    Could you guys supply me with a detailed description of what this option actually does? Does it adversely affect anything? The thing I've noticed with it enabled is smoother scrolling in certain apps; Netflix being the prime example. Any reason not to enable it?

    Thanks, guys!

    I saw this option the first day I got my phone and thought, meh. I'll do some research. Glad I found this. Everything runs So much smoother than it did before.

    Amazing.

    Nope. I didn't touch it. It was not enabled when I saw it So I left it alone until I figured out what exactly it did. I enabled it when I saw this and realized my whole phone just ran smoother. Apps and games. Excellent

    Didn't realize this was an option. I turned it on and didn't notice any changes (does it require a restart?), no crashes either.

    I didn't have to reboot. Just saw things run smoother. Transitions and games. The only thing I saw that someone else mentioned was fruit ninja bugged out when I tried to exit.

    My phone was actually almost dead when I saw this thread. I'm charging now and will report when I get a full battery.
