Samsung Galaxy S3: How To Increase The Smartphone's Speed In A Jiffy (Tutorial)
With a gamut of new speedier Android smartphones like the HTC One and Galaxy S4 inundating the consumer space, owners of older Android-powered handsets may feel their devices are slowpokes. However, if you're still holding onto your Samsung Galaxy S3 (even as your friends adopt the latest devices), do not fret, as we have a tip to make your smartphone speedier in a jiffy.
Sounds too good to be true? Well it's not, as the quick tip to help you bump up the speed of your Galaxy S3 is hassle-free and pretty simple to implement.
While the Galaxy S3 is a pretty nifty and slick smartphone and has benefited from Google's Project Butter, the device can sometimes freeze briefly while performing certain tasks like navigating between messages. However, with a few adjustments to the Galaxy S3's settings you can ensure that the smartphone is running buttery smooth.
So if you're game to try and speed things up on your Galaxy S3 check out the step-by-step tutorial below. It takes only a couple of minutes and you'll end up with a less stuttering Galaxy S3 post the tweak.
A note of warning, while this works well with most Galaxy S3 smartphones, the results may vary from device to device.
Step 1: Open the Settings menu on your Galaxy S3.
Step 2: Next, navigate to Developer Options and change the value of both Window Animation Scale and Transition Animation Scale to around 0.5x.
Step 3: Voila! Your Galaxy S3's animations should be markedly faster and hard-hitting than before.
While this process doesn't exactly increase the speed of the device, it reduces the transitions between animations which makes for a faster experience on your Galaxy S3.
Give this a shot on your Galaxy S3 and let us know how it worked out.
