Well... can you resize the Samsung Galaxy S5 keyboard? No. Yes. Depends...

You cannot resize the SAMSUNG keyboard that is probably what is enabled out of the box.
You can, however, resize the Google keyboard. If it doesn't come preinstalled on your SGS5, you can download it from the Google Android Play Store. Once in use, hit the "1,2,3" key on that keyboard, and you will find the resize option. Swiftkey and a number of other 3rd party keyboards for Android can also be resized.

The Samsung keyboard has some nifty features though - and I do not mean its frequently becried inaccuracy :p
No, it is actually quite useful at times. One thing up YOUR alley may be the fact that you can detach it from the bottom of the screen. Floating Keyboard. You can drag it to anywhere on the screen. To do that:

Moreover: once 'floating' the Samsung keyboard is a little bit smaller.
