For most Android TV users, taking a screenshot hasn’t been the easiest of tasks. This is truer if you’re not using the NVIDIA SHIELD (which is very user-friendly for screenshot grabbing). For the majority of Android TVs, you might have to connect your device to a PC via ADB and capture your screenshot. If you’re the average Android user, this entails a lot of work, and becomes quite inconvenient if all you’re looking for is a quick, simple screenshot.
The LeEco Super 4 X-series is one of the latest Android TVs to hit the market. Compared to most other Android TV boxes, the LeEco has quite a simple way to capture a screenshot. The simplicity of LeEco screen grabbing rivals that of the NVIDIA SHIELD.
The LeEco has a remote that is equipped with a ‘LeEco key’, located at the bottom. Once you press it, the LeEco’s TV ecosystem is launched, and you can access a ton of your content connected to your LeEco account.

Long-pressing the same button captures a screenshot and that’s simply what you need to take a screen grab on your LeEco Super 4 X-series Android TV. A simple long pressing of the big LeEco button and the system will notify you that a screenshot has been captured. This notification also gives you an option to view the captured image there and then.
With this very simple procedure, it appears that the LeEco Android TV is very well tuned for capturing screenshots.
But there’s a downside. The system isn’t that well equipped to share the same screenshot. There’s no share option in the ‘screenshot successfully created’ message. Your captured images will be stored within the native ‘Gallery’ app. But this Gallery app also doesn’t provide a ‘share’ option. It’s just a gallery for viewing your screen grabs.
Nonetheless, there’s a way around it. You can download another app to bring sharing to your LeEco Android TV system. You have so many options to choose from when it comes to a sharing app. You may want to go for a file manager such as the ES File Explorer, or go for an application that offers more capability. Perhaps the best app for this is Google Photos, which not only has native Android TV support. All you need to do is install Google Photos to your Android TV directly from the Play Store, and sync it to your account. This way, your screen grabs will automatically be synced with your Google account and you can access them from whatever device.
If you want to share manually, the LeEco comes with a couple of USB ports that you can connect a USB stick to. One of these ports is conveniently positioned at the top of the Android TV.
If you’re looking for an Android TV that makes it super easy to capture screenshots, the Super4 X-series TV should definitely be on your list of options.
