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?

Isn't some of androids "lag" intentional? For example, the "rotation lag" is actually there to avoid hysterical rotations while you are, for example, lying down playing with your phone/tablet.

By the way, my Nokia N9 beats all your androids and iphones in UI speed. It is still a dead (i.e. murdered) platform, which should show that having the fastest UI is not the only requirement for winning the phone war.
