Optimizing the performance of native Android UI components

Over the last few years, Android native UI performance has grown significantly. This is primarily due to the ability to render the components and layout using GPU hardware acceleration. In your React Native application, you may be using custom view components, especially if you want to use a built-in material design component that has not been wrapped as a React component. Even though the Android platform has made a conscious effort to increase the performance of its UI, the way we render our components can quickly negate all these benefits.

In this recipe, we're going to talk through a few ways to get the most speed out of our custom Android view components.
