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 have an HTC Aria (or Liberty or Intruder) and even though it only has a 600 MHz cpu and 384 mb of memory (and pitiful internal storage), it runs fairly smooth on CM7 (Android 2.3.3). When I still had it on the stock rom with HTC Sense (shudder), it was horrible.

Frankly, if you aren't using AOSP or the Nexus line, you won't see anywhere near the performance as those of us who do. From personal experience, the carriers/manufacturers custom skins and roms just aren't as good as what comes out of google.

My wife's HTC Inspire 4G is blazingly fast on CM7, but it is alot better than my little Aria.
