Take a Screenshot on My Phone

So you’ve reached a new level in a mobile game. Share it with your friends and show them how awesome you are by capturing a screenshot. There are several ways to capture your screenshots, and it depends on whether your phone has a physical home button or not. Some of the newer phones offer a palm swipe feature that does not require pressing any buttons.

Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Phones without a Physical Home Button

To take a screenshot on your phone, press and hold the Power and Volume Down keys simultaneously. The screen will flash indicating screenshot capture.

You can also take a screenshot with the palm swipe feature.
