Just a quick question, do the apps still run in the background after we hit the home button? I am moving over to the iPhone from the Moto Q and the Q would always keep the apps running if I didn't manually end them through a end task type of program. I'm wondering this because I know with the Q if I left these programs running it would drain the battery faster and lag the performance of the phone. Has this been addressed anywhere?

What kind of app on the Q? If you leave music playing in the background on either device then of course it'll use up battery. But apps that just pause and show the last view the next time, don't use any extra power.

The Q would honestly leave everything running once you closed it out. I would then have to run the task manager and "kill all."
