Capture what that is on the screen of your smartphone may be required many times. Either you need to send some info that you can’t copy as text or save it as a file, you need to do a screenshot. Luckily almost every Android phone (after Android Kitkat) is coming with native Android screen capture and you can take it by pressing volume down (or Up in some cases) and power button simultaneously. It is that easy and anyone can capture screen of their phone without installing any 3rd party app or rooting the phone.

Apart from the inbuilt screenshot taking feature, different mobile companies are adding more convenient ways to take screenshots in their custom version of Android that is called UI. Form instance, Huawei has its own custom Android based OS Emotion UI, Xiaomi has its own MIUI and Meizu has Flyme OS which is highly optimized and ridiculously modified that makes it pretty different from stock Android.

After Flyme 6, this custom Android based software has got so many interesting features such as private space, that enables user to isolate private apps, private files using a different password or fingerprint pattern.

Since Flyme 6, Meizu has added a convenient button to capture screen. When you draw notification slider, you will find a seccsior icon button with name Screenshot.

All you need to do is tapping on this icon to capture whatever on the screen. It saves to gallery automatically.
