Mini-tip for One (and One X/X+ and such): Turn Animations Off

To simply turn off animations between certain screens and such, to make things a bit more “straight on”. I always do this myself.

Assuming you’re on Sense 5/Android 4.2.2:

First you need to enable Developer options (if you haven’t done that already). Then you simply to Settings > Developer options > Advanced > Animations, where you untick it. That’s it.
