Given the way android is built is it technically possible to make android buttery smooth like ios? I read that article about that google engineer saying that it will never be, but several people disputed his points.

From my experience, my gs2 is extremely smooth. If you want close to ios, you should try miui. They are the best roms for extreme smoothness.

Thing is, iOS is a Operating system created for only 2 devices. The developers working on it have one focus only, making the iPhone and iPad work great.

Android instead has the power but to run on thousands of devices from any brand, any size, any CPU and other specifications.

Now knowing this, ask the question again:

No, but god bless you it's fast for it's great power. iOS might be 0.5ms faster or w/e people have tested, but you won't have such amazing results close to the Android, ever!

People say iOS is better and faster, I say that there phone looks just like 5 million other people's phone. Mine doesn't!

'nuff said

Actually one if the main things for apple is that the user interface is a real time priority where android is not. Android is a much better os.

I'm using an LG Optimus One. I'll take a little delay here and there in the GUI over buying an otherwise expensive and over-rated iPhone.

Well its better. By not assigning a real time priority to the GUI it can load more efficiently

I find MIUI as smooth as IOS. It most likely will depend on your device though.

You have to give a little to get a little. To allow true multi-tasking (not available on the Iphone) you need to distribute the RAM differently. I for one would like to be able to multi task than to see a minimal difference in my FPS...

I'd agree with that. MIUI is unbelievable!
