You most certainly are not crazy my friend. I've noticed this problem too! It is very annoying after owning an iPod Touch (I immediately noticed the difference in fluidity even though I haven't used a Touch since July) I just assumed it was a problem with all android devices because i've never used another android device before.
If there is a fix in the December 11th update it would make this phone better than the iPhone hands down IMHO.
Anyone know a place where we can post problems we think need fixing that'll actually be considered?
