Increase battery backup

As I mentioned in the introduction that you can increase your phone battery life. There are few settings that you need to change to increase your phone battery 20-30%.

Basically, you have to turn off all the animations. Every time you open an app there is smooth animation that looks good.

If you turn off all of these animations off then not only you will your phone battery life but this process will increase device performance.

You may not like it in the starting but sooner you will get used to it.

All you have to do is open the developer settings that you have enabled just recently.

Scroll down until you don’t find the window animation scale. Click on it, and change it to animation off.

The same is true for the Transition animation scale and Animator duration scale.

Showing taps & pointer location

if you are recording some kind of tutorial video then showing taps and pointer location can help your viewers to get understand the process.

To turn it on inside the develop options, enable show taps and pointer location.

show taps will show a white circle every time you tape on something.

While pointer is like drawing lines as shown in the screenshot.
