now in the new ice cream sandwich build there is an OPTION (only option, not enabled by default) for complete gpu rendering. this option is missing or not enabled in the new android 4.03 leaks of the S2 samsung firmware. i dont get it why google does not force all new firmware to enable this very very nice feature by default. in my option it should be enabled about 1 year ago.. i love android, but from an objective point of view, IOS and the new windows phone software is much smoother.
watch the video and you will see the difference. i hope it will be the new standard and will be fully enabled in all upcomping android firmwares. will i be satisfied?!

Dood its not quite as simple as you think. Just enabling global GPU acceleration is not guaranteed to always give UI speed benefits. Due to complex interaction between soft/hardware components & bottlenecks , in fact on some configs it can definitely slow UI down.
Also on a mobile device you have to consider more issues than just pure UI speed, battery life is definitely more of an issue to consumers.
