Default Screenshots

Somehow, by accident, I have a screenshot of one of my home screens in My Gallery. My phone is not rooted and I have not downloaded any screenshot apps. I did not know that the Samsung Mesmerize (USCC) had a built-in screenshot app. Anyone have any info on this?

If you hold down the back key at the bottom then press the power button, it will take a screenshot. This function is available in Android 2.2.

Ah ha! Not sure why I would have done that, but I'll try on purpose now. Thank you very much!

I do it a couple of times a week, trying to pull the phone out of my pocket.

After trying on purpose, I have figured out that the back button needs to be held (until I feel the phone vibrate) then when hitting the power button the screenshot is taken. Nice to know that we don't need an app for screenshots.

@kmf,

I did this yesterday too after looking all over the place on the internet to figure out how to do it. I went to the bar after work and did it on accident! Then I figured it out after a couple pints haha!
