How to record the screen of an Aligator S4040

Recording the screen of your mobile/cell phone Aligator S4040 in a video with sound can be very useful to perform a tutorial or show an acquaintance how to perform certain tasks in an Aligator S4040, save in a video file and then send it or upload it to a platform like YouTube or social networks.

Sometimes we would like to record on video with sound a story that we have seen on Instagram of an acquaintance, a phone call or video call with a family member to keep it as a souvenir or to use it as evidence or a TikTok video.

To make this recording in your Aligator S4040 follow these steps:

If, on the contrary, what you want is to take a screenshot of your Aligator S4040 in a still image instead of video, click on the following link and follow the indicated steps Capture screen on Aligator S4040

Estimated time: 5 minutes.

1- First step:

First of all we are going to check that we have the screen recording icon in the quick access panel of our Aligator S4040. (If we already have it, we can go to point 4).
To check it, we unlock our S4040 and slide a finger from the top edge of the screen down a few centimeters to display the quick panel in which the quick settings will appear such as connecting to a Wi-Fi network, connecting Bluetooth, mute, airplane mode, etc. Slide down again with one finger to display the full panel, check if it has the screen recording icon shown below:

2- Second step:

If we do not see the screen recording icon on the quick panel of our Aligator S4040 click on the edit icon of the quick panel, which is normally the symbol of a pencil.

3- Third step:

The icons of the settings that we have already defined in the Aligator S4040 quick panel will appear above and below, separated by a horizontal line, the settings icons that we can add to the panel, we look for the screen recording icon, click on the icon and without releasing it we drag to the top to add it to the quick panel. If you do not see the screen recording icon on your S4040 device, it may be disabled by the manufacturer or not available on Aligator S4040, in which case we go to the point “If we do not have the option to record screen natively”.

4- Fourth step:

We already have the screen recording icon on the Aligator S4040 quick panel, now to start recording we have two options: simultaneously press the volume up and power buttons of the S4040 or a simpler and less likely to fail which is to unfold the panel fast by sliding a finger from the top of the screen and pressing the screen recording icon that we have seen in the previous steps.

5- Fifth step:

Select the quality of the HD or mini video. The microphone sound of your Aligator S4040 will be recorded by default (this is useful for example to explain the operation of an app to an acquaintance or to record a message while recording the video on the screen of Aligator S4040) so If you don't want the video to have external sounds, you should record it in a noise-free environment.

If the Aligator S4040 does not have the option to record screen

In the event that the screen recording icon is not available and that simultaneously pressing the volume up and power buttons on the Aligator S4040 does not start the video recording, we will have to download an application from the application store to perform this action.

Your Aligator S4040 do not have Google Play or another apps store?

Check the following article to learn how to install applications without Google Play from alternative stores and how to install Google Play if your S4040 does not have it incorporated Google Play alternatives.

To do this we go to our application store either Play Store, Galaxy Store or any other that we use on our Aligator S4040 and search for “screen recorder”, we must bear in mind that any free application that we download will contain advertising and we must not download any application that ask us for excessive permissions such as access to Bluetooth, contacts or the camera. The permissions that will be required for any screen recording application are “Access to multimedia content and files”, the permission to “Record video and audio” and the “Show above” permission is optional if you want to have a floating window with the controls of record, microphone, stop, etc.

Once installed we can return to the first step of this tutorial.

You will be able to see the video of the screen recording in the photo gallery of your Aligator S4040.
