The S5 is simply too expensive for South Africa.

I suspect sales of S4 units to increase a lot once the S5 launches on 11 April 2014.

Looks like the iTards are right again, Samsung is copying Apple. Copying their ludicrous pricing that is.

It is affordable on contract. I see many people going for the S5.

Well it makes a lot more sense for me to stay on Vodacom it seems.

It might be a launch special of some kind. The dealbook shows that SGS5 with Smart S, M, and L contracts get 250MB additional data.

What parallel universe have I been living in where people are saying this is too expensive on contract? Pricing is much the same as what I got on my S3 two years ago and is only R20 more than what I would pay for the Note 3 or Lumia 1520 with MTN. I know every phone being expensive does not justify it but I am not sure why people thought they'd get the latest phone for any cheaper.

Pre ordered with this:
Vodacom Smart S + 1GB R549 1474MB 75 200

Seems to be the best deal all round for this phone.

Go looks at what's to offer currently from LG and Sony and you'll see why forumites are calling the S5 ludicrously expensive.

More like ludicrously expensive plastic.

What about Virgin Mobile pricing ? Surely they can now unveil their contract pricing!


How much was the Samsung S3/4 deal with FNB for first time account holders wasn't it R299 per month

Not bad... but with MTN I can get it for R489 (300MB + 100 minutes + 100 SMS) and add 1GB for R90 = R579, so much of a muchness really ;)
