Increase your SGS speed by just changing Settings

Go to Settings > Display > Animation > No animation

I found this tweak at anandtech. My SGS is now flying. It's amazing. Your SGS performance will at least double after setting no animation.

Turning off animation disables the fading effect when opening and closing apps.

Works on all SGS firmwares. It may not work if you are using the default TouchWiz home.

Cheers

To me this only seems to affect the settings windows, doesn't change the app draw fade, or homescreens. What else does it turn off?

This is true makes most things snappier. The animation reminds me of my old iphone anyway, don't wasn't that now do we! Its enough that samsung copied the design of the enclosure...

this works great on the interface make it feel really snappy.

It stops the fading effect of moving from one screen to another screen or pop ups. So, now you don't have to wait.

is the graphics driver at fault?
if the animations are not smooth and thats causing the delay, maybe the graphics driver is at fault.

Perhaps, as overlays/transparencies might not be working as intended, any app that uses any kind of transparency/overlay/fade over TouchWiz seems to go to hell.

To see this, checkout vizBattery, when the screen with the 2 select buttons pops up and its semi transparent if you have a live wallpaper going you can see the frame rate drop to 5 fps.
