Crazy high price in Australia for the new iPhones. Why? Is Australia subsidising the USA market. I would rather buy a Blackberry Z10.

So I have a question; which is probably going to annoy a few people, (if you want to troll or whatever, i'm not talking to you).

Why do people compare the iPhone 5/s to other flagships, eg S4 or HTC one? Of coarse they are in the same price range, I get that, but they shouldn't be. I mean just consider every single spec of the Iphone 5 (or s) and it hardly compares withe the sammy or htc, in fact barring the resolution it's barely in the same class as the old galaxy s2... Am I right? Or am I missing something?
