Looking at the table, it seems that the Galaxy S5 and the Xperia Z2 are actually neck to neck. The LG G Pro also offers some high-end specs, but it seems just too large with its 5.9 inch display. Comparing the S5 with the S4, it has certainly gained some weight and size. To be honest, apart from the improvement in specs, the S5 looks way better than the S4. The S5 is expected to hit stores in March and we expect Samsung to launch Exynos version of the smartphone in India rather than the Snapdragon version just like they did with the Galaxy S4.
