I agree with everything except the CPU comparison.
Comparing CPUs is relevant only with all other things identical.

on the other hand, comparing a CPU with BlackBerry10 on one side and iOS on the other side is not relevant.

What matters is that BlackBerry10 is multitask, meaning better battery management.
