How to enable developer mode on Galaxy S20
First, open the settings menu. You can also access the settings menu by sliding down from the notification bar and tapping on the same icon with the gear-shaped shape near the top of the display. You will see the prompt, then tap four times more to get to the settings. After you’ve finished, tap the back button. You will return to the base settings menu for the Samsung Galaxy S20. Once you return to the normal settings, a new option is displayed above the About device setting.
The Developer options option can be tapped to open the previously hidden developer menu. Once you’ve enabled Developer Mode on the Samsung Galaxy S20 you will see many settings that cater to the advanced user. This is the advantage of unlocking developer mode. These settings aren’t available for the average user.
The developer options will show you a variety of animation scale options, all set at 1x. Your phone will feel more responsive if you lower these values to 0.5x.
