Android phones — and tablets, too — display animations when moving between apps and screens. These animations look very slick, but they waste time — especially on fast phones, which could switch between apps instantly if not for the animations.

While no animations is technically the fastest, 0.5x seems to feel the fastest for me. Without any animations, the thing feels like it's snapping at me, and I do not like rude tablets.

For the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Developer Menu is very well hidden !
Settings -> About Device and scroll down to the "Build Number."
TAP on Build Number FIVE times and Developer Menu is now active
Now return to the About Device menu and Develop option is listed 2nd from base of listed options...
(p.s Samsung I want the 10 minutes of frustration in finding this out back !)

I tried this on an Acer Iconia A200 tablet with no luck. I could never get it to work.
Your mileage may vary.

Seriously? It wasn't second for me, but second last. But yeah, wasted ~5-10 minutes there.

Did you find the Launcher on your S4? I managed all the steps, but no Launcher in the list of all Apps in App Manager!

That'll be “TouchWiz Launcher”, or “TouchWiz Simple Launcher”, if you have enabled the simple launcher in the Settings.

my phone don't have these options. Which version of android have these options?
