Samsung claims up to 10 hours of usage. The real number is about 2-3 hours. And the phone gets hot after 30-45 minutes of activity(browsing the internet not playing games). Apple claims 10 hours of usage for their devices, and they last 10 hours(I have an iPad 2, so I checked:).

As I said - it's app availability & coding. Facetime is coded to pause when minimised. If it was coded to continue then it would run fine in the background so I say again - it's an app coding issue rather than an OS capability issue.
sorry "Apple product" as a term... those two pros are excellent and even better then pc in that price range

LAN, 4 computers, I (sgs2) run FTP service for my coworker to use data from directory on my phone while I send files from one to other computer and while it is copying review one of documents...(and do not compare simulations of file systems on iOS and jailbreak iPhone... that is what people want and not Apple, and jailbreak is proof that people want something like Android)

quasar running on a jailbroken ipad opens apps in multiple windows ... moreof course more real estate is required to fully enjoy this feature. Which is why they have the Galaxy Note 10.1
One day Apple will unlock this feature from the bowels of iOS. I am very sure iOS had it all along just like the 4" screen it had hidden behind the 3.5" one in the older iPhones.

Anonymous, 17 Sep 2012No, ios and android apps are different. In, ios, you hit the home button and its quit or pause... moreNo.
In iOS they only pause or quit if they have been coded to quit otherwise they'll continue working in the background
The reason lots of apps quit or pause is because they don't need to keep running.
If you take email as a prime example. You open up your mail app. check mails. press the home button. The app is still working fully in the background & will continue to notify you of new emails.
Now look at a game such as angry shark on android.
press the home button & the app pauses...
it does this because it's been coded to pause in exactly the same way an ios app would have been...
In fact on my android phone I have several apps that if I press the back button enough times to get me to the home screen then it's completely closed the app down. Again this is due to the coding of the app.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2012sorry but you're wrong. quasar running on a jailbroken ipad opens apps in multiple windows ... moreQuasar is not even close. The only app running is the window at the front. Everything else at the back is paused. Quasar just shows you a snapshot of the app before it was paused giving you the impression that its running but its not. Try putting facetime ate the back whit some app infront you will see what im talking about. Facetime will ve frozen at the back

If the cores are running at only 1ghz then that surely bodes well for the batterylife! Should easily last longer than android batterys! If its all true then how the hell can 2 little 1ghz cores outperform 1.5ghz krait? I guess this could be the innovation that weve all been missing?
Abhijit, 17 Sep 2012Lack of "floating apps" on iOS is not because of app unavailibility.
iOS simply d... moresorry but you're wrong.
quasar running on a jailbroken ipad opens apps in multiple windows & does indeed prove that ios itself is capable of doing it.
Whether apple allows apps that do this onto the appstore is another thing I'll grant you but it's not difficult to jailbreak & add this feature if you wish.
& I would only want to do it on an ipad as the screen real estate on an iphone doesn't justify it..
I can understand people enjoying that function on a Note but then again I don't particularly want to carry a device of that size around with me everywhere I go. If I'm in the pub I don't want a tablet in my pocket I want a phone & if I'm going somewhere I need a tablet I'll take a tablet...
& without that screen real estate then floating apps become nothing more than a gimmick that will be quickly forgotten as the little windows will be too small to be useful.

In, ios, you hit the home button and its quit or paused for that app. Thats why ios apps dont need exit buttons or back key. Cause ios automatically quit them (or pause, whatevs). In android, you hit the home button and it stays at the background. You hit the exit button or back button, it then quits.

every phone have multitasking.. or kind of... even nokia 3310 have multitasking (talking and browsing contacts)... but that what you called multitasking is not true multitasking. those are few and only operations that os allow to do in same time.
