Info 2 Speed up your Galaxy S3 in 2 easy steps

*Guys I felt the phone was buttery smooth, but on certain occasions I.e. lock screen ripple transition into opening your home screen and toggling between messages in the messaging app, the transition would s stutter just a tiny bit. Problem is solved if you go into:1. Settings-> developer options-> and Window animation scale and Transition Animation scale -> change both of those to 0.5x (or 0 for both, for instant reactions). The phone now runs like the beast it was born to be. Try it and let make know your thoughts. Please hit the thanks button if this helps you. Regards, Nik

Thanks for the tip. it definitely made a differnce. I went one step further, and turned off animations completely and it seems even better.

Just tried this and unless I'm losing my mind, sure enough it did make the phone more responsive and animations faster. Just hope battery doesn't suffer as a result!

Just because you are paranoid, it doesn't mean that people aren't after you.
