Is It Safe To Enable 4x Msaa?

Is turning on 4x MSAA on any Android device safe? Well, the answer is more complex than yes or no. Let’s dig deeper to understand the potential risks and benefits of enabling this feature.

Firstly, let’s address the elephant in the room. Yes, turning on 4x MSAA can cause your phone to heat up quickly. This can be a significant downside for some users, as it affects your device’s performance and has long-term implications for your battery life.

When your device heats up frequently, it can damage your battery life and lead to decreased longevity. So, if you’re concerned about your device’s health, think twice before enabling 4x MSAA.

That being said, 4x MSAA can be a valuable tool for gamers who want to enhance their gaming experience. If your device doesn’t support your gaming skills or the game’s requirements to run smoothly, turning on 4x, MSAA, can give you that extra boost in performance you need to dominate your competition.

But that’s not all. 4x MSAA is also necessary when casting your Android screen on a projector or TV. This is because it increases the DPI (dots per inch), enhancing the screen’s visual quality when projected.

In conclusion, turning on 4x MSAA on your Android device can have pros and cons. While it can improve your gaming performance and screen quality when projecting, it can also cause your device to heat up and damage your battery life.
So, before you enable this feature, weigh the potential risks and benefits carefully and make an informed decision based on your individual needs and preferences.

If Developer Options is Not enabled

You must enable developer mode if you haven’t turned on the developer on your smartphone. Otherwise, you won’t be able to find and turn on 4x msaa settings.

This is one of the trending settings not amongst gamers but for the people who suffer from youtube lag or Minecraft lag.

In wholesome, Force 4X MSAA should be turned on when there’s any lag on the device or in any applications.

Enable 4X MSAA Without Developer Options?

Someone questioned us online whether he can enable 4xmsaa without developer options.

So, here is my honest answer and opinion.

Developer options are for the advanced fixing steps and have further options to enhance the smartphone user experience. Developer options include many options, from HW overlays update to a window, animation, and other transition scale options.

By tweaking into a developer, you might have a great experience or can worsen the current experience.

But don’t worry when I’m guiding you through all steps to find 4xmsaa and enabling it with screenshots and YouTube video tutorials.


I hope you enjoyed and learned how to enable force 4X MSAA on any Android device. For this tutorial-type article, I used my Samsung M33. However, the steps are pretty much the same for all devices. Do comment.
