Disable Android animations

« Home 20 mai, 2016. updated: ---

Android Acceleration and Security: Mobile smartphones with Android and tablets have animations when moving between apps and screens, of course these animations look very slick, but we have good reason to block or minimize, because:

  1. wasting time (even if only 1-2 seconds, to 10 windows 20 sec)
  2. unnecessary battery energy consumption
  3. Slow navigation between different applications and interface screens

Acceleration and Security

Attention: By disabling animations will accelerate the navigation between different screens and apps on your phone or tablet. Of course, you can also speed up the animations if you’d rather see them. This option is located deep in the Android system, and a simply user will not find. It is hidden because it is only for development purposes, and will be introduced in the next versions of Android, but adventurers can enjoy these advantages right now

I did so

I touched the Apps button, and in next window selected Settings. In next window, bottom, touched About phone (or About tablet) option. Here, scrolled further down and selected the Build number. In earlier versions of Android phone must quickly tap it seven (7) times. A message appeared You are now a developer! Opened the Developer Options screen and slide the switch at the top of the screen to On. In this menu I disabled: 1.) - "Window animation scale", 2) - "Transition animation scale", and 3.) - "Animator duration scale". Acceleration felt immediately

More details

Tap the Apps button and select Settings

Scroll down to the link contacts on your device and press About device

Scroll down to the Build number field and tap it. (If you have an older version of the phone must quickly tap it seven (7) times)

A message appear: You are now a developer!"

Here, in the middle of the screen, there are three (3) options:

  1. Window animation scale
  2. Transition animation scale
  3. Animator duration scale

Tap each link to determine the level of animation, higher, lower or completely deactivated. If you’d like to speed up the animations without disabling them entirely, select the Animation 0.5x option instead. Even this minimum option produces spectacular acceleration

Secret: Phones, tablets with older versions of Android system are slower, change the window or the interface between applications slowly (very slowly), for this serves the animation, while the app loads, loading animation to show during this process)

Tip: If your Android phone is really old, replace it with a new as soon as possible, because you lose a lot of visible effects, useful options, more advantage

Site history

The site was released in 2007. After Windows'98, the first descriptions were made for XP, however, due to the cessation of Microsoft's support for XP (Experience), Windows7 and Vista descriptions have been deleted. At the end of October 2014, tips for Windows 10 have been added, but with the spread of smart phones and tablets, it has become important to transform the site into a "friendly mobile receptive". This was in the early months of 2017, as of April 2018, the new descriptions appear on the Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), corresponding to a new standard designed by Google to accelerate the AMP HTML content known as "purified code"
