Five ways to take screenshot on Galaxy S9 and S9+

Doing away with the hard home button since its last flagship device, Samsung is actually making it easier to take screenshot on Galaxy S9. While the Home + Power button combo may no longer work, Samsung now uses the combo that every other Android has been forever using. Follow this guide for all the ways you can use to take screenshots on Galaxy S9 or S9+.

1- The old-fashioned key combo, slightly tweaked

You can take screenshots on Galaxy S9 or its bigger sibling by using the hardware buttons or using gestures. If you want to take a screenshot using hardware keys, you will be using what other Android (except for Samsung) phones have been doing since forever.

  1. Open the screen or app that you want to capture. This could be any screen in your smartphone, inside an app or even the home screen.
  2. Press and hold Power and Volume Down keys together.

Your phone will do a little buzz to confirm the screenshot. You will also see a quick animation and can access the latest screenshot from the notification bar. Or, you can view all of the screenshots from Pictures > Screenshots.

2- Take screenshots on Galaxy S9 or S9+ using gestures

Taking a screenshot with hardware keys sounds old school to you? You can also use gestures to take a screenshot on your Samsung Galaxy S9. Once used to this, you will never go back to the awkward use of Power+Whatever-key combo.

  • Activate gestures: go to Settings > Advanced features. 
  • Enable Palm swipe to capture.

Once you have activated, you can now grab a screenshot on Galaxy S9 using gestures.

With hardware buttons

The first way is done with the physical buttons which LG has ingeniously placed on the back of the smartphone to better match how your hand actually holds a phone. However, this positioning has made it to be a bit trickier to take a screenshots by this traditional method, especially if you have bigger fingers:

  • You simply press and hold the power button (middle) and the volume down button (bottom) until you hear a sound or see an animation appear on the display.

How to take a screenshot on Android 2.3 and below - How to take a screenshot on Android PhonesIf you’re running Android 2.3 and below then you’re going to need to download an app to take a screenshot. This is where things get a little confusing as the effectiveness of the screenshot apps on offer vary from smartphone to smartphone.

If you’re willing to pay for an app to enable you to take screenshots on your Android smartphone – and you don’t want to go through the hassle of rooting your android then you should try the app No Root Screenshot It (£2.99). Bear in mind that “This application will instruct you to download and install a free desktop application on your Windows or Mac. Once installed, you must run the desktop application with your phone attached to your computer. This will enable screenshots on your phone”.

If you’re unwilling to pay for a screenshot app, the only advice we can offer is to search the Google Play store and trial a number of apps based on their star rating and find an app that works well with your device.

Manufacturer Shortcuts

Some manufacturers build special screenshot shortcuts into their pre-Android 4.0 devices. For example, on many Samsung Android devices, including the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S II (pre-Ice Cream Sandwich versions), you can press the Home and Power buttons at the same time to take a screen snapshot – in practice, you’ll press and hold the Home button, then quickly press the Power button. On the Galaxy S, press and hold the Back button and the Power button, or try pressing the Back button and double-tapping the Home button.

Different pre-Android 4.0 devices use a variety of different shortcuts – give it a Google and you might find that your device has a built-in screenshot shortcut you don’t know about.

Device-Specific Apps

These manufacturer-specific hooks into the OS allow some apps to provide an easy-to-use, on-device way to take screen image.  For example, Samsung Galaxy S, Galaxy Tab, and Galaxy S II (pre-ICS) users can use Screen Capture Shortcut Free to capture a screenshot without rooting their phones.

Another example of a device-specific app is AndroSS, which can take screen images on Android without root access on Tegra devices. If you’re not sure whether a device-specific app exists for your device, search the Google Play Store and see.

Root Apps

The reason you have to jump through the hoops above instead of simply installing a screenshot app is because of Android’s security model. Android doesn’t allow apps to view your device’s screen – this could be a security problem. For example, a malicious app could spy on your online banking sessions. There’s no permission apps can request to take snapshots of your screen.

To give an app permission to view your screen, you’ll need to root your Android. After rooting your Android, you can install one of the many screen snapshot applications that require root from Google Play. There are many options to choose from, although many of them are paid apps. aScreenshot is a free app that worked for me. You can take a screenshot in a variety of ways, including shaking your device, tapping a notification, or setting a delay. Other apps have similar features.
