Give Android a speed boost

Posted by on Apr 17, 2015 in Android | 0 comments

Every time I installed Windows XP (which I must have done a thousand times, literally) one of the first things I’d do is to install Tweak UI and adjust the mouse hover speed to 0 and turn off menu animations.  If the computer was particularly slow I’d turn off cursor shadows and menu fading and combo box animations as well.

Android has a similar setting for changing the window and transition animation scale and the animator scale.  By default these are set to 1x.  I turn them to off but some people like to set them at .5x which speeds them up without loosing the fancy animation.

By default these settings are hidden in a developer options section.  To get access to this area you go to the about device section in the settings and tap on the build number area 7 times.  Sounds a little goofy but kinda fun at the same time.  Once you do that you’ll have a new settings area called developer options.  I haven’t messed with anything else in this area apart from the window and transition animation scale and the animator scale.

I have only tested this on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and can definitely tell a difference in moving around the system.  Not that the Galaxy S6 is a slow phone by any means but I’d rather have the menus and windows just pop instead of looking pretty.
