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?

I've briefly fiddled around with a Sony tablet and a couple of Android phones.

They're not as smooth as an iDevice, but it didn't bother me that much.

What did bother me was the quality of the touch screen, it wasn't as accurate as an iDevice. It even made me wonder a few times if I actually had to double tap certain icons as one touch often didn't work.

What I disliked most was the confusing cluttered interface. I felt the stress hormones enter my system. This is not what you want on a phone or a tablet that are meant to be quick 'n' easy.
