Price of cheapest Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone with 8-cores falls below £470

We cannot help but notice how far the price of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is going down although this time around, we managed to pick it (virtually) from an eBay retailer rather than a high street one.

UKBNS sells the GT-I9500 model, which is the non-LTE version with a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa system-on-chip, for £470 including free delivery and 470 Nectar points. The smartphone is not on sale in the UK officially as Samsung (and its partners) preferred to push the LTE version (which is powered by the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC).

But this particular item is still covered by a 12-months warranty and is brand new. Other than the lack of 4G and the different SoC, this Galaxy S4 is not different from the one you'll find in high street stores.

It comes with a 5in 1,920 x 1,080 pixel Super AMOLED HD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2,600mAh battery, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, up to 17 hours talk time, a front facing 2-megapixel camera and a thickness of less than 8mm.
