Since you are interested in comparing the two phones, here is a comparative explanation:

1. Screen - iPhone's screen is 85% of S5. But still it is smaller than S5.
2. Build quality - iPhone 6 excels with its aluminium uni body and rounded edges. S5 is plasticky and misses on that feel of high end phone.
3. Screen quality -S5's AMOLED screen gives clear blacks and rich colors , while iPhone excels in color accuracy and viewing angles.
4. Camera - iPhone is a winner here. It reproduces better colors. Also iPhone offers better low light images than S5.
5. Battery - Battery life is almost similar in both. But S5 has a ultra power saving option that turns a 10% battery into a 24 hour long run. Besides, it has a removable battery unlike iPhone.
6. Water resistance - This is a plus point for Galaxy S5 as iPhone lacks it.

So it all depends on your preferences. If you want premium build, great camera and fingerprint sensor? Go for iPhone. Want longer battery, bigger screen and water resistance? Opt for S5. Choice Is yours.
