    On an old thread on this forum, a user named engineer with some numbers in the handle said something to the effect that the bionic has something iphone users would love. What was that something?

    Only thing I can think of is battery life. He said it wasnt screen related. Someone mentioned hardware acceleration. Anandtech mentioned that reviewing the Droid 3...might be a smoother UI? I'm curious as hell now...lol

    There are threads in different forums about how come Android isnt using it. The custom UI's all might be using it now tho. Sense UI and Touchwiz uses it, the Bionic and Droid 3 might. Samsung uses gpu acceleration in the browser too, according to Anandtech.

    I think we already knew it was gonna have a FFC. Engineering was referring to something we didnt already know.

    IPhone has hardware acceleration for the UI, it's why the UI is butter smooth.

    Android has hardware acceleration in various capacities, such as the method employed by the opera web browser.

    Right, I was specifically hoping for hardware acceleration for the UI built into this new Blur.

    He said that it's something Iphone users would like, this means it's something they've become accustom to using on the Iphone that Android devices haven't had previously.
