I've noticed a lot of apps instead of shutting down, give me the option to "hibernate" them. What exactly happens when I choose that option over just plain shutting them down?

Hibernating an app will make it consume less memory, thus freeing up resources for other Android processes or apps and making your device run faster and smoother.

When you hibernate an app, the last state is written and the app is removed from the main memory (so now it's not technically "running", not even in the background). This is a power management function to lengthen battery uptime and making space for other apps and processes.

Some design is good, some design is bad, and yet some design is just full retard Comic Sans with a rainbow gradient on it.
