We play on consoles, computers, as well as tablets and mobile phones. What if we want to take a picture with a record high result as a souvenir or brag about it to friends? The function of creating a screenshot comes to the aid, i.e. a screenshot (screenshot). And we are going to explain how to take a screenshot on Samsung (S8, S7, S6, S5, S4, J3, J5, J7, A3, A5)
How to Take a screenshot on Samsung Galaxy S7 (Edge) and S8 (Plus) and Note 4
Samsung’s latest models offer two ways to do this. The first one is a key combination. The second is the corresponding touch on the screen.
It doesn’t matter if you use the first version of Edge (S7) or Plus (S8), both methods of saving images work.

The listed models of Samsung smartphones can take a screenshot. As in the case of more expensive models, the pictures are stored in the same place in the gallery.
