Take a screenshot with FP3/FP3+

 

With the Fairphone 3/Fairphone 3+ (FP3/FP3+), there are two ways to make a screenshot. You can choose the new, quick feature or opt for the method you might remember from previous Android versions where you do not have to touch the screen.

Your screenshots are saved on the internal memory of the phone and are accessible in three ways.

Your screenshots are accessible in three ways. Via the Notification bar, via your File manager, or via the Google Photos app.
