Performance difference of same program compiled differently on android, Why (I don't know)

While playing around android, I was bench-marking my device using a simple 1000×1000 matrix multiplication program which is also listed below.

int n=1000;
int main(){
int i,j,k,sum;
int no_of_bytes=n * n * sizeof(int);
int *A = (int *)malloc(no_of_bytes);
int *B = (int *)malloc(no_of_bytes);
int *C = (int *)malloc(no_of_bytes);
clock_t begin, end;
double time_spent;
*(C + i*n + j) = 0;
*(A + i*n + j) =(int)(rand()/500000);
*(B + i*n + j) =(int)(rand()/500000);
begin = clock();
for(i=0;i<n;i++){ //row of first matrix
for(j=0;j<n;j++){ //column of second matrix
sum=sum+( (*(A + i*n + j)) * (*(B + i*n + j)) );
(*(C + i*n + j))=sum;
end = clock();
time_spent = (double)(end - begin) / CLOCKS_PER_SEC;
printf ("Time taken to compute the matrix is %.2f\n", time_spent);
return 0;
