LG G Flex Screenshot Tutorial

Save what you see on the screen as an image

You can take a screenshot on your LG G Flex to capture everything currently visible on the screen. There are two physical buttons on the phone that you must press simultaneously to make this work.

Why would you take a screenshot on your phone? Pictures you find online can usually be saved to your device with a tap-and-hold, but for non-image content that you still want to save as a picture file — such as a frame in a video or text on a web page — you have to take a screenshot.

Although the directions below are specific to the LG G Flex phone, they may still apply to other Android phones including those made by Samsung, Google, Huawei, Xiaomi, etc.

How to Take an LG G Flex Screenshot

Taking a screenshot on the LG G Flex phone is really easy: press the power button and the volume down button at the same time. You can do so with two fingers, but you can also strategically press between both buttons if you prefer to use just one finger.

If you do it right, you’ll hear a snapping sound effect and see a visual cue that the screenshot was taken and is now stored on your device.

You don't need to screenshot images that are already downloadable. To see if you can download an image normally, just tap-and-hold the picture, and if a menu pops up that gives you options such as to save the photo, do that instead of the screenshot procedure. You'll end up with a clean image that doesn't need cropped.

How to Crop Screenshots on the LG G Flex

In some cases, after taking a screenshot, you might realize that the picture doesn’t look quite right and now you want to crop it. Here's how:

  1. Open the image to bring up the photo menu, and tap the pencil icon from the top.

  2. Choose Photo Studio.

  3. Select the crop tool to bring out another row of adjustment and image editing tools, including red-eye removal, a Face Glow tool, and straightening, rotation, flipping, and sharpening tools.

  4. Select Crop, and then adjust the box to where you want the image cropped. Swiping within the box moves the entire square to a different part of the screenshot, while pulling the handles resizes the crop box.

  5. Once you're satisfied with how the screenshot will be cropped, tap the crop icon to make the changes. Your cropped screenshot will be saved in one of your image folders, in our case the Screenshots folder because that’s where the source image came from.

You can move the edited screenshot to any album on your LG G Flex by tapping and holding its thumbnail from the originating folder to reveal a menu with the Move option. Since a screenshot is treated like any image, you can also delete them and and set one as the wallpaper or a contact's photo.
