Like the G3 before it, there are a couple of ways to capture what's on the G Flex 2's curvy screen

Like the majority of Android handsets, taking a screenshot on the LG G Flex 2 is a simple enough affair. It's just a matter of knowing the right button combinations and menu items. Then — boom — your screen's image is saved for posterity in the related folder within the Gallery app.

What's more, there's also a secondary way to grab a screenshot and annotate it, using the built-in QMemo+ application. Let's take a look at both after the break.

1. G Flex 2 screenshot — Method 1

As is the case with most Android smartphones, you can take a screenshot on the LG G Flex 2 at any time by following these instructions:

  1. Get the screen that you want to capture ready to go.
  2. Hold down the "volume down" and "power" buttons at the same time. (That's the middle button and the bottom button, as seen on the back of the G Flex 2.) You'll see the screenshot effect on-screen.
  3. Boom. Screenshot. The image will be saved in the "Screenshots" folder on your internal storage, and you can view this folder through the Gallery app.
  4. Alternatively, you can share your shot immediately with another app by dragging the notification shade down, finding your screenshot and using the "share" button.

The LG G Flex 2's preloaded QMemo+ app can also allow you to capture screenshots and draw on them. But there's a very specific way to do this, and it might be different to what you're used to on the G3 and older LG phones.

  1. Get the screen that you want to capture ready to go.
  2. Drag the notification shade down.
  3. Find the QMemo+ icon — by default it's the first one on the left, but you might need to scroll to find it.
  4. Tap the QMemo+ icon to take a screenshot — it'll take a second or so for the app to start, and you'll see the drawing tools at the top of the screen.
  5. From here you can draw and annotate on your screenshot, and tapping the disk icon will let you save to the QMemo+ or Gallery folders.

If you take a lot of screenshots, these can quickly eat into your phone's precious internal storage, since they're stored on the phone itself rather than any external SD card you might be using. Keep tabs on them by finding the "Screenshots" folder in the Gallery app.
