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 iPhone 4s and a WP7 phone and my SIL and a good friend both have recent android hardware (S and I forget what my friend has, got it last year).

The WP7 phone is the smoothest followed by the iPhone when scrolling. The two android phones follow closely behind that.

My visual opinion of course. But honestly, I don't care if you catch glimpse of the slightest little skip when scrolling through apps... not a biggy. They all start apps quickly and then all the apps work great. The android has a nice selection of apps, as does WP7 tho' neither compare to the quantity of stuff available to the iPhone. But I've found everything that *I* need/use on both WP7 and iPhone and I am sure they are available on the android. (Does anyone know if Geochache.com app is available on Android?)

Anyway... I have really become fond of the WP7 UI and when my wife's contract is up in February, I am going to get another WP7 phone and trade her my 4s (sell her 4) and close out my other phone account with my current HTC HD7...
