How to unlock developer settings on the Galaxy S4: tap seven times on the build number
posted by Daniel P. / May 01, 2013, 8:26 AM
These range from ways to visualize your touch interaction, to deeper access you should tinker with only if you know what you are doing.
The S4 developer settings are actually hidden where they are on Nexus devices, so if you do the same steps, you'll be able to get to the geeky stuff under the hood in a few taps:
The phone actually warns you how many taps away you are from doing the dev jig, so you'd know you've followed the instructions closely when you see it.

Revolutionary. /sarcasm Why do you have to unlock it in the first place?

Just little Easter Eggs, that's all. So people who don't know what they mean don't end up accidentally turning something on or unchecking something. Not a big deal. Just fun for people who like to say they've "cracked it open." Good Morning.

I don't quite get it ? What do you mean unlock ? Like firmware unlock or as in GSM unlocked ? I thought you have to buy unlock codes ( which cost money ) to unlock the phone for every other GSM network ?
