S2 & Note were nice
S3 & Note2 were ugly
S4 & Note3 are nice
S5 & ... are ugly!
BUT IT s JUST my PERSONAL opinion cause i don't like round design!
None of the other vendors are exactly better at updates, the Nexus-line is sole in that respect. And some Samsung software are actually much better than the pure Google experience ie the cam/camcorder.
Samsung, as being popular, has very good AOSP dev support and a very large modding community which makes Samsung a safe bet for those who likes messing around with the software on the device
To be realistic s5 is a good device with Samsung plugging every loop hole that's present with the previous version, you get
1. Updated touchwiz
2. Water proof
3. Brightest led screen ever made
4. Isocell camera module
5. Updated processor as per Industry standard
6. Somewhat bigger battery
7. All the goodies present with previous galaxy devices.
8. 128gb sd card support
The design is as same as s4,the bigger bezels are the compromise Samsung made for making it water proof. We all know Samsung is not going to have a super duper design.
The phone will not satisfy or justify s4 and note 3 users, apart from them it should satisfy other users to be realistic, at the end of the day it's upto the personal preferences
