Do you want to learn how to take a screenshot on your Moto G5 Plus? I still remember those dark times when in order to take a screenshot on an Android phone, you had to install the Android developer tools.

These things are now a part of the past and you can easily share conversation between friends or show them what’s on your smartphone screen. Of course, the fastest way to do so is take a screenshot. As with most Android phones, taking a screenshot on the Moto G5 Plus is simple enough, if you know the trick. And if you don’t, here I am to show it to you!
