Taking screenshots, or capturing a photograph of the current display on your Samsung Galaxy S5, is a crucial feature of any modern smartphone or tablet.
The good news is that this capability is built right into Android 11 and One UI 3.1, so there’s no need to download any third-party apps to get it.
