Late last year Motorola shocked many when it announced and launched the impressive and powerful Motorola DROID Turbo, which offers a large HD display, a 20-megapixel camera and a massive battery that promises 48 hours of use. The device has gotten a bit popular with the new Moto X and here we will quickly show you how to take a screenshot in DROID Turbo.
DROID Turbo has many features and options to offer its owners, and now that the device has been available for several months, we’re starting to get more and more questions about it. One that always comes up is how to take a screenshot. It’s a simple simple thing to do and we’ll show you how.
Sometimes the easiest way to share a funny picture, save a text message for later, or show someone something on your phone is to take a screenshot or capture what’s shown on the screen and then send it as a text or email. image. It is extremely useful and very easy to do once you know how to do it. It’s been the same on most Android devices for years, and we’ll explain how after the break.
If you’ve owned or used an Android device in the last few years, you’ll be at home and probably won’t even have to look for how. However, if you’re new to smartphones, an Android converter that leaves iPhone or Windows Phone, or if you’ve only used Samsung devices before, you’ll want to know how. Below are a few simple steps you need to take to capture and save a screenshot.
For those who are confused. A screenshot (or screenshot) is essentially what our smartphones capture and save on the screen. This can then be edited or cropped to get exactly what you want, making it extremely useful for a variety of uses. From sharing emails, saving pictures on social sites and many more.
Before it takes forever to explain, here’s how to take a screenshot in DROID Turbo.
All you have to do is press and hold both the power button and the volume down key at the same time. Push both at the same time, pause for a moment and release. It’s that easy and right on that big 5.2 inch Quad-HD screen, you’ll hear a camera shutter-like sound and see a visual screen capture effect or animation.
Both the power and volume buttons are on the same side, and since the DROID Turbo is a fairly large smartphone, you’ll likely need both hands to perform this task. To get a good angle for a quick long press of this or both buttons, use one hand and turn the phone sideways. Sometimes this may take a few times to perfect the timing for beginners, but it’s really easy.
Here you will see that the screenshot has been saved. Now it can be accessed from the notification popup bar to view, share and even edit and you can also go to the phone gallery app and find it for more sharing options or edit it with the editing software of your choice.
If you try and it doesn’t work, try again. It’s all about hitting them at the same time with a short pause and then letting go. Timing is everything and it’s easy to understand.
You’re all done and that’s it. This same method works on almost all non-Samsung Android smartphones and tablets. Because they want you to press power and home button instead. The more you know, the better. Enjoy!
