The Samsung Galaxy S20’s recent release has many new features, controls, and security settings. Google chose to keep some options hidden from the average user. You can access many of the hidden features on the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ Plus by activating developer mode.
Developer Mode allows you to control additional aspects of your device, change settings or enable USB debugging. To enable this hidden menu, go to settings.
You can unlock the developer menu to install third-party software, ROMs, and/or hack your phone. It is very easy and takes only 5-6 taps on the screen. Read on to see the complete instructions and visual breakdown.
Do I need to enable developer mode?
The Samsung Galaxy S20 will not suffer any damage if you enable developer options. Developer Mode will only show options that Google has hidden for a reason. However, those who want to modify their device’s settings will have to access some of these settings.
Enable Developer Mode on Galaxy S20
Go to the settings menu first. To get to the settings menu, slide down the notification bar. Tap the same icon in the top-right corner of the screen. Once you reach the settings, select the “About device” option and tap the same icon near the top right of the display. Next, select the back button to return to the original base settings menu of the Samsung Galaxy S20.
You’ll then be able to return to normal settings. A new option will appear above the “About device” setting. Tap on it to access the developer menu. You’ll find many settings that are geared towards advanced users after you enable Developer Mode on your Samsung Galaxy S20. These settings are not available to basic users, which is the main benefit of unlocking the developer menu. You’ll find animation scale options that can be set to 1x when you look at the developer options. These can be reduced to 0.5x to make your phone feel faster.
