Is it? I thought phone price (regardless of type of phone) is dependant of your mobile price plan?

No, if you go for 700mins smartsurf plan, iphone 5 16gb comes for ZERO dollar where as for the same plan Galaxy S3 or some other android phones will cost you 198+ dollars !!!

If you do an early recontract between 12-21 months of your contract, you need to pay $300 if you're on an iPhone contract and only $200 for non iPhone contract
