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?

HTC Desire HD with Cyanogen

I have been using the HTC Desire HD (Single Core 1Ghz Snapdragon). With cyanogen the transitions are smooth 98% of the time, however every now and then something's going on which causes it to be a little jittery. I suspect it's doing some sort of garbage collection but have not had time to test/investigate further.

I have a standard wall paper background and fancy widgets running a desktop/screen clock and weather widget. I also have my calendar on another desktop/screen. Nothing updating constantly.. auto updates every 6 hours.
