No one would know. Usually price drops happen when a few newer devices come out and/or the phone has been out for sometime.

Should have bought it during Christmas when it was $500 on Tab. Now you'll probably be waiting until after the S5 is released.

You can take a look at the used market for S4s around the $400 range.

I think the S4 is a little overrated anyway. Nice screen and all but Touchwiz slows down the phone more than it should considering the high-end specs, the design is too reminiscent of the S3, and the plastic feels cheap.

Yes I was wondering about that. The HTC one does also look very appealing. Mmm

The same processor is powering the G2 and Note 3. The difference is the extra software/features packed into the G2 and Note 3 that make them "feel" not as fast as the Nexus 5.

I'm with Jonathan with hating the S4 plastic build. Not because it's plastic, but because it's too shiny, slippery, flexible, and creaky.

But I'm not going to tell you not to buy it. There are plenty of satisfied S4 owners out there. But, with the S5's impending release, I'd advise you to hold off until that one hits the shelves which will substantially lower the S4's market value.
