Since the Galaxy S24 lineup is your usual slab-type phone, you do not have to wrestle too much when compared to foldable and flip-type devices. There are numerous methods as I have stated earlier, so pick the method that rocks your boat.

Good Old Button Combination

One of the oldest as well as most used methods for taking screenshots on your Android smartphone is by using the two-button combination. If you are someone switching from an iPhone to the new Galaxy S24 lineup, these steps are for you.

  4. With the image captured, you will see several additional tools that you can use to perform different actions.

Take Screenshots Using Palm Gesture

If the button combination is not something you like and want a fancier way to take screenshots, you can use your palm to do the task. Known as the Palm gesture, all you do is simply use the edge of your palm and swipe across the screen to capture a screenshot. But, before you do that, you will need to enable this feature. Here are the steps.
