Steps

  1. 1
    Before we begin, we make sure that the phone is unlocked
    .
    We should be on the home screen. When the screen is turned off, the Lenovo A7000-series smartphone does have the option to allow us to take a picture by activating "Quick snap". This will allow us to take a picture by double-pressing the up or the down volume button, which is located on the right-hand side of the phone.

    Let's tap "Feature" one time
    .
    The top option is "Quick Snap". The options says: "Double press any of the volume keys while the screen is off to snap a picture. If playing music, these will be used only for volume adjustment." If music is playing, and the screen is off, then double-pressing volume buttons will only decrease or increase the volume. We will not snap a picture. However, if we are not playing music, "Quick Snap" will be activated.
