    There isn't much difference between Grid and List performance in Android. This is because both views inherit from AbsListView in native Android and have the same rendering process, differing only in the layout.

    The only difference between a GridView and a ListView is that the ListView displays only one column; GridView can display multiple columns.

    As a result, deciding which layout to use is often related to the use case of the layout, not performance. If you need to display multiple columns, it is better to use Grid, and if you only need to display one column, it is better to use ListView.
