How to take a screenshot on the Samsung Galaxy S8 with gestures

Gestures on the flagship management has long been used Samsung. With a gesture can do and why. Spend the edge of his hand over the screen from the left edge to the right or vice versa. A typical shutter sound will alert you when a snapshot. Disable and enable this option in the section Motion and gestures settings.


Using the physical keys

The most obvious way to perform the screenshot is to use the physical keys. How do we do it? We will only have to press the power button and the volume down button at the same time , holding until we hear the shooting sound of the camera. On the screen we will also see a sample of the capture taken.

By gestures

Samsung mobile phones allow you to make screen captures with gestures. Specifically to do this we will have to slide the screen from left to right or vice versa with the edge of the hand . The hand we have to place it as if we were to make a karate blow.

However, before it works we will have to enable it in the system settings menu, in advanced options.

Smart Captures

Finally, Samsung allows you to perform some advanced functions when capturing the screen. One of the most interesting is to be able to capture while moving the screen . This will allow us, for example, to capture a complete web page. We can also capture a list of things that occupy more than what is seen at a glance on the screen.

To use it we will have to capture the screen with one of the previous methods and activate it in the menu that appears in the bottom part . At that time the screen will scroll to capture more content.

And these are the three methods we have to perform a screenshot on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 +. Highlight that all the captures we make will be saved in the Photo Reel Captures album .
