Is it worth it to have a Quad core than just a dual core?

....there is no appreciable difference between a dual and quad core processor phone with current technology and available applications.

Right now it's mostly bragging rights, and the 'race' to release something 'new-fangled' that will sell. Meh.

FWIW, notice how the U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy III only ships with dual core and not quad core. Sure, partially because the quad core chipset doesn't support our LTE, but AFAIK, probably more because our carrier ROM doesn't require a quad core to run just fine.

In reply to: Agreed

Yeah, you're right..

But for a user's perspective who just want to choose amongst.
Are there programs, system or i don't know anything that have been written specifically to take advantage of the multi-core processors? Like a dual a core can have an advantage over the quad and vice versa?

Or, nothing at all just like want birdmantd just said?
