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?

The IPOD might have been smooth with IOS 2 or 3. But nowadays it is a load of bull.
With IOS 4.2x my 2gen IPOD touch lags and stutters all the time.
You can pay me and I will make a Youtube video showing just how bad it is.

I have a 4G iPod Touch and it also stutters. Sometimes it even takes 2 seconds to unlock the screen. The transition between apps and search screen has always been laggy, but IIRC scrolling used to be a lot smoother.
