Obviously if you leave the apps running in the background, then some will leave a considerable battery drain on the device. But with the proper measures in place, you should get great battery life out of any Windows Phone 8 Lumia device that you decide to purchase; battery life on my 920 has been great mate.

Hi, thanks for the response.

Sorry, i meant, does applications run on the background or it will be just freeze state. For eg, if i am downloading something, will that continue even though i use other applications on the foreground?

i think that most applications support multi-tasking in the background, i for one have downloaded YouTube videos and switched to another app then back, and it has finished downloading my videos.

Like ios of apple devices, windows phone 8 also doesn't support true multitasking in all user cases....fortunately in case of downloading os does support multitasking.

Yes, on WP7.8 when you leave an app it is suspended and so Skype will lose connection. In WP8 the whole viop handling is in the OS itself and works just like a normal call.
