Can’t Wait for Apple’s iPhone 6? Buy Samsung Galaxy S5 Instead

Technically you can’t buy the Galaxy S5 for a few more days, but that’s close enough to sneak onto this list. When Samsung’s new flagship smartphone hits U.S. carriers on April 11, you can bet it’s going to challenge last years record-setting Galaxy S4 sales pace.

While the iPhone 6 is rumored to sport a 4.7-inch display (there’s a possibility of a larger, phablet-sized version as well), the Galaxy S5 sports a 5-inch display with full HD resolution. It includes a fingerprint scanner similar to the iPhone 5s Touch ID, and one-ups it with a built-in heart rate sensor.

The battle for top-selling smartphone from the previous generation came down to the Galaxy S4 and the iPhone 5s. In 2014, the battle will undoubtedly be between the Galaxy S5 and the iPhone 6.

If you want something bigger than an iPhone 5s but don’t want to wait for the iPhone 6, this one is well worth considering as an option.
