The S5 is noticablily bigger than the S3/S4, personally I think it's too big.

S3 - 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6 mm
S4 - 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm
S5 - 142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm
Yes, the S5 dimensions look almost identical to the Droid DNA which I had prior to the GS4. I did feel the DNA was just a little too tall, but I liked it, and it was perfectly usable. I do feel smartphones are becoming too big for one-handed use. If you can use 2 hands all the time, then Note-like phones are fine. But for me, I would appreciate a little restraint in the size going forward.
