Nfc is overrated and a security risk. I already posted a link in here that backs up my opinion.
I had the latest and greatest droid phone with nfc and i prefer the i5 by a mile. Of course i dont get super techy with my phones, so constantly flashing roms and tweaking files was not my thing.
I also poasted months ago that flash was over and people could not wrap their minds around that.
Its done. Move on to html5.
