This is true, but the S5 stitches together multiple images of different focal point to minimize such errors, so it's a bit more advanced than single-image blur apps. It's okay for about 1080p.

The blur effect is fine and looks ok. I would be happy with that if needed.

If these pictures are true representations of what we can expect from the GS5 then CrApple does have something to worry about. That camera is equal to what CrApple pushes.
. . . Moving to AT&T. see ya Verizon.

My wife uses a 5S. From what I've seen Apple has nothing to worry about. The 5S is a easy and ultra reliable shooter with great results. That's not going to change. IOS 7.1 will improve it marginally as well.

All the S5 has done is levelled the field. Some features will put it ahead. But it's the classic where the 5S is now 6 months old. So one would expect the S5 to be better until the next iPhone.

And really Samsung should have done more. Nokia Lumia's have OIS and more. .. Samsung should have not levelled but wiped the floor with every smartphone.

So looks like they're doing equal well then? 6 to 7 months to go for an iphone 6. After iphone's release, about 6 more months for GS6 launch (which will hopefully be better performing than iphone of that time). This goes on and on and on. Apple taking 6 months to launch a better product. Samsung taking another 6 and so on. .

Only if the looks and build quality was on par to an iPhone.

At first sight the Samsung's camera specification in the official press release looks, apart from the mandatory megapixel increase, not particularly exciting. However, digging a little deeper reveals that the phone's 16 million pixels are now distributed across a 1/2.6-inch sensor. This is by no means a large sensor, after all most consumer level compact cameras and the Sony Xperia Z1 and Z2 come with a 1/2.3-inch sensor, the Nokia Lumia 1020 even with a much bigger 1/1.5-inch variant, but it's larger than the tiny 1/3-sensor in the Galaxy S4 and a step into the right direction.

We have no official word from Samsung yet but from the Exif-data of sample images that are floating around the web it appears the S5's camera comes with an F2.2 aperture and 31mm equivalent focal length. Like its predecessor it does not offer an optical image stabilization system but the 4K video mode gains at least digital stabilization. The reflector integrated LED-flash should allow for wider illumination angles and there is a new Refocus software feature that allows you to change focus points after you've taken the shot, similar to a feature that we've already seen on the latest Nokia models.

Also very interesting is the phase detection autofocus that according to Samsung allows AF acquisition in 0.3 seconds. We will only find out how the system exactly works and how good it is once we hold a reviewable device in our hands but for now we assume the S5's AF is a hybrid contrast/phase detect system that follows similar principles to the ones used in mirrorless system cameras such as the Sony A6000 or the Olympus OM-D EM-1.

Not strictly a photography feature but certainly useful to mobile photographers and other users alike is the Galaxy S5's water-resistant housing (IP67 standard) which means you can, just like with the Sony Xperia Z-series, keep snapping even when the weather turns nasty.

I have owned the last 4 iphones and sold them all within months of getting them and gone back to Android. I just fine the OS lacking and the camera on the GS5 is equal to what Apple does today.

About outdoor pics, the result is quite the same. On S5 it's a little bit like S4, less aggressive sharpening algorithm, so the picture looks "less sharp" in 100%, but when crop we can see the details are more true to life and less noisy. Color on the flower pic is much better. I think it's a little bit better in dynamic range, but because this is not an HDR photo (Samsung's camera normally has the lighter HDR mode) and the weather is not very favorable.
But I can see clearly the improvement in the indoor pic. I hate the agressive noise reduction of Samsung phones (from S3, Note 2 to S4, Note 3). A prefer a little bit more noisy but more detailed. Waiting for indoor mode (or so-called Smart Stabilization mode) samples.
