Google Nexus 5 Featured

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.

  1. Press and hold the “Power” and “Volume Down” buttons simultaneously, as shown on the image below
  2. While still holding the buttons – wait for about a second, until the phone shows you the animated screenshot capturing process
  3. Release the buttons
