Google doesn’t seem to have ditched the mini-stutter or stuttering animations in the Pixel 8 series.
We’ve been dealing with performance issues on many Android phones for years, and Google’s Pixel series has various unfinished business issues. This includes animations that don’t always run smoothly and possibly still scrolling issues in apps
The theme returns every year
What’s crazy is that we reported these issues two years ago with the Pixel 6 series, then again with the Pixel 7 series, and now with the Pixel 8 series. Many users continue to experience stuttering and other hiccups in various apps on the latest Google devices.
After the first reports in various forums, a survey also highlighted this colleagues Hours later, about 50 percent of users still see these issues regularly across various apps.
The survey confirms the initial observations
I haven’t consciously noticed this in the apps I use, but I trust people. Why? Because, for example, it’s still the case that switching from Google Discover to the home screen is jarring, even on the Pixel 8 Pro. Not every time, but often enough that I notice it.
Android still has old issues
This is not exclusive to Google in the Android world, it must be said. Even on the most expensive devices, minor stutters and hangs are still a problem that dates back to ancient times in 2023. Android has improved a lot, but it still has some issues that you may have noticed here and there.
Even if the faster hardware of new devices can compensate for many things that are still not perfect with Android, not every weakness can be hidden. So it’s completely understandable that Google is now increasingly focusing on improving the software on Android and paying less attention to new functions
