if you want answer for your question "what multitasking offers" try to install single tasking os on your computer and try to work (f.e. try to download something and surf in same time).

Laughing out loud when I see android fanboys calling iP5 a failure and comparing iOS6 with devices on Jelly Bean - JB this, JB that, JB doesn't lagg etc. Ask yourself what's JB market share currently, huh? Ignorant fools.. Majority of droid users is still stuck on shitty Gingerbread and this ain't gonna change anytime soon, while every iPhone user can enjoy goodies of iOS the minute they buy phone.
Long live Apple!

Multi tasking does what exactly?
When I exit an app in iOS, i easily resume it when I click bakc on the app.. so whats the deal? What does "true" multitasking offer me? seriously?
Nothing. Even my games appear right where I left off. It shows the lack of knowledge of iOS by so many Android users.

It's to save battery life. Programs constantly running in the background drains battery life. That and software customization is why the iPhone has good battery life with a relatively small battery (compared to Android phones).
Ted: "if it's still based on the old Armv7, then it should b thick and it should b hot as well!"
Do you realise that almost all phones (be it Android, Windows Phone or iOS) have Armv7??? :|
And benchmarking iOS and Android is not the same. iPhone doesn't have the "best" processor, it has enough so it can work well (guess why is that) so you can't really compare them.
Dan, 17 Sep 2012Hey
Anandtech put up a new article on iPhone5 - presumed CPU benchmark came up on geekmark... moreAgreed, I'm switching back to Android SGS3 or LG Optimus G when it's released
Sent from my iPhone 4S
little correction needed:
the only details they revealed about the new processor was that it was called the A6 and that it was twice as fast as the older one in GPU as well as the GPU.
This must be GPU and CPU i guess.
Nevertheless, thanks for the update. I think Apple should reveal the amount of cores this new chip uses, as that is what competitors and consumer alike brag about.

The Razr M a mid range phone and cheaper than all those high end phone will kill it on benchmark just like it beating the GS3 and the other high end phones.

Seeing that most premium phones are the same price as a basic or mid range desktop/laptop we would expect them to function as a pocket computer hence "smartphone". Just because you don't multitask on your device does not mean the majority of people don't use it. If you want "just a phone" go buy a refurbished Nokia 6230i on eBay for $35 :P

Well, I don't guess A6 has its own architecture, cause' it's more likely to use A15 one. Apple wouldn't buy the Qualcomm's chip cause' it doesn't worth it. They also doesn't have their own factories to make their own chip. Soon Ti will release the new Ti OMAP5 chips, which have almost absolutely the same chip and GPU. It seems they've bought the chips from Texas Instruments.
5 rows of icons and this.
I think Sony will be releasing a Windows Phone soon,
as iphone users wonder whats happening and like live tiles
Thank you Elop for saying no to lag and forced closes.
Custom A6 dual core - looks to me it is the (upgraded) Exynos dual core architecture used in the Galaxy S2/Note. It is highly unlikely that Apple designed from the ground up an entirely new CPU core architecture and then have Samsung fabricate & manufacture it.
