    You're confusing specs and features. The average person wants apps and features. Features like an FFC. What they don't care about are specs like gigahertz and ram. Specs and features are two totally different things.
    True. Although I still think that the 800 has enough draw cosmetically to bring people to the platform, without the FFC.

    Whether or not a front facing camera matters is down to the individual.

    I'm planning to move to the 800, having been an iPhone owner for the last few years (yeah, I'm a switcher!). I currently have the iPhone 4, which of course does have a FFC - do I use it? Almost never - and on the rare occasions I did, it was absolutely for gimmicky reasons.

    Some people do use FFC though, so if that's important, then maybe it will be a deal breaker for those users. For everyone else though, I'd say: don't let tech blogs dictate to you which features you should care about! Ask yourself what's really important to you as a user, and make the decision based on what you'd really use.

    Battery access too, is questionable. It remains to be seen how this phone holds up in the real world - heavy users are always going to find themselves wanting to carry a charger or spare battery around, and as with the iPhone, there are probably going to be battery packs you can plug into the charger port.

    Looking forward to getting my hands on the 800!
