HMMM... sounds like you need to clear the caches and do a soft reset. My phone is fast and smooth from one transition to the next. I realize some people like the slow sweeping transitions but I myself appreciate the battery saving action that goes on behind the scenes when the OS and screen don't have to do all that refreshing. With GB I got about 48-60 hours of daily use from my phone, with ICS I get 80-96 hours of the same use.
I have to say though that I don't have but a few apps and I don't have any games on the phone - it's a phone, mail stop and G+ quick checker for me. I have Evernote and have used it in my school work (in a pinch) with no problems. I have used it as a radio and MP3 player but not often. I use the Kindle app to read my school book.
Over all, I'm impressed with the upgrade and I look forward to JB but won't be suicidal if it doesn't happen.
BB? Blackberry? No. Never had one but sister in law still has one.She likes it mostly I think for the ease of e-mail use. I have no experience with them. My Razr Maxx is my first Android phone. I have a Samsung Omnia 2 Win6.5 phone that is now just a Solitare game player by the toilet. The biggest reason I switched was lack of support for the phone from Samsung and Verizon. As a phone and web browser it worked great.
