Hey guys, OP here of course. What I was referring to has been figured out by all you wonderful people! Im guessing full screen animation is disabled by default because I hadn't touched it since I brought it home from the store.
And to answer question about the iPhone, in a very simple answer, I disliked everything. The only thing I liked was that all my music was integrated seemlessly. An hour of two of my time and a 32GB Microsd card fixed that.
