So either you have something like QtMoko without fancy stuff, and it
will be faster, or you have some fancy effect, but slower fps. That's
it. You can cry, you can yell, it will not be possible to do something
more than that. Yes, it is frustrating, but the world is like that,
you need to compromise. Choice has been make that people prefer fancy
stuff over speed, and you are one of them apparently, so the
compromise make sense. If you want better perf, switch to another
theme and E will feel faster.

You don't want to solve the problem. You want the world to be like you
dream it. But this hardware has limitation that you should take into
account, if you don't, you will wast your energy and the energy of
others for nothing. And yes, it costs to accept that the hardware we
have is not as powerfull as we would like it to be. And yes, it costs
to accept compromise. Welcome to the real world.

So now, I ask you, what do you propose ? At least raster give you a
few possibility.
