Once the experience of the OS is perfectly smooth (no lag, stutters, etc.) then what's the point? It looks good on paper, but does the consumer benefit from it much?
I'm not saying it's a bad thing, I'm just curious why.
A few reasons really for processor speed:
Firstly the screen resolution is pretty beefy, similar to a high end tablet I believe. So you are going to need a more powerful CPU & GPU to have a smooth experience with higher resolution.
Finally, the faster the processor the faster apps will load, etc. No phone is instantaneous so I can't see why you would say "1ghz is good enough" phones will continue to get faster and faster, especially as screen resolutions continue to grow.
