    I was trying this phone out at Best Buy today and was using the stock web browser and noticed it lags a lot.. I had the iPhone 4 beside it, and it seemed the iPhone 4 rendered pages quicker and was A LOT smoother scrolling.. both used the same WiFi signal... do you notice your Arc is slow for browsing/choppy? I'm thinking of buying one but after seeing that in store I might by an iPhone 4 or Incredible S

    As long as i've got a good data connection i dont notice much in the way of lag.

    Mt htc hero was very slow using the stock browser, to the extent that i switched to an alternative, which helped quite a bit. So far using the arc i havent felt the need to switch from stock.

    I think the iphone will always tend to feel more responsive because the software is coded for exactly one hardware configuration, so it can be better optimised. Android software has to have alot more flexibility, which costs. Also android does a lot more stuff than IOS, has more going on the background (true multi tasking, widgets, notification processes, etc) and will render flash on websites, all of which can cause a performance hit.
