As you can see on the above specifications, the new Galaxy smartphone has an upgraded chipset (Snapdragon 400 vs. Snapdragon 300), higher camera resolution, higher video recording capability and slightly bigger battery capacity. The S5 has also additional hardware components - the Heart Rate sensor and the Fingerprint scanner plus it is now IP67 certified.

In fairness to the S4, it has the same screen technology and resolution with its successor,  has the same amount of RAM and the same sets of connectivity features. It is also slightly slimmer (7.9mm vs. 8.1mm) and slightly lighter (130g vs. 145g). In terms of OS version, it will be upgraded soon to Android KitKat.

With that being said, do you think the Galaxy S5 is a worthy upgrade? Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.
