How to take screenshots on Android phone?

Press Sleep button and Home button simultaneously.

Usually, to take screenshots on Android Phone, you should press simultaneously the power button and the home button or the power button and the volume down button. If these two ways don’t work on your phone, you have to resort to some screenshot programs like Screenshot Free and Screenshot Ultimate. 


You can simply tap vol- and power button at the same time.

If you have a Samsung Galaxy S II, first root your phone, then take screenshots by pressing the Home + Lock buttons. If not, you'll have to download an app. Screenshot apps include Screenshot It!, Screenshot, ShootMe, and PicMe.
