I use Australian recommended retail prices, the site I linked to directly imports phones (mainly from Hong Kong) so the pricing is slightly different.
"Speaking to CNET Australia, Tyler McGee, vice president of telecommunications for Samsung Electronics Australia, confirmed that the S4 will be available for $899 outright. Locally, the phone will carry a quad-core Snapdragon CPU running at 1.9GHz, not the so-called "octa-core" Exynos 5 processor."
Because people persist in claiming Apple products are "way overpriced", when similar products are priced in the same ballpark.
The Sony and HTC offer better value than the S4, as they offer similar performance at a lower cost.
i.e. why does the LTE enabled S4 with off the shelf parts from Qualcomm and Sony cost more than an iPhone 5?
