Actually zoom, pinch, triple tap etc all work without turning magnification gestures on.
Multi-touch is there (I managed up to 3) but very poor, with the second one often not detected or dropped or going on and of. 2 point rotation is also miss and hit sometimes moving the opposite way (while making sure I have mo finger masking) and once worked OK and then kept moving for about 3 seconds while my fingers were moved (way) off the screen.

Multitouch is not great in Sugar/GNOME either (try a 2-note chord in Music Keyboard - even had some "stuck" keys) and there are not any really touch-demanding apps but it would appear that is a bit more problematic in Android.
