How can apple get away with this? Why are applefags so retarded?
It's not a matter of better or worse. iPhones have NO multitasking, while android phones have. The iphone doesn't run anything on the background, which is why the apps will always reload, while android phones keep them intact.
Get rekt son.
for a lot of people its too late for that
people who spend shitloads in app stores are fucking dumb and bound to their ecosystem for life, and forced to argue for it regardless of how stupid it becomes
>went into work today
>everyone who owns an iPhone talking about what a crock of shit the announcement was
>people ask me what the specs of my phone are (z2)
>then mention the phone also cost as much unlocked as the 6 plus costs on contract
>one of them orders an android phone right then and there because they'd only been waiting for an actual upgraded iphone
>his father and him have an Iphone
>Show my one plus one, let it open some shit, switch between screens
>"Wow dad, this thing is really fucking fast, much smoother than the Iphone"
>yfw the mother now also wants to order a one plus one
False. It guarantees to maintain the task running in the background until it needs to free memory to give way to any foreground task that demands it. Android actually has a great memory management system, while iOS just kills anything in the background but keeps a snapshot of it in the app switcher, just so that iSheep think it has magical™ multitasking™®©
you are pretty autistic, 4channer. even if what that guy you replied to was very uninformed.
you may be wondering how are you autistic? well I will let your reply answer that for us.
>It guarantees to maintain the task running in the background until it needs to free memory to give way to any foreground task that demands it
Which is what I just said... are Android users really this retarded? That isn't real multitasking and iOS does exactly the same.
There is no quality bullshit, you definitely get what you pay for. If you drop any phone and it lands in the right spot, you will crack the screen. Try taking better care of your things!
I have my iPhone 4S and my Galaxy S4 Mini right here on my desk, and when I pick them up the Galaxy feels like shit and the iPhone feels solid. They both crack if you drop them like a retard you butterfingered inbred.
A friendly reminder that if you're using a Windows tablet, you can have up to two Metro apps on-screen at once and as many Legacy apps on-screen as you want, the latter being a benefit of using an actual modern PC operating system.
>mfw goophone launched the exact same shit 2 months earlier
Listen here you fucking idiot, this has been explained through the entire thread already but your shitty iFaggot brain doesn't seem to get it.
iPhones don't have multitasking. iOS freezes the apps that are on the background, which causes them to reload from scratch.
What your shitty phone has is a quick shortcut that saves a fucking snapshot of the app so you can alternate between them, but they are not actually running and stored because, again, iOS freezes them.
Got it, you fucking piece of trash?
I've started a large download on safari, switched to another app and then came back to safari later to find my large pdf downloaded.
How does that fit into your autistic outburst?
Jailbroken iPhone user here, iOS actually allows apps to run for a small time after you switch out of them, around 10 minutes I think. If the download would have taken longer than that time to run, it would have froze.
I think you're full of shit. I've had apps running in the background. It didn't freeze it.
But that's okay, go ahead a run away when you get called out since you obviously have never used an iOS device
I'll buy the iPhone 6+ if it can do this
Good thing my money is safe because it CANNOT do this
Never used multitasking on the other phone
basically when you click dual window it gives you the option to pick an app for the top and an app for the bottom.
You can switch them around and make them bigger or smaller though
Isn't your Pandora playing music while you fap to traps on /gif multitasking?
Can any of you knowledgeable gentlemen please explain why the example I have just given is not multitasking? Thanking you in advance.

Multitasking refers to the ability of an operating system to do more than one operation at once. Say writing a file to the disk while updating the Gui and retrieving and processing HTML in the background. Both android and iOs can do this. Both phones can work on more than one problem at once.
But it isn't, there are also a few different ways to prevent your background tasks from being freed (which is bad) or just restarted when the memory restraint no longer demands it (better)
>ITT people who likely don't have a phone with a ROM that can do multi-window acting like it's a feature they can't live without
Not even an iFag, I own a note 2.
It's a gimmicky feature that has barely any real world use and the fact you have to use Touchwiz to have it really seals its fate.
Also ITT people who think they NEED their browser and other shit running in the background when there are API hooks to allow things like push notifications, updates, playing music, downloading, etc. in the background.
There are plenty of reasons to hate iOS, the way it handles multi-tasking is not one of them. I can't tell you how many times I forgot to completely kill an IRC client and had my battery drain because it was still running in the background.
>computer that can make calls
>screen is so tiny it can only show one application at a time comfortably
>toy operating system
>UI has to be designed for an inaccurate input therefore greatly limiting the capabilities of the applications
And so on and so on.
