I've seen some very fast Java solutions in my time. A large chunk of mission critical enterprise applications and systems run on JVM, very fast and very stable.
Talk about generalizations. The "large chunk of mission critical enterprise applications and systems" don't run on the Snapdragon CPU tho, they run on multi-CPU multi-core 64bit systems.

Are you really trying to convince me that the well-written code that needs to be translated to the object code in VM is as fast as the actual object code?
