    No able to screen shot on my A02 phone. Tried the power + volume down and palm swipe. Yet nothing. Help me out

    • Ekpa, Stephen Monday says:

      Try it again, just hope you are not doing it wrongly. NOTE: it is Volume down + power button, not power button + volume down. The order at which you press the keys matters. Alternatively, you download screen snapping app from play store.
