So imagine that you're playing subway surf on your phone and you want to check out a whatsapp message, what you usually do , you minimize the game and open notifications and jump to whatsapp and read the message and you don't expect the boy in the game (subway surf ) to keep running when you are replying someone it's so simple and essential that when you're replying you expect the game to pause and continue when you're back on screen! Isn't it???
Okay then their is another condition when you're listening to music and you want to check out a freshly received whatsapp message you open notifications and click on whatsapp message and this time you don't want music player to wait until you reply , so their are some situations when you really want to let background app run even when you're doing something else (eg. downloading, music playback, receiving files our Bluetooth ) and even their are some situations when you don't need background app to run (eg. Playing subway surf, or other games or playing movie or video )
So the basic part is only some apps need to multitask ,in some cases only part of an app need to multitask, this can be a bit hard but let's understand this too, take an example of play store, if you have not opened play store but it'll still tell you that updates are available for this and that , or as soon as you enter Wi-Fi area it starts downloading updates for apps (if you have enable auto update over Wi-Fi network ) this capability is also called as multitasking but in this type of multitasking not whole app is running in background but just one command (to detect Wi-Fi and start downloading ) and one service (to download apps and install them )
So it's clearly seen that multitasking policy of apps varies from app to app
So which type of multitasking should be added and what services and commands would be running in background is totally depend on developer of that app
Android don't restrict developers and let them experiment how they want to do it all with their app, iOS restrict it to some extent, and in case of windows this is totally not in control of the developer their are only two states either your app is running or either it's paused in the Background, no services and know commands
This is the reason why developers don't like to develop for windows phone and toast notifications takes time to receive,
This is also a reason that Nokia Lumia 1020 takes more time to save a picture (even in 5mp ) cause camera and photos are two totally different apps and making straight changes from one app to other takes time on windows phone, while other OS would have significantly improve the saving time,
This is also a reason that their are very less apps available on windows store
So this is it

Anonymous, 26 Oct 2013But android and IOS can Download a file and play video or game at same time but Windows phone can't Who said you windows phone cant windows 8 can
This camera is a nice phone as well.
Yes windows 8 has its drawbacks but I find it to be very fluid, never ever froze on me like many people I know with ipohnes whose facebook freezes often. Call quality is really good as well.
From a photographer's perspective it's really a marvel of advancement. If you don't know photography or don't master its basic concepts than you will be disappointed .The automatic mode is fine but there are manual controls and if set properly they will provide you with pictures like never before from a smartphone. Yes after taking a picture there's a 1-2 sec lag before being able to take another one, if you selected to have both 5Mp and 38Mp saved.
Buy with confidence it'll pay in the long run.

Right, I'm using this phone for about two months now. So far it's a fantastic phone as I've expected. A great user experience, lag free, smooth, great screen, even in sunlight it's still better readable then other phones.
The camera is simply awesome. I can say it's wonderful that there are so many settings just to make that perfect pic. One thing I do miss is built in wireless charging. But the rest is fantastic. Now waiting for what the GDR3 update brings.
I have this phone for 2 months now and I'm disappointed with its camera. It takes about 3 second to take the picture after pressing the camera button, the pictures can be very blurred and the zoom it's not it all as they say.
Wish I could switch to a Galaxy S4 or the Xperia Z1.
i wish there was 41 mp camera for 1520 as well. Screen size above 5 inches and full hd is what I want to buy. Hope nokia listening to customers like us who are waiting for 41mp phablet.
