Nexus 5 is one of the most popular Android smartphones around the world. However, recently I noticed, that screenshot taking feature on this device is slightly different from another Android smartphones.
Every Android smartphone has a built-in feature of taking screenshots. When you take a screenshot on your smartphone – it generates an image with the content of your device screen and saves it locally among your photos. Usually Android smartphones create a subfolder named “Screenshots” inside your Images/Camera folder and place all the screenshots taken there.
Google Nexus 5, as expected, has a screenshot taking feature too. So, let’s discover the process in details.
- Press and hold the “Power” and “Volume Down” buttons simultaneously, as shown on the image below
- While still holding the buttons – wait for about a second, until the phone shows you the animated screenshot capturing process
- Release the buttons
Now you are able to locate the screenshot taken from your Nexus 5 smartphone inside the “Screenshots” folder in Photos.
