Francis:

After thinking on it I believe the camera you tested must have had some sort of continuous face, subject or area AF tracking turned on without a designated target to track. Therefore it hunted and slowed down the EVF/LCD refresh capability.  For me the EVF is one of the bright spots of the X-S1 and when set properly is very quick.

If you ever try another one and make sure at least initially that all continuous AF tracking is turned off, you'll see a huge difference in refresh speed.  Surely it will respond much more like you had expected.
