Google Dianne Hackborn has posted on Google+ about some common myths regarding Android's graphics rendering pipeline, and we have a rebuttal to that one as well. Interesting stuff, but I want to talk abut something related: Android's gaphics performance. I'm hearing a lot of talk about how Android's effects and transitions and such aren't as smooth as those on iOS, but on my Galaxy SII, everything is super-smooth. So, I'm wondering - what's it like for you?

You're simply wrong. Android is pretty good, and I also have a Galaxy S2, but it simply still isn't as smooth and responsive as the original generation iPod Touch I bought (and returned!) several years ago. To say otherwise is to delude yourself.

Yes, it's pretty smooth. It just isn't *as* smooth. And especially it isn't as responsive -- that is, the lag between your finger and the animation is much greater on the Galaxy S2 than the iPhone in many places.

Unfortunately I don't have an iPhone so I can't do a video comparison right now, but it is absolutely the case. (Although the Galaxy S2 is the best of the Android phones I've tried, and it does come close.)
