How to make your Galaxy S4 faster

Despite the arrival of the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S4 has not yet lost all its majesty, being a very popular device among our readers. Despite its powerful Snapdragon 600 processor, many of the smartphone's built-in software functions have made it somewhat slow. I have made some suggestions to speed up the performance of your Galaxy S4, all without root access. Oh, and check out this article for general tips on how to speed up your device.

Adjust or disable animations

One feature that can slow your smartphone down is animations, both for popup windows and transitioning between screens. These animations are the ones that appear when you activate an application, or click on a section of the device settings, for example. Not everyone knows that you can configure or even disable these animations.

To do so, you must first enable developer options in your S4 settings. If they are not already enabled, go to General> About Device. Then. continuously click Build Number at see the message Developer mode enabled.

<p>After that, go back to the general settings and select <strong>Developer Options</strong>, which will appear above <strong>About the device</strong>. Then select the Subcategory Drawing and click individually on <strong>Window Animation Scale</strong>, <strong>Transition Animation Scale</strong> and <strong>Animation Duration Scale</strong>. The default is set to 1x. If you change it to 0.5x, it will double the animation speed. Turning it off completely will make the device much faster.</p>

Remove lock screen animation effect

Samsung added superfluous animations to the Galaxy S4 unlock process. They are very nice and pleasing to the eye, but slightly delay the screen unlocking process. Luckily, this is an easy question to change. Go to the settings, select Device and Lock screen. The unlocking effect will be Ripple or Water Color. Select Disabled.

<h2><strong>Get rid of S Voice</strong></h2>
<p>Samsung has integrated S Voice into its TouchWiz, a Siri-style voice command app. It opens by double-clicking the home button, and then you can ask things like the weather to S Voice. Although the function has evolved a lot since the Galaxy S3, not all users like it. If it is one of them, you can turn it off and speed up the process back to the start screen when in any app, because the system automatically waits for any second touch to activate S Voice, causing a slight reaction pause. To delete it, simply disable S Voice in the settings.</p>
<ul>
<li>Double click on the start button;</li>
<li>Select the menu button and choose Settings;</li>
<li>Uncheck the box to <strong>Open via home key</strong>.</li>
</ul>

Enable quick view of notifications

This tip doesn't speed up your S4's performance, but makes your interaction with the device more dynamic. Thanks to a Samsung function called Quick view, you only need to move your hand over the device or hold it so that notifications temporarily appear on the screen. Icons for calls, text messages and battery status, among others, will be shown. You won't be shown who called or wrote, but there are other third-party apps that also offer this feature. That way, you don't have to click the start or power button when you've received a notification.

<h2><strong>Try a launcher</strong></h2>
<p>TouchWiz is not a very light interface. If you want to customize your device, giving it a new look, new features and breaking speed, I advise you to install a new launcher to replace the native skin. There are a large number of launchers available, such as Apex, Nova and Go Launcher Ex. Check out our list of launchers and choose your favorite.</p>
