How To Speed Up Your Android Smartphone/Tablet By Disabling Animations
When you first get your hands on an Android smartphone/tablet, the animations when swiping the screen, switching between apps and running programs are pretty nice. But after a while the excitement about this pretty animation wears off, and you start becoming more interested in hurrying things up and not wasting time.
Well, one way you can make your Android smartphone/tablet run faster is by reducing animations or completely disabling them. Once done, you will instantly notice an increased speed of performance on your smartphone. Though at first you won’t really feel that animations are slowing you down but after waiting for them, over and over again; on a daily basis, it soon start feeling silly.
