    Settings /about phone/software information
    Scroll down to 'build mode'
    Keep tapping that until it says developer mode turned on (about 7 taps)
    But only do this if you know what you are doing.
    Any changes could seriously screw up your nice new phone

    It lets free volume to Max level, ignore secure vol invented by producer. Just your BT headphones, speakers, car audio etc play as loud as its own technical limitations

    GPU is more powerfull than CPU and phone is faster and more battery efficient with these settings toggled on

    Does turning that on render the device capable of being rooted?

    Golly, if my device was any faster than it is now, (without those toggled on), it'd be running the 1 minute mile

    No. But it lets you do a few of the things that you might otherwise need root for.

    Been using developer options for years and I've never seen a setting called "force GPU I to overdrive", have I been missing it all this time, or is it a setting that is new to the Note9? I'm still using Note 8 and I have no such setting.

    So the last 2 on your list are the same thing?

    First is
    Force GPU rendering
    Second
    Turn off hardware overlays
    Always use GPU for screen compositing
    Second option must be turn on after every reboot, it switches off everytime you power off your phone
    I don't use third GPU tweak, as called turn on 4x MSAA sth antyalias for graphics but makes stuff looking to soapy to my eyes

    You can also do heaps of other stuff like turn off active apps and check running services, destroy any activity soon as you leave it and myriad other tricks..

    Disable Max volume should be a default option. Btw, I read online that forced GPU rendering may cause lower battery life but makes everything smooth. Are you sure battery life is not affected? I haven't tried that feature yet.
