please remove (or speed up) the animation when selecting an option in the pull down menu.

This slows down every action (e.g. making new appointments in the calender app). Or is the blinking effect useful for anything that I missed?

Related to version In my point of view it is faster, yes, but still to slow. If this is really necessary one short blink should be enough! This is why I reopend this question.

When watching a beginner it is slightly better to have something blinking. Otherwise they might ignore the vibration for menu point acceptance.

Thanks, I missed that. This question is answered. I hope this will be enhanced or better removed within the next release.

Awsome. One blink should be more than enough (pun intended :).

Still too slow in :( I don't like to watch animations when this slows down every action...

To me all the animation that were ever added to the SFOS only slowed down given action. Yes, the system was polished and it is working better (smoother is the word?) but the animation itself always slows down given action. Do you remember when the circle animation was added for starting apps? I was quite shocked how slow it felt to open app in updated system. The same goes for animation on lock screen (in Why should I wait for animation when I just need to quickly check the time? It would be nice to have option in settings that would remove these animations.
