For some time now, i have always wondered how to take screenshot on my tecno android tablet(Tecno N9) but due to maybe negligence, i have always let that slide. Just during the early hours of today, there was an urgent need to take a screenshot on a Tecno android Phone, Precisely a P5 and that was when tutorial became a necessity. Thanks to a fellow geek by the name Jonathan who also happens to be a frequent follower of this blog, who gave me a quick tip who worked on my tablet and on the friend’s phone. It’s this same quick tip i have come to share with you today and all credits goes to Jonathan Ismaila.

Just like my previous issue, a lot of people must have been wondering how they could take screenshots or screengrabs on their tecno android phones and tablets. If you are in such situation, worry no more as this post is sure to give a definite solution. I have confirmed it working on Tecno P5 android phone and Tecno N9 android tablet although Jonathan can shed more light to which phones this can work with via the comment session.

Yea. Thanks Papa Sam. This tip ONLY works on devices which operate on OS version 4.0 and above. Hence, users with lower version eg Tecno N3, P3 etc with android 2.3 will only make a mess of the whole show.
Tablets on android 4.2 (I can’t say of phones) have a button on the screen that enables this feature. Just click the button and have your screenshots.
Anyway, I think there is an app that does same function; forgive me I don’t know the name because you would reason with me it is of no use getting an app when the function is in-built on my phone. Moreover, those low end phones are almost extinct.
