I have a Galaxy S2 and just about everything is perfect for reading the posts,
but there's one annoying little feature (and it might be the phone, I don't know):

if code tags are used, the code appears in a component similar to clicking 'view plain',
and the moment you touch that area to scroll, the phone thinks you want to edit the text,
so pops up the keypad and all the copy/paste ribbons etc which reduces the
readable/scrollable area, and now with all this quick/short scrolling up comes the
select word/select all etc option box.

it might just be a phone thing, but if not, can the 'code tag' code be changed so it
appears as normal uneditable text.

If I remember correctly there were some performance issues with the code tag rendering on mobile devices since it is a client side operation. You're not the only one experiencing this.
