You may have probably come across it while playing with your smartphone and total ignored it because you felt it had no use. In either case, if you can read the article completely, you would understand what USB Debugging is all about and how to enable USB debugging for your Samsung Galaxy S4 or any other Android smartphone.

What Is USB Debugging Mode?

USB Debugging Mode is a mode that can be enabled in your Samsung Galaxy S4 or any other Android smartphone. What USB Debugging mode does is to ease a connection between your Samsung Galaxy S4 and a PC with Android SDK (software development kit.) The Android SDK is a suite that aids the development of Android apps. A programmer uses this suit to code apps on a PC, test’s the application on the device and this can only be possible when the device is enabled for USB Debugging which allows the apps to be transferred to the device. Outside this important system access level, USB Debugging can also be used for non-development-related issues. It gives you absolute control of your smartphone.

    Why do you have to press the build thing so many times? Why cant they just enable developer options from the start without doing that? Kinda odd lol.
