That's why I left GPS off on my Note 4 most of the time. It sucked the battery dry, even when idle.
Some tasks unfortunately, become worse off due to this "turn off" feature too.
I noticed a lot of issues when transferring pictures/files between apps, where an app would sleep/stop if screen became inactive/locked. This was never a problem on Android. Not all apps are that good at continuing to do things in the background, some just don't at all. Although it isn't an everyday thing (at least for me, could be for others), it can be somewhat really frustrating not having this true background/multi-tasking available on iOS, bar for a few apps
. Really annoying when trying to share holiday pictures!
I miss some other features as well such as, being able to send "whats-app" messages while offline on android, and it will send when you are online again. When no connection is detected, I can't press the send button on my iphone.
Certain third party apps, such as an alarm clock, need to be at the forefront/running for them to work for example. You may say why would you want a third party alarm, but it is due to limitations of the stock iOS one. So I don't know, maybe in future Apple could give users the option to enable true multi-tasking by apps.
I am somewhat tempted to go back to Android, I mean truthfully, I get pretty bad battery life on my iPhone 6s (and I don't game, only browsing/emails/whatsapp). My previous android phones werent that bad If I remember (and my battery is only at 7% wear). Only reason I will probably keep at it is, because I got an Apple Watch and, am looking to buy the new rMBP due next month. But, those Android phones (particulary Sony range) with those 2 days expected life (which would at least mean I would make it through the day right?). I was in France last weekend and, I would regularly have my battery dying by around 6-7pm
