Being able to go from one program to another without having to start it all over. Which means if you're on the web, in facebook, in the market all at the same time, whenever you switch from one app to another, it will be right where you left it. That's because while you're in one task, the other tasks don't close, they just move to the background.

    While it is a handy feature to have, having so many background processes running takes away from phone resources, which could result in lag, and the increase in resources used, can start to drain the battery faster. Using a task manager, you can completely close the programs you're done with, or you can just end the all if you're not going to be using the phone for a while.
    hmm i see. is the phone basically self explanatory?

    hope its not complex lol. cause the way yall make it sound im going to be draining battery when trying to master the phone haha

    No the phone is really easy to work with. I've never actually had a question on how to use the phone itself, everything is clear and gives you lots of options to get to the things you want. You won't drain battery trying to figure out the phone, you'll drain battery not wanting to put the phone down. I spent like my first week sitting next to a wall (charger) lol.

    I'm kinda in the same situation you are in! May I suggest you check out the BackFlip Forum. It is specifically designed for BackFlip owners and those seeking info about it. you will find out a lot over there.

    Good Luck!

    I kept mt battery on performance mode and just made sure to kill background tasks, I'm assuming the best would be smart mode. The screen us way too dim on saber mode. I'm sure it can be adjusted, but I don't like to change battery profile settings

    The backflip had horrible battery use at first but since the 13.37 update the battery use is enough to get me through the day with my normal activities like some short gaming through the day, a few phone calls, checking email here and there and just playing with the phone in general to find cool new apps and such. I think battery performance may be even better under 2.1.

    I went to the Captivate from an iPhone 3GS and IMHO, the Captivate if a much better phone.

    In my case the Captivate is much faster than my iPhone and the screen is much larger and better looking.

    In the end they both do the same things but the Android is much more customizable.

    The one thing I don’t like about Android is not being able to copy and paste from emails. It still boggles my mind that this feature is missing.

    I found a couple of ways around it but it should work natively.
