    i don't use my phone for business. it's basically just for pleasure (FB, texting, web, apps, etc.). what, if any, would be the advantage to upgrading to a dual core processor?

    to your case specifically, it'd just load things faster.

    Also battery life is supposedly better with dual core as opposed to single core.

    Once everything is optimized for dual-core, it should help battery life as apps can split the load and not run a single core very hard.
