Android can give you such an amazing user experience. You can customize it in your own way using third-party applications and that is what I like the most. There are certain ways using them you can make your device your own! You can give two new looks – pranks and functional beauty. Coming on some sensitive settings which you should not touch if you do not know. Yes, developer options. It is the hub for all sensitive controls. We are going to play with those options. So, make sure you have enabled developer options first on your device settings. If you do not know follow this path.
To enable Developer Options, first, go to device Settings> System> About Phone> Tap 7 times on Build Number. Now you should get the Developer options in Settings> System.
#1. CPU Information
CPU is the heart of any smartphone. It takes commands from the user and performs the exact task, what it is made for. Smartphone CPUs are divided into the different cores. You may have heard the words like Octa-core, Quad-core or Dual-core such like that. Cores are designed such way that they decided automatically whenever they should become activated. Whenever a user tries to do a loaded work like playing the high-graphics game, editing in photos using photoshop or editing in videos and exporting them, in such conditions all the four cores runs simultaneously.
Your smartphone can show which cores are now active and taking how much load on it. You can turn this options by following this path.
Head over to the Developer options. Under the ‘Memory‘ sections, you will find ‘Show CPU info‘ option. Turn it on. It will show the current CPU information on the right side upper corner of your phone. In my case, currently I am in the settings and four cores are running at this time. Now, whenever you perform any task, you will see the fluctuation in the numbers.
#2. Get Your Sign on Your Device Screen
Your phone collects each and every touch information of your finger. Shocked? Yes, it is true. Whenever your finger touches your smartphone screen, your smartphone senses that all touch and it performs exactly in the same way, what it is programmed for. For example, you slide down from the top, notifications come down. So, your finger is working as a pointer similar to the computer’s mouse pointer which guides the phone.
You can turn on that pointer location settings on your phone. Here we will play with that. I am turning on this feature because I want my sign on my mobile phone screen on settings, on an app like Instagram or Facebook to share it with my friends. How cool is that, right?
You will find this ‘Pointer Location’ options under the ‘Input‘ section. Just turn that toggle on and that’s it. Do your sign anywhere on the screen on any application. Take a screenshot and share it with your friends on social media.
#3. Make Your Device Fast
There are some default rates for every animation happens on your mobile phone includes the app opening, app closing, switch between recent apps, etc. The company does not allow to change them. But you can change all the settings from the developer options. If you think any application on your Android device opening slowly or it takes much time to open then it should take, you can decrease the animation speed in order to make it less time-consuming.
You are currently in Developer options so just head over to the ‘Drawing‘ section, where you will find the ‘Animator duration scale‘. There should be a default scale. In my case, the default number is ‘0.7x’. Take the toggle all the way to the left to make it extra fast or take the toggle to all the way right to make it extra slow.
#4. Make Your Device Display Looks So Much Clean
If you think your device doesn’t look sharp, you have a temporary solution for that. It is DP. DP means the Density Independent Pixels. Basically, in the higher density screens, there are more pixels takes place per inch of the screen whereas in the lower density screens the amount of pixels per inch is low. Now, whenever you increase the value of DP, more pixels will take place per inch of your device screen which makes the image looks sharper and cleaner.
To increase the amount of DP on your phone come under the section of ‘Drawing‘, where you will find an option for the ‘Smallest Width‘. You will find a default value for that. However, according to my opinion, I suggest you set in between 400-420. It gives the best result.
#5. Make Device Display Look Weird
You can make your device display look weird using the simulate color space. For that head over to ‘Hardware accelerated rendering‘, where you should get the option for ‘Simulate Colour Space‘. Tap on that. You will get some color options for your smartphone display. It is really fun to make the display look weird. In my case, I am a big fan of the last one which is Tritanomaly (blue-yellow). It adds up the amazing look on my phone display.
So, these were that five developer options tricks, using that you can play with your smartphone. Hope you like this. Please make sure to leave a comment so we can know what you are thinking about our article!
