Samsung Galaxy S5 vs. Apple iPhone 5S: which is better?

"An enriched life." This is not the catchphrase from Spike Jonze's latest film, "Her", but the slogan used by Samsung to praise its latest addition: the Galaxy S5.After more than 63 million S4s sold per year last, the South Korean hopes to put the cover back and bury its competitor of always, Apple.
