How to Take Screenshot on Samsung Galaxy S8 Device

I know you will be wondering why I'm coming up with this article - right? Ofcourse, there shouldn't be any post regarding how to take screenshots on Android phones, because even a new born baby can actually do that without you teaching him or her. But Samsung Galaxy S8 now has a different step for taking screenshots on the phone. That's what i will be teaching you now.

Before now, by just pressing the home and power buttons at the same time on later Samsung Galaxy devices will allow you to capture the screen, but Galaxy S8 has got another way to capture the screen.

To take a screenshot on Samsung Galaxy S8 device, you have to press the Power + Volume Down buttons to do that. This probably makes switching from most Android devices easier, but someone transitioning from the S7 (or earlier) might be a bit confused.

If pressing physical buttons is too much work, you can always hold down on the home button to open Google Assistant, and press the 'Share Screenshot' button. The S8 also allows you to take a screenshot by swiping the edge of your hand across the screen (while still keeping it on the screen). Plenty of options for your screenshot-taking needs.

Once you actually capture it, the S8 has a neat feature you can use called Scroll capture. Like several browser extensions, this scrolls down whatever content you are viewing and adds more to the screenshot.

How i wish stock Android phones has this feature. I hope to see Android phones in the future adopts this feature too.

    1. Probably the RAM of that phone is too poor

    3. J8 ram is 1.5gb.its OK. That 1.5gb is at par or a little higher than Tecno's 2g.so not bad. Something is wrong. Or maybe the phone is old and so you have used the ram alot by installing and uninstalling many apps on it several times. If you go to Samsung care to reload the OS, it will be back as new.
