The issue has become such that all the spec geeks flat out deny any lag on their touchjizz phones even when I blatantly prove it right in front of their eyes. I counted 14 stutters in 20 seconds of scrolling. They usually count none.
Well, I just grabbed a friends iPhone 5, and my S4, connected to the same Wifi, and loaded up OCN to this thread. I then scrolled. It was identical.
So, maybe you have super laser eyes, and can see micro-stutter that my 20/20 vision and constant experience/exposure to 144hz can't. Alright, let's test that. I got out my DSLR, put it in 60fps (720p) mode and filmed it while scrolling.
No stutter even when going frame-by-frame in the video.
Android requires 'work' to keep it butter smooth. That's no secret. It comes with an Open OS. Give it a reboot every week or so; clear the ram; close unwanted/needed apps. Don't have 80 home pages and a thousand widgets. I run a very basic setup:
Animations are set to 0 via dev menu
I have 2 home pages
I have 1 widget and 8 icons per home page
I have a static background
That's it. As a result, it's very, very smooth.
You can say the same for apple. Take an iPhone 4s or 5 and let it be used non-stop for a week or so. It'll turn into a laggy mess fairly fast.Edited by doomlord52 - 9/10/13 at 3:22pm
