    FYI.. most of you techie guys/gals might know this already, but just for grins...I decided to turn off animations on my S7E...

    Phone is already very fast...now this baby is Turbo Charged! All the screen touches, edge panel swipes, app drawer launches, folder opens, happen in a blink of an eye! Amazing!

    Freakn awesome!

    I've done this on all my prior phones. But I find the S7 is fast enough that I'm enjoying the animations without feeling they make the phone slow. You're right, though, turning off animations really does speed up the perceived speed.

    When I first got my phone, I turned all of them off. After a day or two, I missed them and turned them back on.

    Yeah it cruelly quite like the animations so leave them on. They are fast enough on this phone that I don't feel they slow anything down, just make usage more satisfying somehow

    I just move them to .5 instead of 1. It's a nice mid point (literally) between standard and off.

    Yes, that's what mine is set to. Shutting them off entirely, made the interface seem un-smooth, almost jumpy, extremely fast, but jumpy. I like my OS to run smooth.
