This is definitely true. They ALWAYS leave something out. One of the bigger reasons they are vast amount of monies in the bank.

Not only that but the front facing camera absolutely blows chunks and it doesn't have a rear-facing camera either.

I'd gladly pay the extra $150 for what I feel is a better overall design (again, minus the aluminum back) from Apple with features that will certainly come in handy.
Lack of flash is Google's doing of removing it from Android OS entirely, mind you you still can get some apps that'll allow you to run flash websites on it.
