GSIII to iPhone 5 - ?s

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been a long term Android man and tomorrow I will be making the switch from a GS III to an iPhone 5.

I was browsing this very site the other day and started getting served up adverts for a UK electronic ecig site I use. Totally unrelated to this site no less and it made me wonder.

All of this data mining and gathering that Google do to "improve our experience", well ...it really doesn't, lets be honest.

I still have my Nexus 7 to keep my finger on the pulse so to speak.

Now the iPhone finally has a reasonable screen size and camera, i'm content to make the switch in knowing at worst I will have better battery life.

SD storage doesn't bother me now neither as i'm going for a 64GB version.

It will be good being on the other side of the fence for awhile and not having to worry about what background processes are running, eating up valuable battery life when im on the move.

Just wondered if some friendly folks could clear a few things up for me.

1) Is it easy to upload pictures to Picasa? I still intend to make use of Google's storage that I pay for.

2) This whole iCloud thing, is that really worth the price of admission. What purposes does it serve other than music storage, and is there any restrictions on what you can actually upload to the cloud?

3) I know they introduced some form of multi tasking awhile back, but what does this actually mean in this sense? Does it keep a footprint of where you were to take you back or is it some form of true multi task?

Cheers

1) Yes
2) Yes
3) Yes and no on multitasking, depends on apps. This is based on an iPhone 4 though.. They have a task manager too, similar to the S3. When you are playing a game, and open up a browser, you will still be able to return to the game. You double click the home button for it.
