How To: Launch and Close Apps Faster on Your Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2

Launch and Close Apps Faster on Your Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2

Getting the task done as quickly as possible is usually the goal for most things in life. Well, most things. That's why efficiency is the first and main component of the McDonaldization of our society.

When working on your smartphone, having to deal with lag and slow applications can be very irritating. Even if it's only a matter of seconds—or milliseconds—you want your phone to work as smoothly and quickly as possible.

Well, if you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or Samsung Galaxy S3, among other newer Samsung smartphones, you can speed up your phone a bit with these simple tips.

Turn Off S-Voice

S-Voice is the Voice Assistant, similar to Apple's Siri, and is automatically enabled on your device. As the S-Voice app runs in the background, it causes your other apps to lag just a bit, so they don't launch and close as fast as they should.

So, if you want to minimize this lag, you have to open up the S-Voice application, go to S-Voice Settings and turn OFF "Open via the home key". That's it. You can see the difference it makes in the video below.

It's not mind blowing, but it does make a difference.

Modify Animation Speed

You can also change the animation speeds for your phones transitions to get things going a little faster. Go to Settings -> Developer Options -> Window/Transition/Anim­ator and then adjust the speed to as quick as you think is suitable to you.
