Just go to dial pad and type *#1234# and check whether CSC is I9500ODDBMEA or I9500ODDAMDK
if it shows I9500ODDAMDK then you have got one more update i.e I9500ODDBMEA this is the latest firmware.
The first update will around 50 to 60mb hope what you have updated now which pops in notification will be latest update which is very big file around 350mb

Its your discretion.
Don't compare XperiaZ with S4
HTC one and Iphone5 are ok for S4 competitor.
I had HTC one x+ for a week in HTC you won't get regular updates like samsung.Just check in your area for HTC service whether service is good because they should not make you wait for a weeks for small repairs(For speaker issue HTC made me to wait for a week).
Iphone5 is good ios7 coming next fall.but without jailbreak it nothing just sucks.Now apple are very clever add patches for jailbreak last ios is 6.1.2 for jailbreak check in evasion web for status about jailbreak.
But samsung S4 you can root you can update or downgrade the firmware.next one year this hardware is more than enough for any updates.Regular update from samsung.Lots of service center.Thats why i chose S4

Already we got update in india its very stable no heat issue and we can move apps to SDcard and battery back up is excellent. I was not waiting for OTA update just downloaded from sammobile.com and installed through odin 3 please check your country code then download
More than that i have rooted my S4 and removed all bloatware like playbook,shealth,tripadvisor,story album,play movies
Now my internal memory is slightly increased and now my ram is out of 1.82GB 768mb only used so my S4 never gets hot.

u will get unmatched processing power under the hood, great screen, awesome camera and amazing features.
if u know how to use it, u will be drooled on it.
don't care about lags or heating. they are very minor now and more or less be solved after next update as samsung constantly churns out updates. this is best thing about samsung, it takes care of its customers and gives latest version of android to you.
u can check my mini user experiance in page 16 or 17 here.
