yea ofc, and i really hope there'll be "great" games available for BB10, because appearantly people love playing on their smartphones and i want BB10 to succeed
im just saying, im not one of them... i enjoy GOOD games and in my opinion those are not available on any smartphone

New CPU in Z10 =Awesome!
i want games to play as a time filler.
but the trade off in having the latest and greatest games is that it drains the battery quick.
i know i wont be playing those games, not unless i am near my charger. which happens to be next to my ps3.

Better specs doesn't always mean better performance, but most of the time, it does. You can't diss the value of specs just because you saw on one occasion that a V4 car beat a V6 car, because, most of the time, higher horse power and torque on specs means better performance.
Specs and bench marks are designed to measure functions of a product. They are developed and gradually perfected by professionals to give Average consumers an idea how great a product is in general. yes the specs and benchmarks in mobile space might have not yet being perfected, but still they can give you a general idea.
When i see a phone powered with 1.5ghz processor, i know it 's most likely faster than my 9860. When i saw my PlayBook scores badly in sunspider benchmark tests, i know why my PlayBook is so slow on accessing crackberry forums.
Z10 has better specs in CPU, GPU, and RAM, that why I am not surprised it beats i5 and SGSIII on browser tests, app launch tests, and some benchmark tests posted in video. Whether that's because of the efficiency of the OS, it remains to be bench marked. When the i6 or sgsiv comes out with better specs, you can't just simply say that Z10 is going to outperform them because of the efficiency of BB10, because, you simply heard of it from someone on the forum, or from articles published by QNX.
Another rumor circling around was, iphone doesn't have good specs but performs better than android phones. that's simply not true. every generation of iphone has better specs than previous one, and it usually has the best specs on resolution, GPU, battery life, camera, etc. over all other smart phones, and the CPU specs are also among the best of the market can offer at time.
If you only rely on how a phone feel at hand to evaluate a phone's performance, you would have to have used the competition extensively before you make the judgment, otherwise you are just speculating.
So specs matters.

Doesn't the OS matter? I'm putting my money down to buy more QNX
If you talk to 99% of people and they aren't going to care about at all. I doubt anyone who actually even cares about specs has any quantifiable way to differentiate these variances in specs during their daily use of their devices, but of course they think they do.

So, I want to see how fast the system executes what I need done. If QNX with an old dual core processor and only 2Gb of RAM does what I need to do faster (or fast enough) than the other guy, do I really care about hardware specs. Some uninformed consumers will, some will follow the sheeple, and others will evaluate the performance against their needs matrix.

All I know is that PAST RIM devices could have really benefited from just a little bit better hardware! Even the PlayBook really needed a better GPU. I know that with mobile devices Power Requirements of the hardware have to be balanced with how much power you can get out of the batteries. But SPEC to matter to the average consumer, that is what they use to give them a "benchmark" between devices that they are not familiar with.
That said I don't think people do as much comparison shopping anymore for phones - they usually get what a family member or a friend recommends.

Apple has proved this time and time again with the iPhone, not using bleeding edge tech (actually older tech) and still having one of the most fluid experiences on a smartphone.

I think we all agree on one point, we want to see how the overall system performs. If an older CPU with modest RAM has outstanding performance due to an optimized OS, then we aren't going to care. If the system crashes, reboots, hangs, etc., then it will fail regardless of specs.

His post was not useless.
He's drawing a parallel with CPU/GPU in mobile phones to the engines in cars. It's a very valid analogy.
And you're right, there are other variables involved such as transmission, tires, suspension, etc. But that's exactly what collinc93 is saying. Things such as the BB10 OS itself are like the sum of the previously mentioned factors. That's why a straight comparison of a CPU/GPU doesn't tell the whole story, just like looking at an engine's displacement/horsepower doesn't tell the whole story.
