How To Boost Your Android Gaming Performance With A Simple Trick
We could spend all day counting all of the things that make Android a great platform, but for real smartphone enthusiasts, the operating system’s tweakability is surely somewhere near the top of the list. If there’s functionality you’re looking for that your Android smartphone doesn’t have out of the box, the odds are pretty good that an app or a tweak is waiting to solve your problem.
Among the thousands and thousands of great tweaks out there though, there’s one in particular that is likely the easiest, simplest and most impactful, giving your Android phone a huge speed boost in a matter of seconds with no third-party software required.
Whether you have an old clunker of an Android phone or a brand new flagship handset like the Galaxy S6 or HTC One M9, there is one thing that holds true across the board: your phone can be faster. That’s right… as fast as Samsung and HTC’s new premium smartphones feel out of the box, they can still move even quicker.
And you’ll be shocked at how easy it is to speed them up without any third-party software, complicated “rooting” or other complex hacks.
Here’s what you need to do:
First, you’ll need to enable access to the hidden “Developer options” menu on your Android phone. To do that, simply tap the “About phone” option in Settings. Then tap “Build number” seven times and you’re done. Now you can just back out to the main Settings menu and you’ll find Developer options somewhere near the bottom of the list.
Hidden in the Developer options is a setting that can help improve your gaming experience. Simply scroll down and look for the Force 4x MSAA option. For those who don’t know, MSAA stands for multi-sample anti-aliasing.
If you enable this option, your Android smartphone will render games at the highest possible quality. It forces Android to use 4x multisample anti-aliasing in OpenGL 2.0 games and apps.
