3 ways to take screen shots on android devices

1. Using the Stock Android Operating System

Since Android 4.0, taking screenshots using nothing more than your device has been a breeze.
Press and hold the Volume Down + Power buttons at the same time, and you’ll see a brief onscreen animation followed by a confirmation in the notification bar that the action was successful.
There is a knack to getting the timing right. Press the power button too soon and you’ll lock your device’s screen.
Press the volume button too soon and you’ll end up changing the device’s audio settings.

2. Using Manufacturer Shortcuts

Not all phones use the standard Android method.
Samsung devices require you to press the Power + Home buttons instead. Thereafter, the process is the same. You’ll be given an on-screen confirmation and the image will be viewable in your gallery app.
Some phones use the standard method but also have additional options. For example, on the Sony Xperia Z5 you can press the power button to access the options menu. From there, you can take screenshots and record the screen.

3. Using Screenshot applications

 There all lots of Android applications to take scrrenshots. Getting on can be a good idea because most of the allow editing after screenshoting.
