What’s more, the special effect processing of iOS is based on GPU hardware acceleration, which is not able to totally make use of CPU or apps, but to render by GPU and then to reach more fluent manipulate manifestation. However, Android is not the same. Android needs to apply different mobile phone hardware, to satisfy different configuration, therefore, many graphical effects depend on the application itself, to accelerate or render, and to reply CPU operation. In that case, it will increase the load of acceleration.
