Scroll by pixel, not by cell.
If you have large cells, scrolling becomes impossible. The page always snaps to the top of a cell. Even if my cells are small enough for me to read them fully, scrolling through them leaves me disoriented and I keep loosing track where I am on the sheet. I see no reason not to scroll by pixel instead of by cell.

There is one solution.
Merge the cells (e.g. you merge cells A1-A4 and you can scroll by quarter of the cell). It's definitely not nice or easy solution especially when you have a lot of cell, but if you really need it, there you have it.
And I assume Andreyka is just another user, who was trying to be helpful - so not a waste of energy.

@Izzy, the other one has about 100x more votes than this one, so counting them together doesn't really change the priority level. Also, they say there that they're currently working on it as of 2018.
There seem to be more comments about this issue being a duplicate, and directing us to vote.
Instead of wasting energy telling us to vote on this, why not count all the posts, consider those "votes" and fix this!!
There is absolutely no reason for 'smooth scrolling' to not exist, its about to be 2020! I remember the 2013 and 2016 updates, and i'm sure this was a complaint then, and remains to be a complaint now. MS, fudgin' do something besides change icon aesthetics!
the 'middle click scrolling' suggestion is more helpful than anyone who i assume is working for this website.
However, 'middle click scrolling' is still annoying because it is so touchy and can fling you to the far reaches of your spreadsheet while temporarily taking away all mouse functionality.
This seems to be a duplicate of https://excel.uservoice.com/forums/304921-excel-for-windows-desktop-application/suggestions/9769824-have-excel-scroll-better-when-there-are-large-cell
So please rather vote there to accumulate votes under one thread.
And this is apparently a feature available in the Mac version, so it's not like it is not doable.
Oops... bad Roy... maybe that is a feature of the Mac and therefore available without much effort to the Mac version programmers. "Bad Roy"? Well, forgetting that such a nice feature is NOT, apparently, part of Windows...
And therefore, this might not be so easy for the Windows version prgrammers, and they "why" of it could be a wee bit embarrassing to MS in general.
But it would still be very handy.
