Head-to-Head: Samsung Galaxy S5 vs. Apple iPhone 5S

The Screen

Dear Samsung: The S4's 5-inch screen was large enough. Please stop growing your glass; we almost can't hold it in one hand. The S5 puts out the same 1,920 x 1,080 as its predecessor, but the larger 5.1-inch LCD drops it from 441 ppi to 432, which is still almost 100 more pixels per inch than iPhone. The 4-inch iPhone's Retina display has a pixel density of 326 ppi and puts out a resolution of 1,136 x 640, just right for showing videos at a 16:9 aspect ratio. Incidentally, the Snapdragon supports Ultra HD video for capture and playback.
