The Nexus 5 will feel more responsive than the S5, but the S5 is still VERY fast and snappy. When you use those two devices one after the other, you will feel a difference.
since you don't really mind that much about camera, i won't mention that the Galaxy S5 has a far superior camera (woops :P )

but the Galaxy S5 has a wayyyyyy better battery life.

Really depends how deep your pockets are and if you are willing to spend the extra money for IP67, removable battery, longer battery life.

Music quality through headphone jack should not be a noticeable difference.
And yes Nexus 5 will get quicker updates, so that might also be a reason to get a Nexus 5 if you care about fast updates.

Also if you need expandable storage, that is something the S5 provides that the Nexus 5 does not.

M8 if you like the slippery metal body. Sense 6 is more responsive too. better dark light photos

S5 has a higher megapixel camera so it captures more detail when there is sufficient light. Water and dust resistant, removable battery. Hardware keys. Non of that locked bootloader S-On crap, but there is Knox instead...

Also comes down to preference if you want AMOLED or LCD. LCD provides accurate colours, while AMOLED produces more vibrant and saturated colours with true black

I was in the same position as you but there was some reasons I went with the galaxy S5 like the fingerprint scanner. I find it works brilliantly for my thumb print, I registered my thumb at 3 different angels and it works perfectly. The S5 is water and dust resistant which means you won't be worried about the rain damaging your phone. Swappable battery also means when the battery breaks its not an expensive job sending it to the manufacturer, you can just bye a new one. The camera also captures a lot of detail and I find the photos to be really good quality (when the light is right anyway), also the user interface is a lot nicer on the S5 and with a custom rom it is very fast.

I find that the S5 personally is better because you can have the higher security, better camera and it is still a very good phone. If you can wait then maybe wait for the updated Galaxy S5 (prime or F series) as it will have a metal case, bigger resolution screen and more ram too.

S5 battery is way superior. Camera too.

Nexus 5 is faster in some cases thanks to being pure Android. Touchwiz is considerably heavier. Multitasking is better in the N5.

G900H has a Wolfson chip for audio which are better in specs compared to the Snapdragon's DAC, the difference could be minimal. Even the 801 has a great DAC.

S5 also has USB Audio capability out of the box.

You gonna post every day the same question with a different device? seriously... Choose something and be happy with it. Although right now would be a terrible time to get a new phone.
By the time you finally decide onto something there will be an S5 Prime, M8 plus, LG G3 and Nexus 6...

I've moved from the Nexus 5 to the Galaxy S5 and do not regret the update at all.
