We’re sure you’ve noticed by now…hitting that “X” button in the upper right corner of programs in Windows Mobile doesn’t actually close the program by default, it puts it into hibernation mode, just as if you were minimizing a program on your PC. This can be good because it makes the program open faster (since it’s already loaded in RAM), but if can be bad if you have a device with a limited amount of memory, or if you’re heavily multitasking.
OEMs like Samsung have been including a setting that allows you to force programs to close when you press the X. But which behavoir do you prefer? Should apps close or hibernate when you press the X?
