    Go to developer options, and change the transition animation scales (all of them) to .5x instead of 1x.

    You'll be happy you did, and the 835 handles it handsomely.

    Also, you're welcome! :-)

    This seems to be a 'default' tip for very new Samsung phone. I honestly can't tell the difference anymore, but that's just me. (I mean, I notice the faster animation, but to me that's not necessarily a good thing...especially if it doesn't come with a noticeable improvement in performance)

    The new processor handles it well!

    I generally didn't bother doing it since it would really be any faster but it is with this one.

    I've heard this before but never tried it. Can someone explain what the setting change is or what it does?

    Always do this as one of the first adjustments.

    I've made this change on my S7 when
    I first got it and haven't noticed any lagging at all.

    It's the amount of time it takes to complete an animation. For example, if your animation takes 1 second (1x) to complete, setting it at .5x will make the animation take .5 seconds. It cuts the time in half to complete the animation and thus makes it faster.

    why would this not be set up this way when you get your phone new? is there a reason Samsung defaults to 1x?

    You can set it to 5, if you want the transactions to take 5 seconds,

    Funny the period was on previous line so it looked like 5 not ".5"

    Not necessary unless you think the animations slow down your device. If you have a nano second to spare and don't mind the animations, then it's not necessary. It's all personal taste.

    In general, software designers, whether they be from Samsung, Google, Apple, ... will set default animations speeds that give the overall best user experience to the largest number of users. They want the most people who try the phones in stores to have the best possible impression, so they will buy them. For some users, animation speed is important, but I suspect the manufacturers think smoothness and consistency are at least as important for more users. I personally don't see the point to speeding up the animations faster than the default 1x. Even though this phone is pretty fast, even at 1x, the animations often outrun the display of content, especially when an app needs to reload.

    Ugh. I hate the transitions and the first thing I do is set them all to zero. It seems lightning fast when I do that.

    Dumb question time. Where is developer options located?

    It's a 'secret' menu you need to enable. You need to go to your Settings, About Phone, then find the Software Info and tap on the Build number 7 times (I believe you'll get a 'warning' about it half-way).

    I can't decide if I should do this or not based off the comments. It seems like it doesn't actually make the phone faster, just an illusion since the animations aren't taking as long to process

    That's exactly what happens. It used to help since it would free up the processor to do other things rather than being busy with the animations, but at this point is really up to personal preference. It really doesn't offer any performance boost, at least not a noticeable one.

    I wish it was a slider available instead of preset values. 0.75 would be perfect for me
