Android’s hidden developer menu, called Developer options, contains a lot of cool settings. You can enable wireless ADB, display fake GPS location, have the screen always run at 90 Hz, or even force incompatible apps to run in dark mode.
The thing is, these settings are hidden for a reason. This is because Google does not want beginners to accidentally come across this menu and turn off some important function, nor do they want to confuse them with a long list of powerful options, which are not explained very well.
This is also a warning that if you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s probably best not to mess with Developer options.
