Do you need to take a screenshot on your Android Phone? Here is easy step by step tutorial How to take a screenshot on Android phone.
How to take a screenshot on Android 4.0 and later:
If your Android phone is running Ice Cream Sandwich, or Android 4.0, or any later version of Android, screenshots are nearly as easy as the iPhone.
- Hold the “Volume Down” button
- Then click the Power/Sleep/Wake button.
- You’ll see a notification that the screenshot was saved, and a camera-like flash and sound.
Head to your “Gallery” app (which could be named “Photos” or something similar on certain phone brands). Inside, look for a “Screenshots folder,” where you’ll find your snaps. Select any photo and choose the Share option (sometimes revealed by tapping on the photo again), which then allows for emailing, Dropbox-ing, or any other means you’d like of sharing your screen.
How to take a screenshot on Android 2.3 and earlier:
You have two real options when it comes to snagging a screenshot on Android phones that aren’t up to the bleeding edge. There is a third option that involves rooting your Android phone and installing root-required screenshot apps. But the apps I once vouched for in this regard are no longer in the Market/Play Store, and rooting is quite a bit more difficult, and much more risky, than the SDK method that yields about the same results.
