Same question. ...

I have the same question. Mine is 2280. Well, what the heck does that mean. Geekbench provides absolutely no recommendation based on score. All they say is higher is better. I wish I could get my $.99 back.
I purchased this app for the iOS iPhone.
I to have have found the battery scores to be worthless with no way to determine the battery's condition. The meaningless scores can't be used to determine if the battery needs replacement.
For those that purchased the app on the ios app store, you can request a refund.
I have already requested a refund and the refund has been approved by Apple.
Please see this Apple support page for instruction on how to request a refund:

I'd like to apologize for the lack of documentation around the Battery Benchmark. We're working on improving the documentation, as well as making the app itself easier to understand. We hope to have something to share in January. In the meantime thank you for your patience and understanding.
I've found the battery test is good for before and after indication, as in before replacing the battery and after. If you have a used 6 or 6S it's likely you need a new battery. So, run the test on existing battery as your benchmark, and again on the new battery as the comparison, you should see good % improvement. Also, Apple has now lowered battery replacement to $29 so it's a no brainer for these models. If your CPU scores are lower than benchmarks on app it's likely your battery is weak.
I'm sorry to hear that you weren't satisfied with the results of the battery benchmark. I'll see if we can improve how we explain battery scores in the application to make it clearer to users in the future. In the mean time, I can answer any questions you might have about the battery benchmark.
The battery benchmark measures the life of your battery while performing processor-intensive tasks. The battery score is a measure of your device's battery performance, and can be compared to the scores of other devices. As with all Geekbench scores, higher scores are better and double the score indicated double the performance. You can find average battery scores for a wide variety of devices on the Geekbench Browser here, and you can search for individual battery benchmark results here.
If you have any questions about the battery benchmark, please let me know and I would be happy to help out.
The battery benchmark provides your device with work to simulate typical processor-intensive tasks, and it measures the device's ability to complete that work as well as its battery level over time. The battery benchmark score is calculated as a combination of the device's battery life during the benchmark as well as the rate at which it completes work.
The confidence level is based on the degree to which the battery level changed, and to a lesser extent the duration of the benchmark and if there were any anomalies detected in the benchmark results. For example, Full Discharge benchmarks (from 100% battery level to near 0%) will typically be identified as High Confidence, and Partial Discharge benchmarks will typically be identified as Medium Confidence. If a battery benchmark was cancelled early, but Geekbench 4 collected enough data to produce an estimate result, the result will typically be identified as Low Confidence.
