Hardware choice will always be a compromise. In this case it's largly between 
performance, price, size and energy usage. There will always be 
something 'better', a faster CPU (even though will use more energy), a bigger 
battery (even though it does increase size) etc... 
Ofcourse FIC could be building a custum phone tailored to our individual 
needs, but that would be kind of (well, hugely) expensive.

At the current price it looks like this is a good combination of components, 
and I do like the current price :)
