5 unknown functions that will improve your smartphone
Are you unbeatable on Android? Some little secrets are hidden in your device and you may never have heard of them! We show you various hidden settings that will help you to further improve your favorite smartphone.
1. Magnification gestures
Did you know that your Android phone has a magnifying glass feature? This can be useful not only for reading smaller characters but also for zooming in on certain elements in applications that do not support zooming, such as Instagram.
See you Settings> Accessibilt to activate the enlargement gestures function. Once the function was active, you can zoom in and out by pressing the screen 3 times. To pan, drag two or more fingers across the screen. You can pinch two fingers to adjust the zoom level.
2. Easter Egg
I am always surprised by the number of people who do not know about the existence of a hidden game on their Android phone. Google hides from us in its Android systems little surprises to discover over the versions. To discover the Easter Egg (that's the name of the surprise) of your version of Android, go to Settings> About phone then tap the Android version several times.
The name of the Android version will then appear and if you press a few more times you will be redirected to a game.
3. Faster animations
This is the first thing I do with any new phone I get. Disabling transitions and animations on your phone will make your smartphone faster. Of course, this is a simple tour because the animations and transitions do not really make your phone work more slowly.
You can thus play on the parameters to control what happens when you swipe from one screen to another, or from another app but also to control the speed at which pop-ups appear.
For faster animations, here is what you need to do:
Access your smartphone settings, then press the phone button
Find your Build number and press it seven times until developer options are active
Go back to the settings and press Developer options
Find the Window animations scale and Transitions animation scale options and deactivate them.
