Now, since we are also here to tell you things about your gadgets you didn’t already know, today I will tell you an easy trick that will make your slow Android phone feel faster. Now, we all know Android phones’ tendency to slow down after a couple of years, especially if its a budget or mid-range device with less RAM. Now, while there is no way to make the phone faster, there is a handy trick that will make your smartphone feel much faster, without actually making it. Here’s how it works:
First, you need to make sure if your developer settings are on or not. If not, goo to your phone’s settings, open about phone, find build number, and tap it 7 times. This will make you a developer and enable developer settings. Now, open developer settings and look for “Window Animation Scale.” This is 1x by default. Change this to 0.5x to make animations faster on your Android phone. Once done, close the settings and you are done. Try this out and see if your Android phone actually feels any faster.
