In my quick preview of the Galaxy S4 I mentioned that Samsung has done a great job in simplifying the settings arrangement on the Galaxy S4 hence demystifying the notion that Android devices are difficult to use. While that is appreciated since Android devices are way too mainstream and not everyone does geeky stuff on their devices, it comes at a cost. Like missing the all too familiar Developer Options menu and its essentials like USB debugging. Stuck not knowing where to fish the USB debugging option from your Galaxy S4’s settings app? Relax; here are a few quick steps on how you can easily do that.
From your home screen, hit the soft menu button and select Settings. From the settings menu select the last tab i.e. More. Then go to About device. There you’ll find the familiar entries like Model number, Android version, Kernel version and the Build number. It is the Build number that we are interested in. Tap on it several times (4-5 times at most. Never mind though as it will continuously indicate how many times till you enable the Developer Options). Once enabled, go a step behind using the back button. You should be able to see Developer Options just after Date and time and before About device. That’s it!
