    The camera is probably the app you will find yourself using every day and there is no doubt you want to launch the camera app as quickly as possible to capture every moment.

    Honor 8 provides two options to quickly launch the camera either using the fingerprint scanner or the volume down key. Let us look at how to configure those options.

    Using fingerprint scanner

    Honor 8's fingerprint scanner also acts as a button and provides options to tie specific actions for a single press, double press, and press & hold. Honor calls this Smart key. You can configure to launch the camera in any one of those options.

    This option works when the device is locked or unlocked.

    You can access the smart key options in:
    Settings->Smart assistance->Smart key

    Below is an example of configuring double press to open the camera.

    Using the volume down key when locked

    Under camera settings, you can setup Ultra Snapshot setting to open the camera specifically when your device is locked. You can launch the settings by swiping left in the camera app. The Ultra Snapshot uses volume key and you will need to double -press the volume key to open the camera.

    Note that this setting only works when the device is locked.
