    Default Re: which one

    You can't go wrong with either one. My wife has the S5 and it's a good idea phone. I'm just not into Samsung products. Z2 has front dual speakers and is noticeably louder by default. I feel the camera is much better than S5 but it could be a tie in some eyes. 3gb RAM on Z2. No Qi option available for Z2 and no I blaster if those matter to you, however Z2 has magnetic connect for charging. And dock. Next best thing to wireless. Especially the magnetic charging dock I got for the car. Z2 will support PS3 controllers.

    Z2 had better build although the glass back is worrisome for drops. I like the Z2 over the S5 but I also like the M8 over the S5 as well. One thing that's wonderful is the Z2 unlocked and carrier free.

    I picked up a Z2 Monday after going back and forth between these two devices. The reasons were that I wanted a water resistant device and I think the Z2 is better suited for this vs the S5 which has a removable back. The Z2 had a huge battery and last all day plus some, camera is superb as are the speakers. The first time I played music on the Z2 it startled me because it was so loud. lol! Finally it is unlocked and bloat free. I returned my G3 a few weeks ago for among other things the insane amount of bloat and stuff I do not want. The S5 also takes up too much of the 16GB storage with a lot of features I would never use.

    The things in the S5 favor is the size and weight. The Z2 is a big, heavy device due to construction and there is no doubt that it is more fragile. If you are drop prone or hard on your phones the S5 may be a better choice. The first thing I did with my Z2 was but protectors on front and back and case it and use a neoprene sleeve! lol!

    Kind of off topic, but may I ask what magnetic charging dock you are using for the car?
