3 ways To Take screenshots on Latest Tecno Phones
The Tecno Camon C9, as often pointed out, is the latest addition to the brand’s line of Camon Series. The smart phone not only runs Android marshmallow OS, it feature’s a refined version of Tecno’s Custom UI known as HiOS.
HiOS comes with quite a handful of features and of course, bugs. One of the somewhat noticeable feature is the ability to quickly take screenshots.
By default, swiping the screen from the top downwards and tapping the screenshot option automatically takes a shot of the current screen. But what if I tell you there are other ways? Well, we are about to find out.
Ways to easily take screenshots on Tecno Latest Smartphones
1. Taking screenshot via the notification tab
As earlier mentioned, simply swiping the screen from the top to the bottom to show the notification tab, and tapping on screenshot simply takes a shot of the current screen.
Using that option is perhaps, quite easy. However, check out the second step.
2. Taking screenshots using 3 Fingers
Yes, you can easily take screenshots on the Tecno Camon C9 using your fingers. How?
Simply place three of your fingers on any part of the screen and slide down a little. Cool right?
