How to take screenshots on a Android phone

I little background on why I wrote this article. I was texting back and forth with a friend and they kept texting me screenshots of what was on their phone. I found it quite amusing that they where texting me what was on their phone. So, I decided to return the favor and text them back what was on my phone. There was a man next to me on the street while I was texting back and forth and he asked me how he could take screenshots of what was on his phone. I showed him how to take screenshots of what was on his phone and now I will show you how to take screenshots of what on your Android phone.

First, go to the screen that you want to capture an image of. Press and hold the power and volume down buttons at the same time until your screen flashes. You’ll then get a notification telling you that your screenshot is being saved.

Your screenshot will appear in the photo gallery. From there you can edit it or share it.

For Samsung phone users you need to hold down the power and home buttons instead just like the iPhone.
