turn off Mi3 Screen effects?

Mar 31, 2014
Hi everyone, I just purchased my Mi3 Phone yesterday. All's well thus far. Except for the following issues.
(Pardon me if this is a repeat topic)

1) Is there any way to turn off the screen transition effects? For eg, from home screen to whatspp back to home screen. The transition effects are making me quite dizzy =X

2) Also, is there any way to turn off autocorrect ? I am using swift keyboard now..

Many thanks!
