If you have an Android phone and you want to capture your screen view but unluckily you don’t know how to take a screenshot. However many people know how to capture a screenshot on an Apple iPhone set (hold the power and home buttons down at the same time), but not everyone knows how to take a screenshot on an Android phone. Recently Android got the ability to capture screenshots without first having to plug your cell phone into your PC and running the Android SDK. If you have a phone running Android 4.0 or higher, taking screenshots is fast and easy.

To take a screenshot on most Android phones:

  1. Hold the volume down and power buttons.                                        to take a screenshot on an android phone use power and volume down button

  2. First of all, go to the screen that you wish to capture an image of  Press and then hold the power and volume down keys at the same time until your screen display flashes.

When this happens you will get a notification which indicates that your display is saved. Your display will be saved in your Android phone’s photo gallery, and after that from there you may easily share it or edit it. So finally you got that taking a screenshot of a phone is so simple.

If you have a Samsung phone then you need to do something different: Instead of holding the power and volume down keys at the same time, you may take screenshots like you commonly used to do on the iPhone by holding the power and home buttons. The display will still flash as it does on the other cell phones and then you will still get a notification once the screenshot is saved in your photo gallery app.
