It won't have an effect on as many things. Quad-core is apps that support four cores, and then multitasking. Dual-core is everything. Launching apps, saving a photo, etc., even the simplest of things.
A quad core S4 would destroy the A6. No ifs no buts.
And modern phone OS's have lots of apps and processes running by default.
And yes it would because the S4 is Krait.
Here's results for the iPhone 5's GLBenchmark 2.5 test: http://www.glbenchmark.com/phonedetails.jsp?D=Apple+iPhone+5&benchmark=glpro25
28.9 FPS at 1080p on Egypt HD (off screen) compared to the iPad 3's 22 FPS. It's more powerful... and it's running 1136x640. Wow.
