Playing 2 videos besides each other makes him productive, wow the video was covered by the keyboard when he wanted to write something, wow very useful. Who are you kidding, at least someone else has agreed that you don't really need that feature on a small screen and everyone here knows where that feature comes from don't they. I mean it would have been super easy for MS to implement it in wp8 but for what? Don't get me wrong its a neat feature but what made me go on the offence was someone commenting that that feature makes him 4x more production or was it 10x more productive.

The intent here is to understand what you can do if you ever need it. Frankly i do use it quite often when i have to communicate with my friends (watsapp, message etc) while watching a movie. Again, think about it. You will pause the movie for a bit, respond to the person and then get back. So why not use this nifty feature to do both at the same time, without halting either. Useful feature...maybe.maybe not as its all about personal preference...handy feature...Definitely!

Do it's 1000 times boo to the crappy apple iphone and their fans. What else do iphone having beside the so-called smooth skin deep ios UI?

> In reply to lolinator @ 2013-01-15 14:51 from v0qu - click to readNo its not ok i won't let you off the hook. Answer my question its as simple as that or wait you can't. Why? Cos you don't even know what you can use multi-window for on a small screen and hey don't try to change the topic, we were talking about smartphones and not tablets. The other time i checked windows rt/8 already have muti-windows support. So much to innovation. I will ask you again, how doesn the muti-windows support make you more productive on your samsung smartphone? tell me a situation where something like that is reasonable to have on a smartphone. If you can't then you get the gist my friend. Just cos a phone has an "innovative" function doesn't make that function useful.

Pissing off their competitors. Sammy fan boys think Samsung enemy is apple. Everyone is probably after Samsung at this point. Pure cockiness.

Maybe we should ask how many iphone devices apple has sold since the ip4.

Petty bs by samsung right now. If apple combined the total units of iphones sold since the s1, it will exceed 100 million. NO one expects samsung to announce numbers like this. Maybe apple apple should announce how many iphones they sold since the first iphone came out? B.S. Keep up the bragging rights Sammy.

This is sooooo SAD, knowing so many people bought the laggy Samsung products. They shouldn't be rewarded for having absolutely no clue how to integrate their Touchwiz UI into Android OS!

I mean seriously i can't think of a productive way to use the muti-screen feature on a 5.5 inch talk less of a 4.8, 4.5 or 4.3 inch.
