Developer mode on Samsung

Last update:

The "Developer Mode" on Samsung devices, like other Android devices, is a feature designed for application developers and advanced users. Offers additional options and settings that are not available in the standard settings menu. Some of its functions include:

USB Debugging: Allows the device to communicate with a computer for application development and debugging.

Animation speed: You can increase or decrease the speed of system animations to test application performance.

Show touches and pointer position: Useful for developers who need to see exactly how touches are registered on the screen.

Limit background processes: Controls the number of processes that can run simultaneously in the background.

GPU performance mode: Allows you to see how graphics are rendered on the screen, useful for developing games and graphic applications.

Install applications downloaded from sources other than the Google Play or Galaxy Store application store.

It is important to remember that some of these options may affect the performance of the device or its normal operation, so it is recommended to use them only if you know what you are doing.
