[TUTORIAL] How to take a screenshot in Android devices

How to take a screenshot in Android devices

Introduction
Now that I have serious interest in learning about movile devices and now that this site supports a mobile version, I want to teach you how to take an screenshot from your ANDROID mobile device.

The Easy Way
If you have Android 4.0 and up, there's a default (and built in) way to do it: just press at the same time the POWER and VOLUME DOWN button at the same time for 1 second. it will show a bordered snapshot and it will notify you about the new screenshot taken.


The Hard Way
If you have an older version of Android, you would need to check if your phone / tablet have a special way to take the screenshot. If by no means you can't do it with your device, you'd need an app to take screenshots. There are several ones which implies rooting your android, but there's now a nice way to do it without taking any risks: Screenshot Ultimate


Are You Rooted?? (You're a Bad Guy :D ): an alternate way
If you read about rooting Android, and you actually did it (or it comes rooted), then you can use  a tool like Capture Screen, which works too in this kind of androids.


Are There Other Options?
Actually, yes. Most of them you have to pay for them, but I personally think that a simple task like this should be achieved free (and Android from 4.0 supports that idea). This suggested apps promote additional features like screenshots when you shake your device, or controlling where the screenshots are saved, etc. It's just a decision of taste selecting and/or using this kind of tools.


Final Words
I hope this tutorial serves as a start point to debug. Sorry if it looks as a simple thing, but, as strange as it sounds, there are people who don't know how to do it. Let's expect more from this topic. Cheers :D