>>screen large enough for two terminal screens
Yeah with MAYBE 80x15 or something pathetic, either that or very small text.
Let's not forget the shitty keyboards which are modal and would require you to constantly switch between alphabet and punctuation to actually do anything worthwhile.
>>keyboard on which you can reach 50wpm easily with practice
A whole 50wpm? Wow. And how many errors? How much time spent switching between keyboard modes? You're really doing serious work on that!
No real IDE, no decent RAW processor, no decent image editor, no good CAD application, shitty for writing any sort of markup and/or code and even shitty for writing papers.
The only "work" you might get done better are emails because you don't have to wait to get to a real computer to do it.
Because we let them to.
The same concept applies to politics and human behavior over all.
The power of economies lies in corporate ties who understand exactly the way we react to things.
Then mid class enterpenures who have a slightly better view of all the shit the top of the food chain are capable of, rather choose to go with te flow to avoid being eaten alive. Thus every day needs like, work, email and format compability go one way only.
They even gave it a slogan "it just werks"
Then us poorfags (Poor as in uneducated, unmotivated and pice of shit straight cowards) do what all poorfags do..
Wait on someone or some part of the system to change before we do.
Our generation sucks man!
I tried things like this on my sisters iphone, it's bullshit, they don't act like this if you use them like a normal person.
the text input lag is fake too.
at least point out the things that actually are shit about iphones, don't just make shit up.
Text input lag is a thing, and it's horrible if you're still on anything older than an iPhone 5.
But to be fair, Android is slow as shit on anything with slower hardware than a Nexus 5.
No, you stupid fuck, I used the phone myself, I really tried to make it lag and I couldn't. I literally told you that at the beginning of the thread.
You're probably right, it is an iphone 5, I think.
Call me a shill if you like but I think both android and ios are nonsensical, carrying around phones does no-one any good.
I have an old android phone, which I use as if it were a landline. I don't carry it around because I don't want people to be able to ring me at any time.
>calling someone else a stupid fuck
o i am laffin
webOS could multitask, and I mean FOR REAL.
You could switch around apps without blinking, and the damn thing worked. The apps were live inside their cards.
You could have had it all, but you opted in for shitty android ad-ware google-ware phones running Java, and iShit.
It's open source, and yet you still don't care.
Look at this shit, look at it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SPvq6kHDkQ !!!
Fuck you all.
I love my tablet (I bought it during the firesale's first night thanks /g/)
Love it to death, but the shell is cracking bad.
I do abuse it though.
Thing is still beautiful and works better than most tablets my friends/families have bought.
Hey nigger, how does it feel to be using outdated and expired technology? I have a G3 and MY cock is rock hard laughing at your nigger blackberry using ass. I bet you get mad pussy having to use that shitty keyboard to type. Faggamuffin.
Except it does you fucking idiot: https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/iphone/conceptual/iphoneosprogrammingguide/ManagingYourApplicationsFlow/ManagingYourApplicationsFlow.html
Jesus Christ I thought summer was over...
Blackberry master race as well. Remember when BB10 was the only OS that could truly multitask?
>that was this year
Sadly WebOS and Symbian, the other two true multitaskers, have left our company. ;___;
Because for the vast majority of people, restricted multitasking (Apple's and Microsoft's approach) is much better. Battery life and reliability often goes to shit on Android phones because shitty app developers write shitty code that doesn't conserve resources.
Sup, quick question.
I used an iPhone 5 for the past two years or so. Sold it about 4 days ago and I'm waiting for the HTC One M8 I ordered. Before the iPhone I had a Galaxy S1 so I'm not completely new to Android.
But please answer me this. If I start typing something on the web browser or other app (say a comment on 4chan or reddit app) and I switch apps, if I come back later will my comment be still there for me to finish it?
Because the iPhone 5 would reload the page/app and I'd lose my comment and have to start it all over. It's one of the things that pissed me off the most.
Confirmed for not knowing basic writing style.
Open a goddamn new york times article instead of buzzfeed one day. The "and" isn't even desirable.
