Wouldn't a Tango Tablet be better for in-store use?

I have had this phone for a couple of weeks. It is well built and the large screen is nice and bright. Since the screen is bright I can run it at 50% most of the time which leads to easily making it through a day of 3+ hours streaming news video, Facebook, Bluetooth and wi-fi always on without charging from 7 AM to Midnight. The speakers are nice and loud and even capable of playing music for casual listening with Dolby turned on. The only negatives so far are not a great camera especially in low light, no NFC and the extra sensors for Tango lead to a lower position of the fingerprint sensor that is not naturally where your finger would land. Performance is very good with no noticeable lag after weeks of use.
