My phone drops about 5-8% battery every ten or so minutes playing "The Simpsons: Tapped Out" which is hardly a graphically intensive game. I could easily drain the battery in two hours on that
The iPhone's multitasking makes little difference to most users but uses much less battery. They made some wise decisions by implementing push notifications rather than allowing apps to run amok in the background. I can have push everything on, bluetooth on, wifi on, and still easily have 50% left at the end of the day. Battery life is superb and all of this is on a battery half the size of the latest Android behemoths.
The multitasking is way to limited to even be called multitasking.It's called the "Pause Mode" in alot of situations.
Search up a good detailed explaination on YouTube that cantell you why the multitasking in iOS is a dumb multitasking compared to Android's multitasking.
And when we talks about multitasking. Have you seen the crazy good multiview functionality the Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note and Note 2 have?
There you have true multitasking my friend
Why do you want iOS to be like Android when Android exists?
iOS is different to Android. This is a GOOD thing, because it gives users a choice.
iOS is meant to be simple for anybody to use and it accomplishes this pretty well. Android is more of an enthusiast/tinkerer OS.
I don't see why anybody would want either OS to be more like the other. It feels like childish competitiveness.
Do iOS have to be like Android just because we want Apple to add more good and handy features to iOS?
Apple doesn't have to make widgets in the same way as Android does it. They can do it in their own good way.
Doesn't hurt to have more good features added in iOS as long it doesn't comes in the way for those who doesn't want to use those features.
