Despite Apple’s lawyers claims, it is hard to imagine a different and better hardware design for touch panel, pocketable smartphones. Flat, thin, rectangular, rounded corners, light, rigidity bevels, …
But from what I have seen of people trying to learn to use Samsung, particularly if not well acquainted with PCs, they have problems with inconsistency in the user interface look and feel of supplied and marketplace apps. Part of it is flexibility in Android, and its evolution of versions, but Samsung also add their own divergences.
Some engineering improvements of the S5, such as strengthening and waterproofing do not seem to have received adequate approval by reviewers.
Easy plugin of charged, travelling extra batteries rather than skimping use and fear of bad connections and a flat battery would suit some users.

It’s a lot harder to do something new than to copy.
They need to develop Tizen: at some point, customers will catch on to the fact that Android’s ‘privacy’ agreement explicitly allows Google to log customers’ calls (incl which numbers they called) and locations, and to record any personal information on the phone (i.e., things like pictures, addresses, personal notes, etc). The NSA would be jealous.

Samsung’s product launch execution has been consistently bad. The company proudly boasted that the Galaxy S5 would be released in four colors and both 16GB and 32GB versions. Now, a month after launch, we still have only black and white models, no 32GB variant from any U.S. carrier, and utter silence as to the fate of those missing models. That gives potential buyers who have been holding out for, say, a blue 32GB Galaxy S5, time to consider other phones including the soon-to-be-launched flagships from LG and OnePlus.
