Even if you don’t plan on using it, it’s nice to know how to go about it in case the need arises. Now, there are two ways to take screenshots on LG smartphones which are pretty easy.
How To Screenshot On LG Phones Using Buttons
The first method to take screenshots on your LG Smartphone involves the use of your buttons, specifically the power button and volume down button. Pressing this two buttons simultaneously will take a screen of your current screen. You might need to press it a couple of time before you get it if you’re a first timer as both buttons need to be press at the same time for this feature to work.
This has been the universal way for not just LG Smartphone with the Android operating system to take screenshots but also for other Android devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop and higher to take screenshots. This means that you can use this method on any other Android smartphone and be able to get the same results – take a screenshot.
How To Screenshot On LG Phones Using Shortcut
Asides from being able to take screenshots on your LG Smartphone using the physical button, you can also take screenshots using the shortcut provided by LG in the pull- down options. All you have to do is Navigate to the page you would like to take a screenshot of, pull down the status bar/shortcuts and select the screenshot option which is known as “Capture+”. This will automatically slide the shortcut up and take a picture of your current screen. From here, you’ll be able to edit the screenshot and/or save it to your gallery.
Personally, I prefer this method as it is very simple and doesn’t require to keep pressing your buttons each time you want to take a screenshot which might end up wearing out the button earlier than expected. However, this is idle for those whose phone buttons are faulty or aren’t working. You can also download an app for taking screenshots from the Google Play store, some of which come with options to like Shaking your phone to take a screenshot or swiping three fingers down your screen to take a screenshot and many more.
