While you can see from my numerous posts that I have become a huge Nexus 7 and Android fan, and I think the Android OS is superior to iOS in that it lets you get more things done, I have to say that the scrolling experience in the iPad 2 is still better than in the Nexus 7.
I don’t know if it is the OS or the apps themselves, but scrolling seems to be more “picky and sticky” on the Nexus 7 than on the iPad. The apps I use are things like Chrome, FaceBook, Zite, Currents, HuffPost, etc.
On the Nexus 7 the scrolling experience is a tad jerky. And sometimes if you are scrolling by touching in “not quite the right place” you have to try again. This never happens in the iPad 2 in mobile Safari or those same iOS version of the above apps. Scrolling is always smoother on the iPad 2.
I’m not saying the experience on the Nexus 7 is bad, I’m just saying, despite all its other benefits, it isn’t as smooth an experience as the iPad 2 when using apps with scrolling. I wonder why that is so?
I’ve seen some online lab tests reporting the same thing with game apps.
What do others think?
