Is it worth paying more for the Nokia N8, or should I just get a C7 instead?

I know the Nokia N8 has better specs than the Nokia C7, but is it worth paying more for it?

I'm currently using a Nokia C7, and I had an N8 last year. The N8 obviously has a much better camera (although the C7's 8MP EDoF only struggles at close-ups. Otherwise it's a good camera).
The N8 also has that very sturdy aluminium body. But the Nokia C7 has Gorilla glass, too, and I've been abusing it for 2 months now - it looks like new.
The only times when I notice that C7 struggle compared to the N8 is when watching .flv clips... Aything over 3 minutes tends to hang when you try to forward, but hey, most competitors cannot even play .flv, so there...
You can play Angry Birds on the C7, it has a document suite, pdf reader, flash lite 4, usb- onthego etc etc... It's a good phone for the price. And 8gb plus memory card slot is a good combo.
By the way, nokia sell a very cool hardcase for it in case you find the looks a bit 'hm'...
Compared with the n8 as a baseline, I'd give the c7 an 8/10.
For its price and what it set out to be and actually delivers it's a 9/10 (

ps, when I say .flv clips I mean videos downloaded from the web via pc and transfered to the c7 without converting them. I do not mean streamed vids.

The question is not valid as any savvy consumer can get the N8 cheaper than the C7

Maybe not cheaper but I cant see you having to pay more for a Nokia N8 than a C7. E.g you can get 300 mins, unlimited internet, unlimited texts for £25 per month on a one year contract, with £60 quidco cashback making it £20 per month or £240 in total for the phone + the minutes/texts / internet. See the hot deal in HUKD. It makes the question of expense driving your decision making between C7 and N8 - irrelevant imo.

to JanSt C7 and N8 have the same internal specs so will perform exactly the same.
