    I thought the screen shot feature was skipped on our devices in ICS update. But I came to know it is possible to take screen shots on our phone.

    Its simple, just hold Volume down and power button simultaneously for about 2 seconds

    For examples see the attachments...

    I have a Samsung I9100 (Galaxy S2) // Android 4.0.4

    For that particular device it's the power button and home button for ~1sec

    You should see an animation and an icon on the notification area that will take you directly to the screenshot you just took.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for this! I was going crazy because I upgraded to 4.0.4 and the volume/power button were no longer working. I found you have to hold the power button a certain way - like right in the middle for it to work. Otherwise it brings up the task manager.

    Hello, my first time on a forum so I apologize for any incompetence.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE, android version 4.1.2, model number SGH-I727R
    I just updated to this andriod version, and before the update I had no problem holding the home&power key to take a screenshot.
    Now however, I am not able to take a screenshot/screen capture. I have tried holding the home/power key, home/volume down key, and power/volume down key but nothing works. I have tried short and long durations, as well as pressing one button a microseconds before engaging the other button.

    I really don't feel like doing a factory reset as I just did one less than a week ago. Any help would be much appreciated, as I have already exhausted most help from reading other threads.
