PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Oh multitasking. That staple of computing that got thrown out the window with many modern smartphones. We got some rudimentary thing in its place - but even as multitasking on phone and tablets improves, its user-visible side remains cumbersome. Windows 8 has a neat implementation, and now it's time Android follows in it footsteps.

Force closing applications won't save your battery under Android. They'll just restart whenever they feel like it anyway. Turning off the radios will help a lot, but naturally, the GPS isn't normally used when it isn't used. So you don't really save anything from turning it off. Data, on the other hand, will drain a lot. Then again, if you don't want data, you don't want a smartphone.

tl;dr: you're doing it wrong.

I get at least two days out of my Nexus 4, and that's with Google Now tracking my movement.
