Scrolling through a large list of messages often feels choppy. My test device is a Samsung Galaxy S8 which I would expect to be able to run a chat app smoothly. Even on a test app with nothing but the sfChat with many short messages in it, it scrolls slower than I would expect it to scroll.
On our app using this control we often have frame drops when scrolling through lists of messages.
The places where frames drop is on scrolling a new message into the view - scrolling through really long messages is fine.
On our app using this control we've had to turn off profile images in sfChat to improve performance. We also use the default
SfChat.MessageShape because using any of the non-rectangle ones makes the chat render slower. Only with turning off all of these features does the performance feel acceptable on the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Is improving performance currently a goal?
