Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

However smoothness and usability are two very different things.
While Android 2.* is jerky on the UI, it's still snappy in performance on a reasonable device.


I think smoothness relates to usability greatly. However you're correct when it comes to a stuttery UI and overall performance.

That's the tragic point of this entire thing. Android has MORE than enough hardware to accomplish the task. The OS (Gingerbread, things are much better now) was just unoptimized for the scenario.


Mind you.... iPhone4 and iOS6 don't really play that well together. Ironically for smoothness I go to Galaxy Nexus, not my iPhone4.


Yeah, I'm aware. Its appalling it even passed Apple's QA. It was such a blatant degradation in performance that I was shocked.

The GN runs ICS (maybe JB by now, I don't know) which helps a lot, even ICS I found was a huge leap forward in UI performance.
