iPhone 5 Geekbench

When I bought the iPhone 5 I was under the impression that it was near the top of the smartphone pile as far as Geekbench results go. Today I downloaded the Geekbench app for my iPad and iPhone. Ran the iPad first and got an 1871 which seemed really impressive. Then I ran the iPhone which is the same chip just .1Ghz less clocked and got 961. I thought it was strange so ran it again and got 883. Then I restarted the phone and got 1201. Is this normal? I'd assume that it should be just slightly lower than the iPad 4th Gen.
