Step 1: Play Flappy Android

Go to settings/about device

tap android version a number of times.

tap on the lollipop that comes up a number of times, then long press it.

when you tap the screen, flappy android will begin.

it is very hard and the highest point i achived is 3!!!

Step 2: Change the Default Storage Space to ExtSD

This is very helpful if you have a 32 gig sd lying around.

You can download anything on your device easily.

Settings/storage/sd card

Step 3: Safe Mode

Long press the power button and then long press power off.

Step 4: Auto Brightness

Settings/display/adaptive brightness

Step 5: Power Saving

Settings/battery/menu/power saving

Step 6: Smart Lock

One of my personal favourites.

This automaticly unlocks the screen when you;
look at the phone,
say the magic word,
enter the magic room.

Settings/security/smart lock

Step 7: Smart Awake

Just double tap the screen when locked to unlock

Settings/smart awake

Step 8: Developer Options

First go to settings/about device and tap the build number 5 times.

When it says you are now a developer go to settings/developer options.

The best option is the animation scale
