So for me, android is a no go for live stuff. I'll personnaly
try to make my own linux-powered system to put on it and
get rid of the android bloat completely.
We are in 2012 dear google, linux can go much lower than that,
the devices out there are blazzingly fast, 40ms is insane.
But well, that's life. This is "consumer electronics" after
all. If angry bird works...
Thankfully, Google is starting to pay some attention to this. With
Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), latency on the Galaxy Nexus is meant to be
I have a Galaxy Nexus and 4.1, but I'm yet to find any apps that make
full use of the improved latency, so I can't say for sure how much this
helps yet, but it's still sounds like a big step in the right direction.
Unfortunately, it'll be some time before Google's efforts here filter
down to your typical Android device, since it requires attention from
device-makers, not just in terms of actually getting Jelly Bean on
devices, but also in ensuring that their hardware drivers are up to the
