Galaxy S4 comes with support for Kies, the official application for Samsung phones. Besides firmware update, contacts management, backup and recovery, the software also allows you to backup the SMS messages. If you want another solution, install SMS Backup & Restore from Play Store and export the SMS messages in XML format. You can also perform backup of the SMS messages in plain text format.
