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 am an admitted android fanboi. However, I have to say I do see the jitter. To me it is even obvious when looking at a tiny ipod nano compared to *any* android device, even the latest generation (I have an HTC sensation with latest cyanogen, mildly jittery).

The debate of this is surprising to me because it is very obvious IMO.

Maybe the issue is people's ability to see the jitter? For example some people can see the refresh on old monitors and others can't. Just a theory, no idea.

I always thought it was lack of hardware acceleration in android ui which is now fixed in ICS. I'm really curious to see if all the people who can see it are happy with ICS, that is what I'm hearing.
