Advantages of RecyclerView – RecyclerView in Android #2

The main benefit of using RecyclerView is the speed with which list items are loaded into the view. Beyond the visible entries, RecyclerView prepares the view behind and ahead. When you need to get the bitmap picture in your list from background activity, it provides significant efficiency. It will be significantly faster if you use RecyclerView.setHasFixedSize. ListView is built on the concept that there is no way to precalculated or cache the size of list items until the scrolling is completed.
