OnePlus added a screenshot functionality so that you can do more with it rather than just keeping the screenshot simple. There’s one way to take screenshots and it’s a native feature on Android devices, OnePlus 5T does support it. The default screenshot option is aided by editing options like scrolling screenshot, cropping/rotating the image, changing colors and contrast, doodle over it, apply filters to the image, and many more.

When you find a photo or something on the phone’s display, just hit the Power and Volume Down key combination for a few milliseconds.

  • Press the Power button and Volume Down button at the same time to capture the screen.

Once you capture the screen, you’ll see some options like edit and share until the screenshot disappears. You can still access the screenshot from the notification panel and the gallery. These options will help you to edit the screenshot without relying on any third-party apps.
