The developer options are like Pandora’s box for some users if you open them all the evils of the Android world can go wild. The developer options are, as the name implies, for developers, but even ordinary people can benefit, especially when it comes to speeding up their Android phone. Here you have five tricks with which you can make your smartphone as fast as the wind. Are you ready?
How to activate developer options
The developer options are a section within the settings menu, but by default, it is not active. To do this we need to access Settings> Phone Information and below on Build Number where we need to press 7 times in a row until we receive a warning indicating that the development options are active. Let’s go back and in the Settings menu, we will now see the new section.
How to speed up Android through developer options
1. Speed up Android through developer options by disabling animations
This is one of the settings I change as soon as I buy a device. You can completely disable the animations and make the phone load the application at the speed allowed by the hardware and reduce the animations twice as quickly or disable them completely.
Within the development options go to these options: “Window animation scale”, “Transition animation scale” and “Animator duration scale”. If you want the animations to be faster, change the three values to 0.5x. If you want your smartphone to travel at the speed of light, then edit without animations, change into “Animation deactivated”.
2. Force MSAA 4x for better graphic quality
This option allows you to improve the quality of graphics in OpenGL ES 2.0 games and applications. I warn you that this will require more hardware power and will consume the battery more quickly. However, with some games and applications, it will improve the image by smoothing the pixels with Multi-Sample Anti-Aliasing 4x.
3. Enable USB debugging
This is one of the development options most used by users. Allows your computer’s programs to access your device via USB. It is a necessary first step to install a custom recovery, run the root of the device, unlock it, install a new ROM or perform a backup on our computer (without root).
4. Password create backups on your computer
If you want to create a backup on the device computer, we recommend that you protect it with a password. This option allows you to encrypt your copies so you can’t access them if you forget your password. Click on “Desktop backup password” and enter the password.
5. Allow simulated positions
Under the “Debug” section we have an option called “Select fictitious location app”. Previously, it was necessary to have an installed application capable of simulating our position as Fake GPS Location – Joystick and Routes. Once the application is selected, it is possible to make the device simulate being in other parts of the world.
