Samsung's Galaxy S 2: The Smoothest Scrolling Android Device Aroundby Anand Lal Shimpi on September 12, 2011 2:00 AM EST
One aspect of differentiation between Android smartphones has always been how smoothly they scroll both in the OS and in the browser. Later versions of Android have addressed the issue by adding varying degrees of GPU acceleration to the OS, but there's still the need of raw memory bandwidth and the GPU horsepower to back it up. It turns out that Samsung's Galaxy S 2 delivers both.
The Vellamo data above measures scrolling performance, higher numbers being better of course. Compared to all high end GPUs available in Android smartphones today, the Galaxy S 2 is significantly faster. The Exynos 4210 features a dual-channel LPDDR2 memory interface along with a very powerful Mali-400 MP4 GPU. Combined with Samsung's GPU accelerated browser the SGS2 is able to deliver a huge leap in scrolling performance.
