Some things to consider :
Amoled as opposed to TFT (true blacks and supposed lower power consumption for dark screens)
S-Cover possibility : Intelligent cases that can unlock the phone on opening and show information through a small window.
Air View : allows one to wave a hand over the locked phone for it to show briefly the latest notifications.
Stuff that samsung put in their touchwiz. Coming from an xperia myself I found that sony have become boring with always the same look.
An excellent video player - I don't bother with anything else it even has very good DNLA.
the Camera software has nice touches over the sony I tested.
The software is updated regularly. I only got one upgrade on my old Xperia to android 4.1.
Perhaps the camera in the sony is better.
Not glass. the S4 plastic but isn't that supposed to be tougher ?
Samsung have put in place what appears to be an e-fuse to detect rooting... This is a dealbreaker for some but mine's stock and I'm happy with mine. Sony appear to be more leniant to those who root their devices.
Try the SGS4 - ya might like it. Ya might not
Running a Samsung Galaxy S4 i9505 on standard 4.4 and a Nexus 7 2012 on rooted standard 4.4.
