These Android Hidden Functions will Make Your Smartphone Faster

Do you find your Android smartphone a bit slow to relax? You may be able to improve it by changing a few settings.

For months, updates and apps you install, your Android smartphone may appear less responsive than when it was launched. When signs of weakness like this start to be felt, it's usually time to do a regular reset on your smartphone to get back on track. But before getting there, it's possible to tweak a few settings that can provide a boost.

For example, by disabling all animation and transition visual effects, navigating on your smartphone will gain a few milliseconds which most of the time will be enough to provide a little convenience.

The manipulations to be made to achieve this are not insurmountable. The implementation will only take you a few seconds and you can easily go back if you are not happy with the results.

1. Enable Developer Options

If you haven't already, start by enabling developer options on your smartphone. To do so, go to Settings, go to About phone, and tap The build number shown at the bottom of the screen seven times.

Note that depending on the smartphone you have, the menu title may change. On a Samsung smartphone, for example, you need to go to Settings > About phone > Software information > Build number.

Then confirm the activation of developer options by entering your unlock code. If successful, the message You are now a developer will appear at the bottom of the screen.

2. Open Developer Options

Depending on the device you have, the Developer Options menu may be in a different place. You'll find it at the very bottom of Settings on Samsung devices, or at the bottom of the System menu, like on Google's Pixel smartphones.

3. Disable effects

Once in Developer Options, scroll down the options and then, under the Path heading, find the Window Animation Scale, Transition Animation Scale, and Animation Duration Scale options.

Tap the first option, Viewport Animation Scale, and change the default, Animation Scale x1, to Animation Off.

Repeat the same operation for the next two options, Transition Animation Scale and Animation Duration Scale.

In principle, reducing this setting or disabling it completely will allow your smartphone to regain fluidity and be more responsive than usual. However, if this change doesn't suit you, repeat the operation and change the value to x1 for each option.

If you have a Samsung smartphone

It seems that disabling this option on Samsung devices has little effect. The Korean manufacturer does offer a special option to reduce the animation on its OneUI overlay.

To do this, go to Settings, then in the Accessibility menu, go to the Improved visibility menu to enable the option there Animation removal.
