Hello Mi Fans!

If the volume buttons are not specifically mentioned, you may not pay much attention to them. This is because most people use them to adjust the volume and have no other use. So why bother? If you just want to use the volume buttons to adjust the volume, of course, that's all they can be used for. Why not demand more from them? Are you embarrassed by asking more from a set of volume buttons? There's no need to be so simple-minded.

Besides, our volume buttons have always been excellent, proficient in a variety of skills, but yet you have overlooked so many of their advantages! So, let's check how amazing the volume buttons are!

Instant Screenshot:-
Sometimes when chatting on QQ or WeChat, you just need to simply capture a full screen and send it to the other member without any complicated retouching. In this case, a quick screenshot will do the trick. Press and hold the power button and the volume down button to take a quick screenshot.

Shaky photos?
Think you can take a steady photo by holding your phone with both hands? But when you taoe the shutter button on the screen, the phone shakes with the force. This embarrassing situation can happen even when you hold your phone with both hands, let alone with just one hand. In this case, do you still have the nerve to call yourself. Great photographer? No matter if the phone is held with both hands or just one hand, now you can use the volume buttons as the shutter button to easily capture steady photos of that smiling someone.

Fumbling to turn off the alarm often falls miserably:-
It so happens that on those mornings you wish to sleep in, your alarm clock rings shamefully. Having not yet sleep enough, you most likely don't open your eyes, but rather try to poke the screen randomly to make it stop. In your desire and panic to keep sleeping, the only way seems to knock it on the door. You wake up to find that the broken alarm clock is actually your phone. Are you able to resist going out all month to be able afford a new phone? If not, you'd best hurry up and set the volume button to turn off the alarm. No matter how much you don't want to open your eyes, you just need to touch the volume button and know that the alarm clock will turn off as soon as you press it!

Use physical buttons to efficiently adjust the media volume:-
If you don't have any special requirements regarding your ringtone volume and do not need to adjust it frequently, but rather often need to adjust the media volume when watching movies or listening to music, then you can set the function of the volume buttons to adjust the media volume, and your phone's ringtone will be fixed at a set volume. Once set, press the volume up or down buttons to adjust the media volume so that you can quickly turn the volume down if you don't want to disturb others when watching a movie.

Enable Vibrate mode quickly:-
If you have the opposite habit and frequently adjust your ringtones volume to turn it down or off, or enable vibrate, you should set the function of the volume buttons to adjust the ringtone volume. Once set, in addition to pressing the volume up or down buttons to adjust the ringtone volume, you can press and hold the volume down button to quickly turn on vibrate mode.

By using the tricks above, the volume buttons will seem like powerful keys capable of anything.
