How To Take a Screenshot on the Samsung Galaxy A02

Samsung has included three different methods that users can use to take a screenshot on the Galaxy A02. The first method, which is also the most popular one, is the traditional way of pressing two hardware keys at the same time. The two other methods include Samsung’s own software to make it even easier.

1. Galaxy A02 Screenshot – Hardware Keys

The first method to take a screenshot on your Galaxy A02 is to use the physical keys located on the side of the phone. This is the traditional method that is used the most.

Grab your phone, press the power button, and volume down button at the same time. Do not release the keys until the screen flashes white. This indicates that a screenshot has been taken. After the screen flashes white, a small menu bar will appear at the bottom of the screen. The menu will have three buttons. The first button is to edit and crop the image. The second button is to enable Scroll Capture, while the third button is to share the image on social media.

2. Galaxy A02 Screenshot – Palm Swipe to Capture

If for some reason the first method does not work due to broken buttons or some other issue, then you take a screenshot on your Galaxy A02 using the “Palm Swipe to Capture” feature. This is Samsung’s solution and does not require any hardware button.

To enable Palm Swipe, go to Settings -> Advanced Features -> Motions and Gestures. There will be an option called Palm swipe to capture. It is disabled by default. Tap on it to enable. Now swipe your hand across the screen to take a screenshot. The phone will vibrate to indicate that the task has been accomplished.

3. Galaxy A02 Screenshot – Assistant Menu

If you want something easier to work with, then you can try Assistant Menu. This is the last resort if all the hardware keys of your Galaxy A02 are broken and nothing else works for you.

To enable Assistant Menu, go to Settings > Accessibility > Interaction and dexterity and tap on the Assistant menu. A small circle will appear. Tap on the circle. A  number of options will appear. Tap on Screenshots. The screen will flash white, indicating that a screenshot has been taken.

These are some ways you can take a screenshot on the Samsung Galaxy A02. It is nice of Samsung to include a few software features to be able to take screenshots when the hardware buttons are broken. Do you have any other ways to take a screen capture? Let us know below.


  1. My Samsung A02 3Gb/32gb doesn’t have the Settings option
    Also, the volume keys are above the on-off switch on the right.

    • Hi, your only option then is solution #3, using the Assistant Menu. My phone have the volume buttons positioned the same as yours, using solution #1 does not work.

  2. Hii I tried some times the solution #1 and the only that it worked for me (My AO2 is the one with the buttons only on the right side) was not to hold it until the screen went white, but to press the Volume Down key and ON/OFF key at the same time and let go immediately. Hope this helps!!
