Unlike Tecno’s Camon C9 which provides three options to taking screenshot, the infinix XOS gives you two options. The usual MTK Android method, and the notification tray option.

1. MTK Android Route

Usually, most Android phones, especially those running MediaTek processors, have a common way of taking screenshots.

Simply pressing and holding the volume down and Power button together does the trick.

2. Notification Tray Method

Infinix Hot 4, Hot S and the infinix Note 3 runs XOS and as earlier mentioned, XOS allows you to easily take screenshots as well as record your phone screen.

Simply swipe the screen downwards to display the quick menu. Thereafter, tap on Screen shot.

Doing so, the device will automatically take a screenshot of the screen. You can always find the screenshots in the gallery folder of the device.

So, there you have it guys. Taking screenshots on the infinix hot 4, infinix hot s and the infinix note 3 is that easy.


  1. I know of a method where you swipe three fingers vertically downwards. That is on the infinix note3, I have no idea if it is applicable to the others.
