This only happens in ported games actually. The thing here is called "optimization". The iPhone developers only have to think of compatibility of two devices, so they are able to optimize the software to the hardware. The Android developers on the other hand have to think of several more GPU's and chipsets and the like for compatibility. All in all I'd expect the HTC and Sony phones to be closer to iPhone experience in playing ported games, mainly because they use the same brand of GPU (Adreno). Samsung does have better hardware, in all though, but that would only be apparent for Android only games or Android optimized versions where they used Samsung phones for testing.
