ZTE Quest n817 selfie-stick

I have this dreadful phone. The instructions for the selfie-stick I bough say "change the settings for the VOLUME key from zoom to camera." Anyone know how, if possible, I can do this? TIA

    If a selfie stick is requesting that you set the volume control keys to take a photo instead of zoom, then that means it is effectively emulating a headset (since you can use the volume control keys on a wired headset to act as a shutter release.

    I have not used that specific model of phone, but most ZTE smartphones, use the volume control keys as a shutter release by default.

    First of all, you should do it on your phone. Launch the camera app, go to the "setting" button and change the 'Volume button options' to 'Capture' from 'Zoom'.  So you can use the selfie stick in the way you like.
