How To Take Screen Shots on Tecno Android Phones Without Rooting

There will always be moments you would love to take screenshots on your Android phone to save or share with friends.  It’s something I love doing and I capture screen shots on my Tecno M7 easily without any external app. Root is NOT required.

So, How?

Whenever I want to capture any screen on my Tecno, I simply hold down the lower volume button and the lock screen (power) button simultaneously for some seconds till I hear a click sound.

The volume button is on the left side while the lock screen button is on the right hand side of the Tecno M7. 

Taking Screenshot on Tecno

The screen shots save automatically in the screenshot folder of the Tecno’s Gallery app. Right in the folder, you can edit or crop the pictures and share anywhere.

That’s all.

Let me hear from you if this works on your Tecno Android phone.

I was at a party and don’t know what I pressed but saw I had mistakenly taken a screen shot..and figured the m7 has screen shot and when searching for how to take the screen shot I found your blog… How did u know about it? Cos it WORKS! And I bet you don’t work for techno.. Twitter @korntraband thanks alot

    you really are the man… that is of course if you re masculine…. I wasn’t actually looking forward for the post to be based on m7. cuz my search was on m3 but the same process worked for it…. normally I wouldn’t be wasting my time commenting on posts but I admired your straight forwardness… ……,
    can you give me a HTML link of this site…… I do not think I need to explain the reason for asking because I believe you know the uses of HTML.
