The apps continually run, until its "swiped" away. I guess that wasn't the best video as those who already don't understand how it works, wont understand it much better.

The apps can be ran in the background just like iOS/Android.

I don't understand why you think I'm attacking iOS every time, you're fanboyism is rather blatant.

Android's multi-tasking works very much the same, but it still doesn't compare to say webOS. It's fine that you think the multitasking in iOS is what you consider the perfect multitasking for a mobile OS, but I prefer something closer to a Desktop if possible.

I give credit, where credit is due period. I have a iPhone 4S, and a EVO 3D. So it's not like I haven't used a iPhone before, I've used webOS, Android, iOS for at least 2 years on each platform, they all have their pros and cons. Which is probably why I will continue to support all, especially webOS as I wish that would of took off.

Side note: steelbom, I can actually discuss mobile operating systems with you without the clear fanboy that other Apple/Android fans/haters seem to have. +1!

^this is what I was trying to get across. There are negatives to all os's. It's annoying when someone argues right past that fact.

To be honest, I'm really leaning towards the iPhone 4s on Sprint but the thing that really concerns me is WHEN Sprint can fix the horrible 3G speeds that everyone is having right now. I really like to have unlimited data but I want it to actually be useable and not waste of money. However, the Verizon double data plan promotion does seem quite enticing.

I'm a sprint user in nyc. I had the 4s for a bit and sold it ($) but one of my friends has it on sprint. It's generally .6 to 1.2 M indoors.

Solidly broadband.

The joke is unlimited but to slow to use. The reality is it not too slow to use for video, streaming netflix movies, web. You could easily blow by 2 or 3 gig weekly with enough streaming.

You said an incorrect statement. I corrected you. iOS has "true multitasking" in the computer science definition.

I have never stooped to calling anyone on here a fanboy. Why do you?

I feel like it really depends on where you live. Recent Sprint update actually improved my speed greatly, speed test shows 1.1Mbps download/.63Mbps upload 130ms ping with only 4 bars. I'll do another test when I'm getting five bars tomorrow when I'm outside. Last time I did it though when I had five bars I was getting 1.73Mbps download/.3Mbps upload. No idea why my upload was poor though.

If I go to the other side of town though, my results are .66Mbps download/.49Mbps upload. These results though are older and was before the recent Sprint update.

Galaxy Nexus (not nexus prime) has a different type of break resistant glass. It's not gorilla glass but it's similar.

No, I wouldn't call widgets running on iOS multitasking either. That's fair enough. How exactly does Android handle it? When you exit an app it remains running, completely?

By "swipe away" do you mean swipe to the next app? It seems to me as if it runs until you flick to the next one and then it's paused, which is the same as iOS but with a different UI. (iOS can continue to run services, or background tasks, if coded, though, I don't know about webOS since I don't know anything about webOS )
