Modify settings and increase the transition speed of animations :
Android phones include a secret developer options menu that is hidden from users until they unlock it. Inside that special menu is a series of three settings that control how fast a phone’s transition animations play.

Here’s all you need to do:
->>In the Settings app on your Android smartphone/tablet, scroll to the bottom and tap About phone
->>Find the entry titled Build number and tap it repeatedly seven times
->>Press the back button and you’ll see a new Developer options menu above About phone
->>Inside the Developer options menu, scroll down and find the following three settings: Windows animation scale, Transition animation scale and Animator duration scale. By default, each one is set to 1x. Open them one at a time and change 1x to .5x .
Thats it, animation transitions are now having high transition speed, and now your phone will feel much faster than before.
