Sprint Product Ambassadors: Taking a Screenshot on the Note Edge

Sprint Product Ambassador

Taking a screenshot has always been different on every different phone.  Samsung has provided not one, but three ways to capture screenshots!

First, you can press the power and home buttons and grab a shot of both the main screen and the edge display:

Next, you can set up gesture controls (Apps --> Settings --> Motions and gestures -> Palm swipe to capture --> set to 'On) and swipe the edge of your hand across the display right to left.  This also captures the main screen and edge display.

Finally, and most powerfully in my opinion, you can use the S-Pen.  This provides you with many cool options. Pull the pen out, hover it over the screen and click the button on the pen to bring up the 'Air Command' menu.  You can use a rectangular 'Smart Select' which grabs a portion of the screen and performs text recognition on it, allowing you to save or share the text or the image.  You can use a free-form Image Clip to capture just a relevant part of the screen and share it, or you can use Screen Write and get the whole screen brought up to where you can annotate it with text, drawings etc.

Obviously, I need to get moving more!


Sharing what you're seeing and doing on your phone is a key part of a smartphone - the Samsung Note Edge takes it one step farther with the Air Command menu and the S-Pen!
