You are hitting the wrong area to get developers options. Within setting/about phone/software/build number you need to hit Build number 7 times to enable the developers options. Hitting Android Version multiple times enables a google cookie for the android version.

  • This screen shows your current android version status and further tapping on it will enable Android Easter egg. The N means you're using Android Nougat (7.1) on your device.

  • to enable developer options, go to settings->about phone, tap on build number multiple times (about 7 times), on completes it shows a message that you have enabled developer options.


  • At the top of the Developer options screen, you can toggle the options on and off.

  • Next option is USB debugging. This allows Android Studio and other SDK tools to recognize your device when connected via USB, so you can use the debugger and other tools.

  • Also contains several options to set audio, networking, display, media, monitoring, apps tweaks for your device.

N.B : please be careful on this option 'OEM unlocking' in developer options. If got enabled unexpectedly, your device will continue in boot loop. This option is often used to root device.
