The REAL benefit is the benefits to battery power and power management by quad core chips that claim to be 20-30% more power efficient than current single or dual core chips by passing tasks off to either companions cores or spreading the work around and more efficient designs.
stop thinking about quad cores in the most basic level - speed - as though that is the only benefit. it's not even the real main benefit and your assuming to much by thinking that is why everyone who wants them wants them.
Key word is current, the A15 Krait is not a "current" run of the mill dual core.
This review shows the S4 is as efficient and as powerful as the Tegra 3
