You really can’t please everybody all of the time with one item, but that is often a good thing. What makes this good is that it calls for a wider diversity of products with different feature sets. Think about it for a second; when you are shopping for a product you most likely find yourself coming down to “product A has XYZ, while product B has JKL at the same price point”.

I have heard many people say that both products should simply have all of the features, but that simply isn’t feasible.

The reason this is not realistic revolves around price points. Every feature a manufacturer puts into a product costs money in way or another. You may see a particular chip in a unit that has a capability disabled and wonder why, and many times it is due to a licensing fee.

Essentially, manufacturers are attempting to balance feature sets that will be advantageous to consumers while keeping the product at a price point that will be competitive. Some manufacturers will even skimp on individual component quality in order to stuff in more features, but what good is a bunch of features on a unit that does not work? It is all about balancing these things out, but starting with a quality platform is of utmost importance.
