The phone keeps taking screenshots.

Each time the phone was picked up, another screenshot would be taken.

Android Screenshot

Android traditionally struggled with a simple screenshot option, It took a combination of button presses, or secret finger touches on the screen. This elusive Android screenshot would vary between the Android phone manufacturers, so each new phone brought a new headache for screenshots.

Left Button

The Umidigi Power 7 has a left button and the classic volume up/down and power on the phone's right. The new button is programmed from the factory for screenshots. Positioning the left button puts it in a prime location to be pressed when you pick up the phone. This left button activates the screenshots.

A rubber case compounds the problem by making the left button more responsive. A slight touch on the button takes a screenshot when it's in the case.

The programmable left button can have three actions, one for a single click, another for a double click and a third app for a long press.

Disable Screenshots

It is possible to assign different apps to the left button, with an option for 'do nothing'. Any option has to be better than the screenshot, but for this customer, we chose 'none' for the left button - smart key - single click, double click and long press.
