  5. Once you have saved the file after entering the above commands, reboot your device. That’s it! You have successfully rectified the touch responsiveness issues on your One Action.

Here, we are forcing the Android OS to use GPU for rendering each 2d frame in apps. And since Android uses frame by frame rendering of the screen normally, the above line of codes will offload the rendering to GPU by a vast amount. Apart from that, it will also increase processing, provide better RAM management and make the overall experience much smoother.
