Slide animation clunky

Recorded a little video: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwR_4rSPFY_vS1FsWm9JMldNNU0/view?usp=sharing

This shows the Android experience of a user clicking between a parent to a child view. On desktop the slide animation is smooooth and pleasant. On Android it’s so clunky that 90% of the time you don’t actually see it.

Any tips for getting better buttery smooth animations?
