Take screenshot on Android Asus devices

I have already posted an article about How to Capture android 4.1 Jellybean device screen. Now I am going to write how to take screenshot on Android Asus devices. Taking screen print on Asus Zenfone 2 is almost identical. However, there is an additional method to screen capture on Zenfone 2. This method actually works with Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 6 too.

How to take screenshot on Asus Zenfone mobile

Asus Zenfone mobile has different options. These different variants are based on the size of RAM and internal storage. There are also two variants based on screen resolution. One is 720 and rest 1080p.  All these variants run on Android 5.0 Lollipop and ZenUI. So taking screenshot on Zenfone 2 all variants remains same. Below are the 3 different ways of taking screenshots.

Option 1: Android Default Method

Capturing screenshot using this method, go to the screen on which you want to take the screenshot. Then press and hold volume down key and power button simultaneously. The screenshot will be taken and it will be saved in photos folder.

Option 2: Using the recent apps key

This method taking screenshot is much easier than the previous method. To take screenshot on Zenfone mobile using this method, follow the steps given below.

Go to settings-> ASUS customised settings

Tap on to ‘Recent apps key’.

Choose the ‘Tap and hold to capture screen’.

Now go to the any screen on which you want to screenshot, tap and hold recent apps key (right side key of home button) for a second. The screenshot will be taken.

Captured print screen will be saved under photos or Gallery.

Option 3: By adding screenshot icon to the quick settings menu.

Open the quick settings menu.

Tap on to the edit quick settings icon.

Under ‘select tools to show on quick settings panel’, select screenshot. Keep in mind; you can only select 4 tools. So, for enabling screenshot, you need to disable one of other 4 tools which are already selected.


Tap on to save.

Now go the screen on which you want to take screenshot and access quick settings panel and tap on to screenshot icon. The screenshot will be taken.


The captured print screen will be saved in Gallery or photos.
