    What feature? You mean where if something is taking a minute to load, it'll say "resuming" on the screen with the animated ellipses. Where on iOS, you just get a spinning circle in the middle of the screen... IDK, Apple forgot to put the word "resuming" there?

    lol iOS hides this with a splash screen or a freeze frame of the app for a few seconds then you can use it again. New apps like Facebook and calendar have splash screens and almost no resuming... The more apps that get updated for 8.1 the less you will see resuming...

    The resuming happens less and less with every update, also I shy away from badly coded apps.

    What you are looking for is preemptive multitasking

    Multitasking (Windows)

    which the Windows Phone kernel is capable of, but for some reason limited on Windows Phone. My guess is that its related to resource management. I believe that once you start seeing 4000mAh batteries and 2-4GB RAM as standard they will unlock the full potential of the system...just like what you see on Windows for desktop.

    There are only a few mobile operating system that act like desktop ones when it comes to multitasking..

    QNX (BB10), EKA2 (Symbian), and a Linux distro called Maemo/Meego which is now Tizen.

    Android, iOS, and WP are all inferior from that point of view.

    If so, the feature needs an option to manually enable. Maybe a multitasking settings screen (They can clean up settings while at it)
    Let's face it, my 1520 has such a big battery I've never had it run dry. Never. Most days I get home and plug it on my bedside charger and it's still above 50%!
