This is a valid point. iPhones always had the highest price and this was a big selling point for Samsung. Nowadays, Samsung wants to compete head to head with Apple on pricing. This is a dangerous strategy because I know of many people who refuse to buy Samsung flagships phones anymore because they feel that they are not getting enough value for money. Having said that, both phones are extremely capable and it is pretty much down to personal preference whether you prefer Android or iOS and whether you are willing to wait 2 years between upgrades (I am looking at you Samsung).

Don't talk nonsense. Rand/$ is responsible to a large degree. If Orange are selling it for R12k, then imagine the cost if the Rand were around R10 to the $.

Don't forget besides the ZAR tanking Samsung themselves positioned the S6 range at a higher price point (iPhone-level) before. It ties in with their more premium metal bodies not the plastic crap of yore.

Only the mass sheeple saw it as crap. Still using the plastic cover on my note 1 and even with my old battery swelling it still works. It's the same polycarbonate material used in F1 cars and helmets.

And with metal, the phone is heavier, so if it falls...
