How To Take Screenshot Without Using Any Apps – One of the most asked question from (new) Android user is “how can i take a screen capture on my device?”, or “how to take a screenshot on my Android device?”. Well, there’s many different way to take screen capture, depending on the brand you are using and which version of Android that running on it. Some people using the third party apps, whereas there’s an easy way to take a screenshot on your Android smartphone device without using any apps (depending on brand endorsement). In this post, i will share to all of you who wants to know it. This method can be used for Sony (and Sony Ericsson) Xperia, and some Samsung Galaxy devices. I don’t know whether this method can be used for any other devices, because i never try it on the other brand. Okay, let’s check the easy way
For Sony Ericsson Xperia devices that running with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) such as Xperia Ray, Live With Walkman, Active, Mini, Mini Pro etc. you just have to hold the power button, and there will shown a popup menu then choose take screenshot. The image will automatically saved on screenshot folder in the gallery.
For Samsung Galaxy with Android 2.3 running on it, all you have to do is just hold the power and “home” button simultaneously. If you failed to take screenshot, just try and try again till you get it. Because it is rather difficult to do. The image will automatically saved on screenshot folder in the gallery.
For Sony / Sony Ericsson Xperia and some Samsung Galaxy devices which running with Android 4.0, all you have to do is just hold the power and volume down button at nearly same time. Press the power button first, then with the lapse 0.1 second press the volume down button too. Hold them for about 1-2 seconds. The image will automatically saved on screenshot folder in the gallery.
Specifically for the third way, maybe you can use it for other brands that running with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
