    Either power button and home or power and volume down. Same thing, they just save to different locations. (All to the gallery though)

    For some reason the power button + volume down does not take a screen shot, but power button + home does allow a screen shot to be taken.

    Power button + volume down does work it is just tricky. You have to press them at the same time or it won't work. Takes a little practice but once you get the hang of it, it becomes pretty easy. This way also saves the screen captures in a separate folder called screenshots so they are easier to find later.

    take note to do the power button + vol down you have to hold it for 2 seconds, but the power + home is instant, i do perfer the power + vol down, looks cooler and shows up in the notification bar for quick viewing, and also what icenija said about being in a different folder

    Then do power+volume down. It works also. You have to do both at the same time or else it'll lock the phone or decrease ring volume

    Does your power button work for everything else?

    I was following what everybody else said but it also wasn't working for me. I found the last comment rude so I went to another website and got the correct answer; press the power button down and hold. Right after, press the home button while you are still holding down the power button. Good Luck!

    Sorry, just have to ask, what was rude about Cattails_r_Edible's comment? He told you the answer, hold them down at the same time. Was it his use of an exclamation point?

    Its kinda of tricky both ways. For the power/home combo, hold down the power button then press the home button. For the power/vol down combo, press them at the same time.

    There are a few free screenshot apps in the play store. Just make sure to download the correct one; some are for rooted and a few for non-rooted phones

    While that is true, there is no need to download an app that the phone is able to do TWO different ways out of the box imo.

    If your device is running Android 4.0+, it will be able to take screenshots natively. If it's running any version below, it won't unless you're rooted.
