I have lately noticed that, after last updates on my Samsung S3 mini (although I am not entirely sure which ones in particular), applications simply do not close after exiting them and keep running in the background. As workaround I have to manually end all the processes from Task Manager.
I have read a couple of similar questions recommending this or that other Application Manager to switch them down but I did not understand whether this is a standard behaviour for Android phones (that I somehow never noticed) or a bug introduced.
Also, why is that so? Exit an application means exiting an application, I see no point is closing them but still keeping them running behind the back: it obviously drains the battery strongly. Is it adjustable?
