    I got a new iPhone 5S last November and running Geekbench2 on it revealed:

    ARMv7 @ 1.30 GHz
    1 processor, 2 cores

    FWIW, it scored an on-par 2243 (32-bit)

    I had trouble with cellular reception (AT&T) so Apple replaced it with a new one last month. That one showed the same CPU data and a score of 2227. Nothing shocking there.

    That phone died on me last night (blue screen, random reboot) and Apple replaced it again today. Running the same Geekbench I now see

    ARMv7 @ 995 MHz

    What gives? Has Apple reduced the clockspeed on this batch? If so, why? It scores not much lower (2204), but I'm just curious as to what the deal is here.

    Hmmm... Interesting. Have you figured it out yet?
