The fact that it'll probably be the least ****ty camera on an android phone. Samsung generally has the best cameras on android phones so it's good that the S 5 will have that larger sensor. The new AF system is a bonus, too.

I have absolutely zero hope for the likes of Sony and HTC in that regard. Not even an iota. Poor software processing and algorithms will mean that the large sensor on the Z2 will be a waste and HTC got away with murder with the **** they tried to pull of with the HTC One.

Plus the camera!
+1 on that! Anytime I get to 10% just put on that ultra power saving mode and you're probly good for at least a few more hours! And I'm sure the awesome devs here will find a way to mod it and such!
