    I've always wondered why the iPhone was smoother too. That's one of the reasons I moved away from android to a windows phone. I recently played with a galaxy nexus and thought it was pretty slick. Android definitely is moving in the right direction.

    Stock settings, at least on Android Revolution, run the page nicely, but those changes I made with your settings suggestions and it runs just a tad smoother. That's about the only site I ever had choppiness with. As for apps, I use Rage Faces alot and it is still extremely laggy with both settings.

    Windows Phone 7 is extremely smooth, but it is also very simplistic. Android has animated wallpapers (though I never use them, WAY too much power consumption in the CPU / GPU to warrant pretty moving colors in the background), multiple home screen pages, an app drawer with a 3D transition and also other effects like tilting, fading, moving in and out...

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking Windows Phone 7's interface; it's good at what it does. Live Tiles are pretty neat, and as we addressed the result is an extraordinarily smooth and elegant UI. So....it's give and take.

    For some reason in the Engadget app (not through the browser, that's perfectly smooth) I experience choppiness on the Galaxy Nexus. I didn't notice choppiness before on my X (at least, not as much as I'm getting now). Maybe it needs optimized for ICS? I am not experiencing this with any other apps, though. They either increased in fluidity or stayed exactly the same (i.e. Redbox app performance increased, Netflix has stayed the same). Engadget's app, ironically, is the only one that has slowed down. Enabling the GPU rendering has not helped in *that* app.

    My guess would be optimization. Rage Face ran smooth on my Inc, but is almost impossible to navigate on my Nexus. It's some pretty bad lag.

    Soooo... wouldn't that going to completely undermine the Android multitasking abilities? Just saying! :P
