For the most part I agree with ya, but I think where benchmarks come in handy is when comparison shopping for a phone(s), especially when you may not have access to an actual device until you've paid for it and it's delivered. Which I'm sure was the case for most of us that have Nexus 4's.
The benchmarks were, for me, I good way to gauge the performance of the N4 against similarly specs devices.
What is absolutely ridiculous is when someone/magazine/blog compares the benchmark results of devices running different OS's- i.e. and Android flagship phone vs. iPhone 5. Make zero sense...
