Price seems to be high, in my opinion. This is the official HTC Butterfly, however. Other seller from grey market will surely offer cheaper one. But, nonetheless the specs of the HTC Butterfly Philippines are worth every penny.
And either cheap or not for you, other smartphone/phablet options are still present. One main rival is the Sony Xperia Z & Xperia ZL.
