1.Reducing Animations

Android phones are faster than they actually are.We can control the animation speed of any Android device which makes Android faster. In order to reduce animation follow my instructions:

  • open settings
  • open About phone tab
  • Now tap on build number for 6 times. This will make you a developer.
  • Now back to settings. Now you will find a new option “Developer Options” above “About Phone” tab.
  • open Developer Options and enable it.
  • Scroll down and you will find a tab “animation scale”.

Now you decide whether to reduce them or to increase.

Reduce animation to increase the speed of android mobile but it reduces the user experience.

Increase animation to increase user experience and makes your device more fluid. This might reduce the speed and drain your battery.

So make your choice wisely.


2.Not just monitoring data, control it.

Data Usage feature in Android is not just to monitor the data usage, it is also used to restrict mobile data.
