    I generally like turning on USB Debugging, mostly because I am used to having it turned on for an old app that let me tether my device without having Verizon charge me for tethering (although I use the Wireless Hotspot now so that's no longer necessary). I also had to leave it on in order to root my old Android devices. What features do you turn on/off and why? No need to get specific if you're doing some "proprietary" stuff on your phone.

    If you haven't enabled Developer mode, you have to go to your Settings, About Phone, scroll down to Build Number and tap it several times. If you're not sure what Developer Mode is then you probably shouldn't bother enabling it since I know some people will want it just to have it without knowing what it's for.

    Oh yeah I forgot about the animation items. I wonder if it helps much considering how many cores we have on our devices, although from a minimalist's perspective, I can see wanting to get rid of all the extra "cutesy" stuff that is just meant as eye candy.

    All of the animations drive me insane along with the "bloop" sound. I turn that sound off as well. I like the minimalist feel, the phone is super fast with the animations at a minimum.

    I can see that "blooop" sound being a bit irritating. I'm not sure who that's supposed to impress.

    What is the default animation level, a 1.0?

    Yes. I set mine to .5 for animator and I turn the rest off (transition and window).

    I think turning animations down caused some issues for me with the flicker effect on the lock screen. Did anyone else notice this?

    The only thing that is more annoying than the bwip sound, is the person having serious issue with other ethnic background. Haven't you ever heard of the term,"Don't like it, then don't get it!" AIn't nobody forcing you to listen to it. All it takes is a little bit of brain knowledge and motor skill to flip that switch off. Even a baby knows how to to turn it off just by observing what each button does and just flip it off without a complaint.

    How, may I ask, do you turn off the "bloop" sounds? I cannot see this anywhere in my dev options menu although, it's probably staring me right in the face. The bloop sound I'm talking about is the one when you say, open a link in twitter or any other app, and it opens the browser about 3/4 screen in a window and the little dot you can touch to close, expand the window, etc. makes the sound when touched. Thats the one I'm concerned about. The other bloop sounds in the regular settings menu have already been disabled.

    Also, to go along with this post, I turn off all animations in dev options. So far, that is all.
