Honor 8 Pro is Huawei’s latest flagship device. It runs EMUI, Huawei’s proprietary version of the stock Android OS. So things are a little different in EMUI when compared to Stock Android.
While there is only a single method to take screenshots in Stock Android which is to hold down your volume down and power buttons at the page where you want to take the screenshot.
This method works for Honor 8 Pro, but there are also two other much simple methods. Here is how to take a screenshot using those methods in your Huawei Honor 8 Pro.
3 Different Ways To Take a Screenshot On Honor 8 Pro
