    Just received my black 32G Iphone 5 today, after running a few benchmarks and playing around with it I can confirm the actual processor speed is somewhere around 1.2GHZ. It appears that it may even have a scaling feature to clock up and down based off load as they have been seen on geek bench anywhere from 800MHz-1250MHz. Here is my geek bench result:

    I have ran GeekBench and see so many different scores.

    As low as 1200 for 800MHz and 1485 when it shows 1.2GHz. App probably needs to be updated to be more exact.

    Looks like it has some type of power saving/performance increasing dynamic clock speed adjustments like Intel® Turbo Boost Technology

    This may be why it achieves good battery life. Is scaling common on the ARM processors used in mobile phones, or is this another Apple customization?
