    I'm just wondering if it's possible to take screenshots with the S3 Mini, like my iPad

    It should be volume down + power button. Try that combo. :)
    Also, welcome to the forums!

    Thanks for the welcome bud :) Also, I've tried your suggestion but it just shows the volume being turned down and then the screen locks, or i hold down the power button too long and it asks me if i want to turn it off... Is there any other combo that might work, or am I just pressing the buttons wrong?

    On that phone its the power and home buttons at the same time for about half a second. Takes a little practice at first.

    In my case nor VOL_DOWN+POWER nor HOME+POWER doesn't work.
    I did a factory reset, but with no luck
