Does geometry make or break a bike?

Hi All.

3 months in and it's time for a new bike. I brought a budget HT (Carrera Fury) but I'm pushing it close to its limit, plus want a FS.

The Boardman FS Pro looks a steal components wise. Rockshox Pike, SRAM Guide and GX 1 x 11 for £1600 full price and I'm sure much less on sale.

Looking around, other bikes I am keen on around the 2k mark have similar and sometimes the same components (YY Capra Al, Canyon Spectral 6.0 ex, Whyte T-130, Vitus Sommet etc)

Is the boardman price so much lower due to the frame or other reasons? I don't want to buy it and be disappointed but at the same time, plenty of left over cash for a dropper and cockpit changes.
