So I have an iPhone 4s, my upgrade is in February, and I was thinking about getting the Galaxy S4, good idea? Or should I wait.

The Galaxy Note 3 is a big device compared to the iPhone 4s , so it will be a big change. You may be better off with the Samsung Galaxy S4 or the HTC One as both phones are loaded and have great cameras.

The Note is pretty awesome, the handwriting recognition and included stylus really add a lot of functionality to Android. I really like my HTC One though, and I will gladly second that recommendation.

The galaxy s4 and the htc one will probably get outdated soon enough. like maybe a month after you get your phone. if i were you i would wait until a newer model comes out or buy something newer like the lg g2 or anything that recently came out and you are comfortable with. its a big decision that you have to stick with for 2 years if you are in a contract so think carefully and i guess try to be different :)

The only way you can move up from the HTC One is the One Max, and the S4 would be the Note 3, and the LG G2 is being replaced by the G2 Flex later this year.

I would wait. but if you really need the phone get something that wont be replaced anytime soon or the resell value will drop. if you dont care about it buy an s4 or a 5s or the htc one :) they are all fantastic phones :)

Let's face it the way smartphones are now they are packed with features and capabilities , buying one now will not be that much of a draw back since waiting will only give you a few new features and possibly one missed OS update. The Android phones will be eligible for Kit Kat and the new OS after that would most likely not be ground breaking.
A two year contract would put you at the time for major updates (if any) and certainly not inhibit your interactions with others feature wise. Most things to use are Apps anyway.

I'm not a very patient person, so I would most likely like to have a new phone by the end of February, I am leaning towards the S4, something other than a apple device considering I already have a macbook, ipad, an iphone, and an ipod touch, I'm looking for something with a different OS. Would getting the S4 be a huge set back? or even the Note 3?

The S4 or Note3 would not be a setback and they will be able to be upgraded to a new OS so you would have a relevant device for some time. Mainly it's the apps that make things interesting so those will always be coming out.

Dude same thing for the nexus 5. Its cheaper and it has stock android kitkat. no samsungs built in app bs or anything like that. I would buy the nexus 5 and it looks nicer too and it can get updates before everyone else.
