I'm not sure that's accurate.  The developers may well have prioritized 
snappiness but just not achieved it yet.

In any case, from my perspective as a user of phones, snappiness is 
really important.  I would trade most of the features of my current 
phone (a Motorola Razr) for it to respond instantly when I press a 
button, at least for common operations, instead of just almost 
instantly, which drives me nuts.
