How to Take a Screenshot on ZTE Blade 3
If an affordable middle class smartphone is what you are searching for, ZTE Blade 3 often stands out as one of the most prominent choices. Neat design, sturdy built and solid performances make the device well worth its value, earning the Chinese manufacturer a decent market share.
Apart from a few advanced functions, the Blade 3 also features all the basic options a modern smartphone needs. One of such commands is screenshot, a simple function allowing you to take the photo of any given screen. So in case you are wondering on just exactly how to take a screenshot on ZTE Blade 3, all you have to do is to follow a few easy steps we’re about to list below.
Before venturing any further, we’ll take a moment and point out that the first step of actually setting up the screen you need a photo of was omitted, seeing that it pretty much goes to show without saying. So without further ado, the steps for taking a screenshot on ZTE Blade 3 are as follows:
1) Press and hold the Power key and the Volume Down button simultaneously. It’s of great importance that you hold the two keys down simultaneously, meaning at the same time, or the command won’t take effect.
2) Wait until you’ve heard the camera shutter sound. The brief sound marks the command’s success, so once you’ve heard it, there’s no need to double check anything or repeat the process, as it can only result in double photos.
3) Check the gallery section for your photo. If everything went as noted, the image should be easily located in jpg format.
So as you can see, the standard procedure is as simple as it can get. But if you are looking for a more complex, or even advanced way to take a screenshot on ZTE Blade 3, we could recommend trying out an app called No Root Screenshot It. Coming with a $4.99 price tag, the app makes the screenshot command more simple yet more elaborate. The screen photo can now be taken with a click of a button, but a set of advanced functions, such as screenshot delay or format adjustment allows you to set up things to minute details.
Finally, to have just about everything covered, we’ll dedicate a paragraph to the buttons required for carrying out the screenshot command. As previously noted, the specific buttons required are the Power key and the Volume Down button. The Power key is the button used for switching the screen, and the entire device for that matter, on or off, nicely tucked in on the smartphones upper right side. The Volume Down key on the other hand, is the lower of two-key set located pretty much on the opposite side of the power button – on the upper middle left part of Blade 3.
That about wraps it up; as you can see, the function is as simple as it can get, it’s all merely a matter of knowing which button to push and how. Also, make sure to check out the clip below for detailed video instructions.
