If it was free top model phone (like galaxy 4, hct one) then yes, you are 

But we dont have big full HD display, we dont have thin pretty case from high 
quality material, so i was thinking that we should offer something else 
instead to make it appealing.

You are right that it wasnt, but i dont take the argument these days. You can 
buy really cheap Freerunner and have it nearly perfectly working with 
Androind/QtMoko but nobody is doing it. The reason is that freedom is the only 
feature that others dont have and that is not enough.
