Cannot access Developer Options on Asus Zenphone 3 (Android 7.1.1):

  • Settings
  • About
  • Tap 6 times on Android Version

All I get is an 'N' on the screen:

  • 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.

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.
