Product Ambassador: How to take a screenshot with LG G3

Sprint Product Ambassador

The other day I needed to take a screenshot on my LG G3 and did not know how because each Android phone is a little different on how that works. If you are looking for information on how to take a screenshot on your LG G3, I would like to help with that. LG has provided a couple of options for taking a screenshot and I am going to provide the 2 I use.


Where to press to take a screenshot and an example of a screenshot

First option is using the hard key method:

  1. Find a screen you want/need to capture
  2. Press in the middle between the volume down and power button (circled above).
    • This will press both buttons at the same time and take a screenshot for you
  3. Screenshot has been taken, saved under Pictures folder and ready to share
    • Once taken, pull down on Status Bar
    • Select Share on the screenshot
    • Then select the method to share the screenshot

Example of where QuickMemo is found in Quick Settings and screenshot using QuickMemo

The other option I use for taking a screenshot is using QuickMemo. There are a couple of options for pulling up QuickMemo and I am going to provide the steps for how I do it.

  1. Make sure QuickMemo is one of the options through Quick Settings
    • Quick Settings has an edit tab that allows the user to select settings or apps to feature in Quick Setting along with order they appear in.
  2. Find a screen you want to capture
  3. Pull down on Status Bar
  4. Select QuickMemo
  5. Enter a note, circle key information to be captured
  6. Select Save icon that looks like a floppy disk
  7. Select Gallery or QuickMemo+ for where you want to save your screenshot
  8. Then Ok

Depending on what I want to capture, the hard key option is the fastest and easiest to share method. The QuickMemo option provides the ability to highlight and apply a note if needed.

If you have not had a chance to see a LG G3 in person, visit a Sprint store near you to all the features a LG G3 offers.
