That's one thing that I noticed when I went from an iPod Touch over to the original Motorola Droid. The iOS is designed to provide the end user with a smooth interface. Android, on the other hand, requires so much overhead that you practically need an x86 rig to run it properly. If I open up the web browser on my Droid, slide the key board out, and then hit the home button, it takes a good 10 seconds for my home screen to show up again.
It has nothing to do with which OS is "better." The iOS runs extremely smooth on iPhone hardware BECAUSE IT'S OPTIMIZED FOR IT.

When you're running an OS on hardware it's not optimized for, of course it's not gonna run as smooth as one that is. Try running iOS on a Nexus One. Bet it looks like crap too.

Actually not really.

And FTR, iOS 4 fails hard on the iPhone 3G/3GS, so your point is debatable. It's iOS, on an iPhone, and still runs horribly.

Another good example against your argument is the HD2. Android runs flawlessly on it, and it is a Windows Mobile native phone that saw no future in Android. Even Ubuntu is running on it like butter.
