Is the performance in 1.17.x versions good or bad?

I've done quite a bit of work to increase the performance of the game for the 1.17.x versions of Dweller. A lot of the sluggishness of previous versions was caused by a rather naive "let's redraw everything every frame" mentality. The old way worked well on desktops and powerful smartphones, but for the majority of devices it was not a very good strategy. According to my tests the intelligent rendering of the user interface components and the map has increased the performance of the game a lot, but I'm curious if this is true for the majority of Dweller's players. So, what do you say. Is 1.17.x versions faster/less sluggish than the old 1.16.x versions?
