How To Speed ​​Up Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 can run faster with a few simple tricks. We will show users how to upgrade their Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to make it even faster thanks to these tricks.

Before we begin, understand that to do a few of these tweaks, the user must put the phone in developer mode. If that scares you, skip the first part.

To get started, open the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Settings. To open the Settings app, swipe down from the top of the screen and select the gear icon in the upper right corner.

Shut Down or Speed ​​Up Samsung Galaxy Note Visual Options

We’re running Lollipop, the latest version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 operating system, on an AT&T phone. Some things may look a little different on your model.

Usually find the section under the tab in Settings. Scroll down until you see the Build number in the list. Tap 7 times until the phone tells you that Developer mode is on.

Tap the back button, the arrow at the top of the screen, or use the button next to the home button at the bottom of the screen. You will now see an item named Tap to open.

Scroll down until you see the Window animation scale towards the bottom of the screen. Tap this to bring up the options box. Now lower the animation scale by choosing a smaller X factor. If you don’t care about window animation, turn it off for fastest performance. Now do the same for Transition animation scale and Animator duration scale.

All of these control features control how the operating system displays window-to-window transitions on the screen or the movement of objects on the screen. These are just glaring so turning them off won’t hurt the phone and will make it appear faster.

Close Unused Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Apps

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comes with some useful apps but trivia that most users never open. These can sometimes start the background, slow things down and even drain battery life. So we will turn them off in Settings.

Inside Settings, swipe to the tab that sits all the way to the right. Tap on it to see installed apps. Swipe to show list, second from right. Find apps you’ll never use and tap the app’s name. For example, I never plan to use AT&T Navigator. So I’m going to tap it and then the DISABLE button. The Note 4 will warn you that this may cause errors. If you’re careful, this doesn’t happen with most of these apps. Tap OK and move on to the next app.

If you find that you want to restore one of the apps you disabled, find the OFF tab on the far right in Application Manager. Tap on the app you want to open and tap on it. This restores the application.

Closing apps not only prevents them from launching, but also removes them from the clutter-free App Drawer making it easy to find apps to use.

Turn Off Home Screen Transition Effect and Flipboard Briefing

Touchwiz, the default user interface on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, comes with transition effects that give a nice effect to the user when they switch between home screens. Turn this off to speed up scrolling a bit.

Open Settings and find the tab. Tap , and then tap . There are three options. Choose turn off. The phone also opens this settings page when the user press and hold on the home screen and select Home screen settings or press the multitasking button on the left of the screen. Again, choose.

Turn Flipboard Briefing off by going back one screen and unchecking it. Flipboard Briefing uses the pre-installed Flipboard app to show the news on the screen just to the left of the home screen.

This doesn’t speed things up much, but every little bit helps.

S Mute

Those who prefer Google’s voice interaction to Samsung’s S Voice can speed things up a bit by turning off double-tap to open S Voice. Users set up S Voice before turning off the double tap feature. So, double tap the home button and it will bring up the setup wizard. Follow the instructions to bypass this. After going through the wizard, the S Voice app looks like the image below. Tap the three dots in the top right to open the menu.

The phone will warn you that if you change these settings, it may not recognize your voice. Hit it anyway. In the top right is an ON/OFF slider. Tap to flip. This disables the feature and as it no longer listens to your voice, it frees up some of the phone’s memory and speeds things up a bit.

Uninstall Apps, Clear Cached Data and Delete Junk Files

There are apps you have installed that you may no longer use. Remove them or at least clear cached data. This speeds things up because the phone doesn’t work as hard as reading files in storage.

Open Settings and find the tab again. Open Application Manager and search for apps you don’t use. Tap the app and then select . If you don’t want to install it but still don’t use it much, just clear the data.

Now open the My Files app and search for files you no longer need. The biggest data hogs are music, video and image files. If you don’t really care about losing them, be sure to back them up first. Select the files and then tap the Share button from the toolbar at the top of the screen. Then upload them to a place like Dropbox.
