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'm currently using a Nexus S, and had a Nexus One before that, and I don't see any difference in the responsiveness or smoothness of the UI compared to my wife's iPhone 4.

I am willing to bitch about sometimes choppy widget refreshing on my Galaxy Tab 10.1, but given that the iPad doesn't even have widgets, I'm not sure you can compare. As for app performance, it's fast any clean with any decently written app (which is most of them).
