The Samsung Galaxy S6 was a fantastic device when it was released, but it is not as new as it once was and with apps getting more resourcing demand you could find the S6 to be slowing down. Luckily there is a hidden feature that you can change that will instantly speed up your device.

The tip will help speed up your Samsung Galaxy S6 helping reduce the impact of TouchWiz and the growing demand of apps.on the system resources. The best bit is there’s nothing extra to install or tons of settings to change, just a simple case of changing a setting with developer options enabled.

The little hack revolves around the animations applied to transitioning between windows and turning the device on or off. By simply turning this off, it contributes to making the device seem extremely snappy and fast by reducing the delay applied to the animation.

First, you’ll need to enable the Developer Options hidden menu. To do this, go into Settings -> About Device and scroll down to “Build Number”. Now, tap on “Build Number” five times and you’ll see a notification saying that “Developer mode has been enabled”.

With that hidden menu now enabled, we can head on into it to begin fastening up our Samsung Galaxy S6.

  1. Head on in to Developer Options in Settings.
  2. Scroll down to the Drawing section.
  3. Of interest here is the Window Animation ScaleTransition Animation Scale, and Animator Duration Scale.
  4. Click on them individually to change the scale.

You are able to turn the animations off completely, or set them to 0.5x (default is 1x) so the animations will be double speed for those who would like to retain them.

You’ll notice your Samsung Galaxy S6 feels substantially quicker. Let us know your comments in the section below.

  1. WOOOOWWWWW!!!! I’m am SHOCKED – I adjusted each of the 3 settings from the default 1x each was set at, to 0.5x each. The difference is literally night and day! I cannot believe it! I really didn’t expect anything at all, but this is absolutely amazing! Thank you SO MUCH!!

  2. I’m blown away. As KLK said above, I also adjusted each setting to 0.5x and it really is like night and day. Earlier this year I went and purchased the S21 Ultra because both of my S6 Actives slowed down too much but I still use them for different things on a daily basis and this is absolutely AMAZING!!!
    Thank you, you ROCK!
