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?

My Galaxy Note definitely has some lag spots despite being one of most powerful devices on the market.
(stock TouchWiz 2.3.6, no live papers).

Screen switching - butter smooth, always
Orientation switching - smooth, little lag
Contact scrolling - little choppy, minimal lag 1st time (looks like cold cache)
Browser zooming - semi smooth, ok
Browser scrolling - mixed bag, sometimes smooth other times (even on simple pages), choppy as hell, irritating
Picture zooming , ok but not at IPhone level
