Here are some reasons for and against both:
Samsung Galaxy
- Slightly faster
- Better battery life (in some areas)
- Better microSD storage capacity (64GB vs 32GB)
- Supports more audio formats
Sony Xperia Z
- A tad better camera quality (13.1 vs 13.0 mp camera, 2.2 vs 2.0 mp front facing camera, 443 ppi vs. 441 ppi)
- Much better build quality (metal and shit)
- Water/dust proof
- A bit lighter
They're both amazing phones and I can get a slightly better deal with the Xperia.
Someone help?

Audio formats doesn't make any difference between android phones, the specs on the S4 just mention the audio formats that it can play out of the box, you can download an app that can play way more formats for both the sony and samsung.
I prefer the Sony as the build quality is light years ahead of the horrible plastic chassis Samsung keeps using, plus the interface is quite elegant on the Xperia models, unlike the S4 which has a hideous blue and yellow colour scheme... Then again, the Samsung Galaxy phones have a tonne of features like dual capture, even if they are a bit gimmicky.
Hopefully this was helpful!

Go for the Xperia Z...it has a great design style and more durability, the front camera of xperia z has got 30 fps while the s4 has got only 20....!!
BTW I'm an Xperia user too and Samsung phones become very weak and slow after 8-10 months........but Sony works great...!!

I was suprised too by new Sony devices when I saw Xperia Z and Z Ultra (it's gigant:) ), to be honest before that I was thinking that Sony phones were crap. Theoretically on paper Galaxy S4 look stronger http://comperio.co/en/smartphones/samsung-galaxy-s4-gt-i9505-vs-sony-xperia-z.html but Xperia Z is getting better notes in reviews.
Xperia looks more solid than S4 and Sony bought me here (rest of the specs is almost the same...).
