung to up their game. Now I patiently await the other companies that haven't released their information yet.

Wow...this phone reminds me of a Taurus. Or better yet, a Camry.

The design ruined this phone. Hardware wise, fantastic, but it looks like Note 3, GS2 and N7 2012 somehow had a baby. Sry SS, I'll keep my boss Note 3.

13 new features and trolls still disappointed. Sony adds 1gb of ram and suddenly the Z1s2 is the king. Bunch of hypocrites.

Actually, the display is twice as better, and the chipset is newer, as well as the speakers and the 4K recording Other than that, truly agreed.

The display CAN BE SEEN from more than a single angle,smurf. the Z1's display was terrible when it comes to viewing angles,and even when both are side by side,straight viewing,the z1 in fact looks washed out About the chipset,it is indeed better,but in reality its already fast enough for all the major tasks and gaming. Z1's speaker: is it on? Z2's speaker: oh! it works pretty well (theorically) So this one should be the original Z1,because all the major flaws were corrected.

+1 When Sony makes a phone with 2gb of ram: "It's already enough. Who the hell needs 3gb of ram on a phone anyway?" Now when Samsung does it: "Samsuck fails. The Sony Z2 is way better with 3gb of ram."
