14 Secret Tips For Your Android Smartphone
Below are the fourteen secrets tips to improve your Android Smartphone experience
Keep the screen active at all times
First of all, if you work long hours with your phone and are fed up with the screen that turns off by itself, this option is for you. This ensures that your mobile phone screen remains active even during recharging. To turn it off, you will need to use the on / off button.
Limit background applications
This option limits the number of applications that can run in the background of your Android Smartphone. Selection is limited to a maximum of four simultaneous apps, but it is also possible to select “no app”. The processes will automatically close after using them.
View design contours
This option shows all edges and edges of the virtual system. Once activated, it allows you to see all the limits of Android. This tool helps developers who work in interface design.
Force GPU rendering
This option will be enabled on all 2D hardware applications, even if they are intended to work with other renderings. Forced rendering will improve the performance of your device, but may present a material risk: use caution.
Show usage of CPU
By selecting this option, you will be able to display the CPU information on the screen. The tool shows all the active processes using the CPU and gives you graphical representations to illustrate the whole.
Show the pulsations of the screen
This option allows you to see the gestures made on the phone screen. This visual feedback helps developers and users who want to see what is happening on their screen.
Simulate secondary screens
This option shows secondary screens in different resolutions. It is thus possible to simulate the behavior of the mobile with other screen sizes and resolutions (shown in miniature on the screen).
This option allows you to see all active processes and applications for the last 23 hours. By selecting an application, it is possible to display information on the use of the RAM memory, the execution time and the services used.
The location of the pointer shows the path of the pointer on the screen and all the data selected by the user, as well as the different parts of the screen concerned. In addition, it is possible to measure the accuracy of the touch.
Restore the speed of the system’s animations
You can completely disable your mobile’s animations to speed up the launch of applications. This option is valid for interfaces that have a lot of animations, or for especially slow phones. This tip will make your smartphone faster and more efficient
Force the MSAA 4x
MultiSample Anti-Aliasing improves graphics quality in OpenGL ES 2.0 games and applications. Keep in mind that enabling this option will require good hardware, and will consume battery faster. You should however have better graphics thanks to the MSAA 4x.
Enable USB debugging
This is one of the most widely used options. It allows programs on your PC to access the device via a USB cable. This is an intermediate step to root your phone, unlock it or install a ROM without rooting.
Password for computer backup
If you want to create a backup copy of your data stored on your computer, it is recommended that you protect it by password. This option encrypts the copy, but be careful not to forget your password if you do not want to lose the data!
Allowing for false locations
Fake Localization GPS helps to make your device look like you are anywhere in the world. This will prevent Google from knowing where you are, and doing many other things.
We recommend that you do not activate the developer options if you are not familiar with them.
