Because chip architecture makes a difference as well as clock speed and number of cores.

The A15 core in the Exynos is a little more powerful for the same clock speed than the Krait core of the Qualcomm chipset, so can match or exceed benchmarks with a lower clock speed. But it also uses more energy to do this, and hence the lower power cores in addition to achieve a useful battery life, since running the A15s all of the time would eat your battery.
