How you can take a screenshot on any Android phone

Every Android phone is different on it own, and so is taking screenshots with them. Even though Android 4 introduced simple screenshots for all with the handy power-and-volume-down-key combo, nailing it can still be tricky. That's why some phone makers have introduced new methods. We're here to help: Just find your Android phone on the list below to learn the various ways to snap, share, and save a screenshot.
Acer phones
Hold down the power and volume-down buttons for a couple of seconds.
Pull down the notification panel to reach quick settings and tap the Screenshot icon.

LG phones

ZTE phones

Google Assistant
On supported phones, you can also ask Google Assistant to take a screenshot for you. For you to get that done, when you're on the screen you want to snap, just say, "OK Google, take a screenshot," and it will oblige, saving a picture of the screen below the Assistant interface. So if you want to capture the Google Assistant screen itself, you'll have to use the hardware buttons.

Save and share
Once you've snapped your screenshot you can create a shortcut to it in the notification panel. Tap it and you'll be able to edit or share it.

Finally here, if you want to back up your screenshots to Google Photos, you might need to tell your phone to do so. Open the sidebar in Google Photos, then Device Folder. Tap Screenshots, and flip the Back up & sync toggle. From there on out, all of your screenshots will be backed up to your camera roll in Google Photos.
