Quad-core processors are proving that, the processing speed of a smartphone increases as you increase the number of cores, and this is the most recent advancement in cell phone processor technology. The applications that benefit from quad-core processing are gaming, imaging and video processing apps; and the processing here is much improved when compared to dual-cores in terms of multitasking and multi threaded application performance.

One of NVIDIA's Tegra series' quad core chips actually uses a supplementary core, thereby handling the tasks at a lower frequency, for functionalities like active standby mode, music playback, and video playback. The latest Android phones from Samsung implement quad core processors helpful in browsing the internet and multimedia entertainment.

Furthermore, compared to dual-core processor phones, quad-core processors grant prolonged battery life, as the processes are distributed across the multiple cores.
