    Neither is any other piece of hardware at the moment. Don't sweat it.

    Yes, it will most likely get Android L.

    Android L just adds capability for Android L, it's not a requirement.

    Your Galaxy S5 will get updates for quite some time.

    Is the Snapdragon 805 64 bit?

    No it isn't. Don't let the processor limit the device choices. There are good devices on the market and the current crop will see L.

    When are carriers expected to be rolling these out?

    I've heard that Galaxy s4 (even the international version) could actually skip 4.4.3/4.4.4 and update to 5.0 once it's released. It's just rumours, though. But I'm quite sure s5 will get updated.

    Samsung could have implemented the 64 bit processor if they had a clear idea of what was going on. This is the top reason why Galaxy s5 was outsold by iPhone 5s, unfortunately.

    I highly doubt that.

    I don't think your average smartphone buyer even knows what 64-bit means. iPhones have always been the best selling phones in the US.

    Not anytime soon. It will likely release alongside any Nexus devices in October/November, and any skinned software like TouchWiz or Sense will probably start getting them early next year.

    In my country iPhones have spread in the last 2 years also, but android still holds the supremacy. Many of my friends who have 5s said they bought it for "processor speed and stuff". I think it's because of 64-bit.

    In the US yes, cuz Apple is an American company. But I'm talking about international business. I've heard that it's S5 < 5s < S4 according to the number of sold units in 1 month.

    It will, but with Touchwiz, so the performance improvement is probably negated.

    I doubt it. Most people just look at the number of cores and clock speed. The iPhone loses that, and again, the average user doesn't know the difference between 32 and 64 bit

    Well the current Samsung phones already have TouchWiz, so it'll still likely improve. TouchWiz + 64-bit > TouchWiz + 32-bit.
