Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Disable Background Motion Effect

The Background Motion Effect, the Parallax Effect, or, simply put, the 3D look of a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 home screen can be pretty amazing. You look at the screen and the icons seem to stand out. You move the display and everything seems to move with it. The apps, the wallpaper, it is all caught under the spell of this 3D illusion.

We can’t argue that, it certainly looks amazing. But we have to ask, do you really need it? Do you know that, in order to take advantage of all that, the gyroscope and the accelerometer sensors work at full speed? It might not seem like a serious allocation of resources, but when even the smallest system resources count, you might not be happy with having this thing turned on.


And here’s the problem – the moving background effect or this background motion effect of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 cannot be disabled. It comes active by default and, for the current firmware version, there’s no accessible setting that would let you turn it on.

We’re not saying this to disappoint you. We’re just trying to show you that there are a lot of other people who are seeking for an answer on how to disable the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 background motion effect. The only available advice, for the time being, is to keep a close look on all the future firmware updates. Maybe one of them will come up with a fix!
