We’ve already seen Qualcomm’s dual-core S4 processor outperform Nvidia’s quad-core Tegra 3 in a few benchmark tests over the weekend. But how well does their little S4 perform when it comes to one of the single most important features of our smartphones — battery life? To show the world exactly how much their new processors will impact your upcoming smartphone’s battery, Qualcomm took a phone outfitted with their S4 processor around the world in a single charge, and uploaded the results to their YouTube channel.

Yes, we know — this sounds a bit more dramatic than it really was. What you’re looking at is a fun marketing gimmick of what is essentially a commercial for their upcoming S4 processors. Qualcomm did mention that the phone was powered down during flight but you have to admit, even over the span of 2 weeks, cold starts and multiple video takes, the results are still pretty impressive. Video below.

What did you guys think? Will you specifically be looking for Qualcomm S4 processor in your future smartphone?
