Huawei, Vivo, and Xiaomi, are among the most famous Chinese smartphone brands in the world. Their smartphone models have proven to be popular, powerful, and affordable - a great combination that has allowed all three brands to sell in their millions both in China and overseas.

The most popular models of each brand are the Huawei Mate 9, Vivo X9 and the Xiaomi Redmi 4. One of the most popular features is taking a quick screenshot, however some users may be unaware of how to perform this special function on these models.


Today, we will show readers how to do a quick screenshot on the Huawei Mate 9, Vivo X9, and Xiaomi Redmi 4. If you do not own one of these phones, don't worry - you can still learn the most common methods and try them on your own phone.

Huawei Mate 9

Method 1: press "Power" and "Volume" buttons

As with most Android phones, Huawei Mate 9 utilizes a quick shortcut to capture the screen. Go to the screen you want to grab, then hold the power button and volume buttons at the same time - it's that easy!

Method 2: use the shortcut

Enter the screen you want to capture, then drag your finger from the top edge down to show the notifications bar. Tap on the Screenshot option.


Method 3: use smart screenshots / screen recording

From the Settings menu → Motion control → Smart screenshots → Screen control: On. Now, all you need to do is knock twice firmly with your knuckle to take a screenshot or draw an enclosed region with your knuckle to capture that part of the screen. You can also knock twice firmly with two knuckles together to start/stop recording a video clip of your onscreen actions.
