So I usually prefer an android machine and an ios machine. For the past couple of years I've had an ipad air, ipad mini 2 and a htc one m7 and then an m8. I mainly used the ipad mini when I had the m7, but the m8 was big enough and powerful enough that I pretty much stopped using it (It's about to sold once my contact runs out in december).

I got a very good deal for a Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.4 32gb earlier this year on cowboom.com for $260. It said it had scratches but came flawless. So now I switched to the iphone camp...

Well, it's more then that. I haven't had an iphone since the 4s. I had the 3g, 4, and 4s, but the galaxy s3, htc one m7 and m8 were really nice. But I have to admit the iphone 6s plus is a really good phone.

But yeah, one problem: Where's the multitasking? It's 1080p and has two gigs ram. Why does it have no multitasking? Will it be added later?

Maybe, we don't know.

It's obviously not a matter of capabilities. I'm pretty sure the thinking is that a 5.5" screen is just too small for useful multitasking.

iPads aspect ratio is required for the way Apple utilizes split screen. I'm sure it's not impossible but I don't think Apple feels it will compliment the iPhone experience. I tend to agree with them on their decision.

Why do you need split screen on a 5.5" device? I always felt that feature was a gimmick when I had note 3.

Just jailbreak. Split screen multitasking works smoothly on the 6S plus and 6S.

Generally when I have my phone I am away from a computer, and I like to multitask. Multi tasking makes less sense on a tablet due to using them at home.
