- Hold Volume Down button and Lock button!
You can't take screenshots like on Android 2+.
- Using hand motion feature - For this enable Palm Swipe to Capture feature and swipe your hands above the phone to take a screenshot
- Using swipe option
For reference look at the guide on How to take screenshot on Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini
If you are using stovk ROM then you can try this.
1. Click the MENU button and select SETTINGS.
2. Select MOTION.
3. Under “Hand Motion” settings, check “Palm swipe to Capture” checkbox.
just swipe your palm horizontally(L-->R/R-->L) over your screen it will capture a screen shot.
HOLD down the POWER button and the HOME button at the same time. (Remember timing is imporatant)
