I have it on my start screen if i want to use it. and it open right away. its the same thing like multitasking, it takes the same time like if you press you app on multitasking and me on my start screen. but the apps and games run in background if you dont close it. if you press the back button for 1,5s it open all open apps. for now 5 or so but now comes tango update and the multitasking is gonna to be 8 or more i think.
If apps are buggy, its the devs fault, not google or ms or apples... My two cents anyway. Everything can be coded and put on other platforms as long as said platform supports that language. Otherwise, you would need to build from scratch..
On topic, the Android phones are designed for processing power and multitasking. I think most android phones do well with this if rooted and ROM is built from source. Manufacturers cause the android phone to be slower and laggy.
I have an iPhone 4s, Droid x2 and I'm getting a HTC Trophy this week sometime. The iPhone is good with keeping lag away and multitasking seems slow. When I have to wait on load screens everytime I open an app, its slow. My x2(if rooted and a custom ROM is installed) will keep apps in background nicely to be recalled and the overall system consistency is very good. I have played with the Trophy numerous times and I liked it. The speed overall was good. I know the Trophy isn't the best, but I'm on Verizon and I still think it was satisfactory.
I may be confused on the main argument but is wp faster than ios or android... Depends on what you want! Here's my breakdown:
Why? iPhone keeps nothing in memory hardly and constant load screens in reopening apps although the system hardly lags. I liked the argument that within 2 or 3 clicks you know what you want which is why wp7 gets the 2 slot. One argument that was never brought up in that was Android has widgets for this, I can post to FB, look at voicemail, check banking account, and search the web without pressing a button! Well maybe slide from screen to screen or press hardware search, but that is why I think its faster in that since. The x2 is not the best android device available, nor is the Trophy, but they both prove to me to be the better device vs iOS. If speed = getting the information you need fast, android and wp7 stand almost toe to toe. Android pulls ahead due to linux's ability to multitask rather well... Keep in mind I said the android device is aosp, not what you see at the store.....my thoughts anyway.
