    I'm really hoping that Samsung does something new and delivers unquestionable build quality AND premium build materials. They know that's what the consumers want and, to me, there's just no good excuse anymore (not that there ever was) to not get the S5 perfect in these regards. Say what you want about the iPhone 5S but only those in denial would say it doesn't look and feel like a premium piece of equipment. There's no reason the S5 can't surpass it in that regard.

    Well I must be in denial then. And I will definitely say what I want about the iphone. Its a great phone, but I DO NOT like the look of it. In terms of Physical appearance its nothing special to me at all. And just because a bunch of tech journalist say otherwise I will not join the bandwagon. Like I said the "finish" and by that I mean materials use are definitely better than many. Including the s4 that I have but I don't like the look of it . And how do you know that's what the consumers want??

    Well, I keep reading that in different tech forums so I infer that's at least what some consumers want. I think I've also read one or two journalists mention it as well. Yet I have never read anyone say they wanted plastic. You could change that though.

    And that's what you should have said in the first place "some" people want metal, and not generalize. To your comment about wanting plastic. I don't have to do that cause I could not give a donkey's behind what material they make it out off. As long as it has the things that I mentioned earlier.

    OP,
    As you said, you are on an Android focused page. So expect bias toward Android. Even myself... I would go for S5 because it will the Best Android phone that I can get with added benefits like removable battery.

    Never an iPhone. S5 only if it meets certain expectations as far as hardware goes. And only if it's a Google play edition.

    I've never owned an iPhone, but lets assume that my goal would be to get the latest cutting-edge "stuff" that can be found on a smartphone.

    The S5 is looking more and more like a "spec bump" phone, rather than the powerhouse with amazing features that it originally seemed to be (won't be curved, no retinal scanner, likely no fingerprint scanner, might not have a 2K screen even...). But what we do know is that Apple is gonna Bring It this year with the iPhone 6. Every other year, they try to step up their game, and despite peoples' hatred of Apple, they do it more consistently than most other companies.

    So if I had to pick right now (which is silly because we really should wait for both devices to come out), I'd go with the iPhone.

    I'm probably going to get the iPhone 6 this year and move back from Android. My Nexus devices and HTC One have been great, but eh. I think that tells you what I think of Samsung though, never going to buy another one.

    Somehow I don't think you really mean that but the sentiment is fully understood.

    I hope 1080p hasn't become something to frown at just yet.

    I've had an iphone since the first one (after they started to subsidize!), then the 4 and now the 5. I've got the itch to try an Android (wouldn't even know where to start with HTC, Samsung, etc.) and would consider the S5. Biggest thing holding me back is 1) I know how the iPhones work and am comfortable with it and 2) apps that I have on my iPhone and whether there is an Android counterpart, if I'd have to pay for it (don't mind it but it would add up). Guess I'd have to go down the list of "can't do without" apps and see where that puts me.

    I'll be converting to Android this year. I installed Kit Kat on an S4 (don't like Touch Wiz or other interfaces) and really enjoyed using stock Android while setting it up as a phone like it was my own.

    This past week I have been evaluating a Nexus 5 and have used it totally in place of my iPhone. So I have two Android phones right now, ha ha.

    It's been a success as I discovered the last piece of the required apps, LockerPro for excellent notifications, ios style.
    I tried an S2 with ICS a while back and didn't like it so stuck with Apple. Now I am digging what Android can do and no longer see the value in what Apple charge for the iPhone.

    I like the Nexus but battery life seems better on the S4 and I much prefer the menu, back and home buttons at the bottom of the screen.

    I also discovered I can't use the Nexus outside in landscape with my polarised sunglasses on as the screen disappears.

    Add removable storage and Samsung wins, the hardware race.

    I'll only be interested in a GPE version though so I'll keenly watch the announcement and see what happens with a GP edition.

    I can totally understand being android-curious. Remember though that you'll have to get your apps again and get used to the difference. That said, android can be quite fun and you can customize so much. Over the past years I've had a lot of android phones. I recently came back to iOS and glad for that move. Give android a shot, iOS will always be here when you decide to come back.
