If you have patience then wait for iphone5s or 6 around May or June ......
Iphone 5 got nice camera lens if you like shooting photo then post at your fb/instagram etc , Galaxy S4 great performance and a big, bright screen and 13mp rear camera but Im not really sure about quality of the photo

I dont think iphone 5s/6 will be coming out May/June. It takes time to reach Malaysia. Not really that soon. I think it will be around Oct.
On the other hand, I would suggest TS go for Iphone 5.

If you have ipad, get the s4.
Since all iOS apps can work on ipad.
You won't lose anything, and can happily explore android.
Android lots of nice thing to play if u interested to read about rooting.

If u r not a tablet user and only phone user,
Then depend on your personality.
iPhone 5 software wise 100% same on your iPhone 4 if ur iPhone is running same iOS version.
Jailbreak tweaks will work more smoothly due to faster processor.

But if u bored with iOS, wana try new thing, get s4 la, it's one of the best 2 phone out there. Almost a tie with htc one.

Just wait for Apple WWDC 2013 first on June 10 till 14. If there is any news about their upcoming iphone, you can wait first for it to be launched in Malaysia.

Is hard to give solid advice if we don't know your requirements. But from your limited info given, get the iPhone 5.coz u have an iPhone already and you will get immediate benefit from the same ecosystem the 5 offers.
Having said that, it's a fact that the s4 has way more features than iPhone 5.

Read some reviews, watch youtube videos and decide which one you like more. Follow your heart.

My advise, if you want the latest features and catch some attention, then it will be the S4.

If you want familiarity with your iPhone 4 and don't want to miss your app collection, then go with the iPhone 5.

so many features s4 has. but why oh why can they just copy ios's application backup. in other words, make titanium backup part of samsung/android.

samsung is famous for gimmicky features. i now look at my s3. the only samsung unique features that i really use:
1. smart stay
2. multiwindow
the rest are truly gimicky. but believe it or not, i am always drawn to gimicky features coz its "different" and cool. and i am addicted to anything different.

Get the S4.

since you are a ipong4 user, you won't feel much difference using the ipong5, alot things remained unchanged, just the screen now become longer.

and even if you get ip5 now, ip5s gonna cum in about 4 months+

ip5s also will be same dimension as ip5, just upgrade processor/ram/camera etc but still looks identical, so like wth la. just get the s4

I don't even use those. My usage is more on the hardware, like the excellent 8MP snapper, GLONASS, 4.8" screen, etc.

But yeah those software features are interesting, though.

See you are using for fun or more toward business use...
If you are just a normal user that using phone then maybe you can try those new feather in S4 since is more attractive and new...
But if you wan steady usage, then confirm is iphone5...
Why choose apple then other product?
1. Smooth and steady... ( Less Lag And Hang ) if you didn't jailbreak...
2. More secure when you use for banking and personal usage... ( but not cant jailbreak )...
people will only complain on hang and lag after jailbreak because your iPhone already have virus...
Apple product all come with 4 layer of firewall ( when haven't jailbreak ),
but after jailbreak, you break the system and the firewall gone, that why it will come out like android with hang and lag issue because have infected by virus...
So personally i recommend iPhone because i am a hand phone re-seller and mostly of the people that selling phone actually also using apple product...
So up to you to decide... ^^

here some advices:
-try them out both phones on their stores before you purchase any of them.just don't listen too much from others.
-android is different from IOS. You may feel uncomfortable when using it due to the different way of implementing. People say lag after using for several months but they didn't know that android support more in multitasking.But with newest android version(4.2.2) + quad/octa-core + 2GB RAM,i doubt it will be lag on galaxy s4.
-photo of galaxy s4 is at least a bit better than photo of iphone 5.
-material?can't say more.same plastic is on galaxy s4 and premium material is on iphone 5.
-5 inch or 4 inch screen?your choice.bigger screen although is better on daily using but it may cause uncomfortable on someone.overall screen quality on both phones are great but more pixel on galaxy s4 may improve a little more detail on screen.
-many new sensors on galaxy s4 thus many new gestures for galaxy s4 which no other smartphones have.check them out "smart pause","air view","air gesture","smart scroll".They might be gimmick for someone but i would say why not having some special features?
-galaxy s4 support micro sd card which can help your phone add some extra storage.
it is really up to personal requirement and opinion.All i can say that both are really great phones.Remember to try them out! biggrin.gif

In term of built quality, Yes.. but in term of feature? Are U sure HTC One/Iphone 5 better than S4?

My 1st priority to buy a phone is a feature lying in the phone coz I'm not using aluminium case to make a call, play a game, screen display & etc. Some people believe, to determine a "PREMIUM" phone base on built quality but I'm sure I not one of them...

What can you derived from apple fan boys? I am a new user of android crossing over from IOS. Ip5 is a damn boring phone. Still prefer my 4s! Now with my new baby s4. Typing text is such an ease with android .

Before the release, it was confirmed that S4 would come in two flavors for Malaysia. So we're fortunate:

Yeah I don't believe how backdated ios keyboard really is. No predictive next word . No multilingual on the fly. No swype. Utterly boring and inefficient. But if s4 no lte, then that's a bummer. For now don't buy s4 until the lte version is out