I do, and it's the silkiest sexiest thing. Like running a Hand with silicone down a girls freshly shaved legs... The only time there is lag is when it's ought to be there due to CPU lock
>tfw had 1080p porn for years while iFags are still staring at 1136x640 gayporn
Holy fucking shit all you guys are retarded, how autistic do you have to be to let a fucking phone define you in any way? Use whatever you like and quit justifying your own stupid fucking purchases by shitting on others you faggots
>mfw people who can't afford iphones talk about them
blackberry masterrace here too
shout it to my boys up there ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
im thinking about buying a bb classic (q20)
if it has the 13mp as well as the passport...im settled
it looks sexy as hell, two speakers, higher resolution (im assuming) a nice keyboard, newer os version
i hope 10.4 adds a shiton more features though
i wont lie, its missing a ton of good stuff
however being able to use most android apps is amazing
i use another browser and its blazing fast yo
Q10 masterrace reporting in, cant wait for the Q20. It really makes me kek see the ifags and the androidplebs fighting over who has the least shitty botnet.
dude, my NIGGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
unfortunately, i have a z10...but i have a package on the way coming with my upgrade
how does the q10 have 2100mah and the z10 with ips display have 1800mah?
fucking niggas high or sumthing
my z10 battery sucks with newest leaks
hey man did you try the 10.3 leaks on your q10?
im so excited, i heard some people's battery last around 2-3 days, how is your battery?
ips vs amoled, amoled wins...
Haven't tried the leak yet, ive heard its to buggy and im waiting for a more stable version. with my current os i go to bed with 60-70% battery, with medium to high use of the device, its pregtty fucking sweet.
I also have my eye on the Passport, the size its a little bit of putting, but most of the time a wear suits, and its design to fit in the inner pocket of the jacket, so maybe ill give it a try once it goes on sale, at least while we wait for the classic.
soudns amazing dude
the passport is a bit wide....
i remember a few windermere leaks looking sexy as hell
like a normal phone...a huge flagship upgrade from z10/z30 would be a great addition
id still buy the classic, i love these phones they are different after using android back and forth (s4 waterdamaged)
former iOS user here
it multitasks well enough. you mostly can't run apps on the background for longer times.
the biggest difference when switching to android was that I found it annoying how I actually had to close background apps to avoid the battery draining too quickly. one of my main complaints on android in general in fact, the whole system of closing apps seems overly complicated.
its like you're supposed to not bother with manually closing apps, yet if I don't, I can't leave my phone idling for 12 hours without it being far too near 0% charge
Can for example whatsapp in iOS pull messages in background these days?
Last iphone I had was 3gs and first you received push notification, launched whatsapp and only then message was actually downloaded from server, really annoying on slow connections.
There's a lot of fury in this thread
Go outside, people. Please. It's good for you. It's just a fucking phone.
I'm willing to bet about zero of you actually require legitimate multitasking.
Give me one example.
whatever I'm going to tell ya, you'll probably just go all "YOU DON'T ACTUALLY NEED THAT", won't you?
I practically use my phablet phone as an "UMPC" when I'm away from home for longer whiles. for those occasions, its great to be able to run a torrent client on the background, and in general, being able to keep things like SSH open for more than 15 minutes (on the background) is nice, too.
this shit is like that retard that DEFENDED paying $10 to unlock bluetooth on his ipod touch after they remotely enabled it almost a year after it was out, that shit wasn't a shill cause you can't logically even defend that shit
>I'm so glad that I can pay $10 to get bluetooth because it feels like I own a whole new device!
or something like that
it also reminds me of their ad 20 years ago defending the one button mouse
>The mac mouse only has one button. This means you can't possibly press the wrong one.
even my old graphic design teacher replaced all of the mice with dell ones and he was a massive macfag. you can only take "u dont need it so we're just taking it out and lack of a feature is a feature" so far
>y-you r dum!!
Come back when you have an actual argument instead of ad hominem fostered by your asspain.
iPhones freeze background apps, which is why they constantly reload and if you choose to, for example, type something out and then go for another tab/app, you'll end up losing what you had typed after a couple minutes, if not seconds. That is a fact, now deal with it, iRetarded.
no it isn't
iPhone is a phone, and it does allow you to multitask, just not run apps for long times on the background. this is a feature I often don't need on my phone. the limit is like 15 minutes.
so it practically makes it less of a hassle to use, you stop using it, it won't waste battery for a long time.
its not too big a tradeoff w/ android, android is much more of a "I could actually use this all day" OS, but I wish it made killing apps just a bit easier. its confusing and slow atm.
>Applefags are retarded
I'm gonna give you some very simple instructions here. If you dont want an iphone, DONT buy one. I repeat, if you dont want something, your not supposed to buy it.
However, and this is were things get difficult, some people WILL want an iphone. And they will buy them. Got that?
