How to take screenshot using hardware buttons
- Press and hold the Power and Home button at the same time.
- Do not release before your phone gives you feedback in the form of either a flash, a sound or a vibration.
How to take screenshot using Palm Swipe Gesture
- Activate the gesture before you can actually use it. In order to do so, go into the Settings app and select the Motion menu.
- From the Motion menu, find out Hand Motions and then check the Palm Swipe to capture checkbox.
- Close the settings app, head to the screen which you want to capture.
- Shape your hand like a knife (your thumb facing up) and swipe across the screen horizontally from either side, edge to edge. If you do it correctly, a swipe animation will trigger and it will save the screenshot.
