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 :)
