The wait is finally over. Samsung’s Galaxy S5 has been unveiled. We posted our in-depth hands-on preview of the Galaxy S5 and interestingly, the phone was not what we expected following months of rumors that pointed to a quad HD display and other new features like an eye scanner. It’s still a solid effort from Samsung that improves upon the foundation laid by its predecessors though, and it avoids the continued build up of “feature spam” that had plagued Samsung’s Galaxy S4.

Following the phone’s unveiling, we’ve seen a number of blogs compare the Galaxy S5 to just about every other flagship phone out there, including the Galaxy S4, the HTC One, the Nexus 5, the LG G Pro 2 and plenty more. We have even seen some blogs compare the Galaxy S5 to Apple’s iPhone 6, which won’t even exist for at least another 5 months.

Some of these comparisons are fairly comprehensive, and others are completely and utterly useless. One of the simplest and most interesting we’ve seen thus far, however, comes from PhoneArena, which used its size comparison tool to compare every Galaxy S model Samsung has launched to date.

As phablets have grown more popular over time thanks to Samsung’s various supersized smartphone lines, it’s eye-opening to see how gigantic Samsung’s non-phablet flagship phone has gotten over the years. The Galaxy S5 is the biggest yet, and we’ve now come to a point where Samsung’s smartphones and phablets are melding into a single group of gigantic phones.

The graphic comparing the sizes of each of Samsung’s five Galaxy S generations follows below.
