Is your flash experience as horrible as this?

    Just how bad is Flash on Android?

    I know it's early days as far as flash is concerned, but is this what I should expect when I eventually upgrade to 2.2 on my Dell Streak?

    What about non-video flash? Any good?

    Flash works great on my Evo. It takes a little longer to actually load a site with flash. But once it loads its just as good as a desktop.

    Flash looks beautiful on my Captivate. Looks identical to my desktop.

    I checked out the "test" sites and the videos have been encoded specifically NOT for mobile platforms. I suspect these sites were chosen by an Apple-friendly reviewer to make Flash look bad.

    Remember that Flash is not a universal shoehorn designed to make any media play on any device. It is a media delivery platform that works best when the content is optimized for the device.

    Flash is working "Ok" but by no means is it working for everything. There are a ton of games out there that flash won't play at all.

    droid with 2.2 runing flash. It works, but the lower hardware specs make flash a bit slow, especially on sites that use it heavily.
