    Default What phone device is on its way that will be superior to the Galaxy S5?

    I have my current cell phone for almost 4 yrs and anything will be an upgrade, but I might as well get the best one even if I have to wait a bit longer for it to release. Or else just settle with the S5.

    LG and Sony just released a handful of phones, and in my opinion, the S5 is better. We'll have to wait to see what HTC does with the next one. That or the S5 will likely be the best phones available at their release dates

    Either the new HTC One or Project Ara.

    I prefer to use the 3 years old 1ghz single core Galaxy S over any iPhones, but again, I prefer Android.

    Within the first half of 2014, most of the new phones that come out will be on par, more or less, in terms of specs. So as far as what will be superior, it'll depend on what you want as well as your carrier. While I think the Xperia Z2 is better than the S5, the Xperia Z2 may not be on your carrier. You can wait one more month to see what HTC does, but the HTC One successor will probably be very different than the S5, which again makes me wonder what you want out of the phone - specifically if you want a removable battery and microSD card slot.

    I don't think that there will be anything that is superior to the S5. There probably will be a lot of phones that have slightly different feature sets that may make them more appealing. I like the looks of the LG G Pro 2. I haven't seen the new iPhone and HTC One obviously. But they may come with some great things as well.

    To be honest, I don't think that the Galaxy S line is the flagship line anymore. I believe that the Note series have taken that over. The Note line has the better specs for each edition.

    The Note line and S line aren't meant to overlap. They have 2 flagships, each series is king for around 6 months while the other is released

    I agree. The fingerprint sensor is a gimmick and doesn't always work (as shown in hands-on videos). The heart rate sensor is an even bigger gimmick. Take these away and there's nothing "special" about it. Simple fact is that we hit a wall with smartphone HW advancements. 64-bit wouldn't be noticeable to end users so who cares? All the LTE/GSM bands it covers is nice but again, end users don't really care (Samsung is the one who benefits by producing less models).
    The only way to improve and differentiate at this point is to improve on build quality/materials and design. Samsung failed on all aspects. Yes, they made it water resistant but it still looks like crap... fake chrome trim and cheap looking back. I also don't think they should have made it even bigger. The bezels could have been smaller (see LG 2).
    So yeah, I don't know why anyone would upgrade from GS4 or maybe even GS3. I was expecting a radical but good change moving to better materials and on-screen buttons. Buttons not a big deal but everything else I said is a big deal to me.
    Nexus 5 is a no brainier at this point.

    There will always be better phones coming if you wait.

    Personally, I think any phone that doesn't have a heavy skin like TouchBloat, Sense, or whatever-LG-calls-their-skin will be superior to the GS5.

    Exactly. We are not talking about iPhone here. In Android world there's always a new phone a few months away.

    I think that a lot of people are waiting for that. I thought it was one of the best devices last year. A refresh would definitely be welcome.

    It was the best device last year IMO. If I had known what it would be like, I would've gone two more months with my old phone to get it

    I wonder if consumers are going to be wary about getting the refresh this year now that Lenovo owns Motorola?

    A lot of people were, but I still think they can make a better phone than the other big name OEMs

    IMO, the current Moto X, HTC One, Nexus , LG G2 and a few others are all superior to the Samsung Galaxy S5 for what I want out of a phone, not to mention the refreshes expected in Q2 and Q3 to the former two of that list. I haven't seen enough of the new HTC to make an educated guess about it's relative value, but no matter what I'm not expecting to see anything this year that's leaps and bounds ahead of anything else. It's going to come down to very subjective design language and software preferences for just about everyone, unless there is a specific sought after feature, like OIS for the camera, etc.

    I am more inclined to think that this device and MAYBE the next one were in the pipeline from Google. In other words, I believe the next Moto X (whatever it may be called) was approved by Google. After that device, anything goes.

    Devices: Current: Nexus 5, Moto X, Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0); Retired: Galaxy S2 (Epic 4G Touch); Traded: Galaxy S3
